Default new hull technology

I had a brainstorm ( or brain fart) and think i just invented the newest technology for hulls it can even be applied to existing hulls or new hulls..not sure i want to divulge it though till i patent it!!

do yourself a favor and hire an attorney to do the entire patent, you can start by doing a search though. The actual patent review process takes a year an a half to two years minimum but you are protected from the actual filing date good luck. If you need an outstanding attorney that specializes in this let me know and i will put you in contact it is money well spent.

The United States Patent office issued the first patent for "Step bottom speedboats" in 1904.

Hope your idea is right on......we need some new technology. Good luck.

"Dimples" was looking at a golf ball and thought that would be perfect for a boat hull, same idea less area in contact with water when aired out or moving at high rate of speed. so think about it if hull was dimpled (like a golf ball surface) less surface area touching water but when hitting waves you get benefit of full area of hull..can even be adapted , maybe with a skin to existing hulls??

A ball moving through air experiences two major aerodynamic forces, lift and drag. Dimpled balls fly farther than non-dimpled balls due to the combination of two effects: First, the dimples delay separation of the boundary layer from the ball. Early separation, as seen on a smooth sphere, causes significant wake turbulence, the principal cause of drag. The separation delay caused by the dimples therefore reduces this wake turbulence, and hence the drag

Americas Cup racers have used a similar technology since the eighties, 3M developed a transfer sheet that had a series of small oval shaped dots that had favorable results. They were a male instead of female, in other words they stuck out rather then in. The problem with using a golfball style dimples is going to be the laminar flow of the water. Hydro dynamics and aerodynamics dont work the same (well sometimes but not here ) It would be interesting to see what it would do though
