Marine Equipment Patenting of Super Sting R8 Marine Innovates Marine Logging System

A number of marine industry patents have been in the news lately.  Among those is the marine equipment patent issued for the SuperSting R8 Marine of the AGI group.  This is an innovative Marine Logging System.  As per the recent news report of  www.idswater.com, the new system consisting the Marine Log Manager software, the SuperSting Marine and an electrode towing cable, makes it all the more convenient for formatting data. It also   helps in maneuvering the boat track and arranging the data for the inversion software. While the SuperSting Marine serves to record and store the required data, the Marine Log Manager software does the most significant job of editing and formatting the recorded data. It is also made to engineer the boat track and the resistivity data on the image of an imported map. Also, unlike the regular metal electrodes, its anti-corrosive graphite electrode and the water block prevent the water from infiltrating into the electrode c

Patenting Boats With “Legs”

As a Fort Lauderdale patent attorney with a special interest in boat patents and the yachting industry in general, I am lucky to be in a city of over 42,000 yachts and over 100 marinas.  Nevertheless, I have never come across a vessel as unusual as the one pictured to the left. According to an article relating to patenting boat designs  at thenewstribune.com . This 99-foot mystery vessel with legs was designed as a metallic spider riding on two pontoons appeared from a fog bank on the dock at Port of Ilwaco. The Spider boat attracted much attention, and the owner of the boat was still obscure when the photographs of the craft were released.

The description of the boat stated that the vessel had a pair of flexible hulls flexibly coupled to a ‘cabin’ between and above the hulls. This allowed the hulls to independently […]

Marine Equipment Patent for A Lightning Rod

A marine equipment patent has recently issued for a new and novel lightning rod.  According to an article posted in yachtinsure.com, this patent is licensed selectively to Marine Lightning Protection Inc. The original lightning rod was invented by Benjamin Franklin in 1750. This lightning rod served the purpose of protecting the ships. Franklin later concluded that a lightning rod could shield a building from the strike of a lightning by providing an appropriate path for the current to flow. This scientific technology is still going through modern-day refinements for the marine protection. Ewen Thomson of the University of Florida applied the traditional science that has been used in lightning protection systems for the purpose of ground installations. According to Dr. Thomson, the removal of the invalid key assumptions in the traditional model and the reinterpretation of the fundamental science have brought forth a new model, that allowed the development of the innovative te

Boat with Outstanding Structural Support Merits Patent

It appears new and innovative designs are in order for boats, with a recent patent being issued for Boat Ramp, according to an article at www.patentstorm.us. The boat is enclosed in a ladder-style frame with C-shaped elongated lateral side rails secured in separate parallel conditions and C-shaped cross support beams. There are two ends to the frame, one at the water end and the other at the shore end. The patented invention is designed to provide sufficient support for the boat. The boat, at the shore end, engages a braced winch assembly used for loading boats onto the ramp. The components of the ramp are designed specifically to enable parcel shipment to any location of all components in an unassembled condition and can be easily assembled through well-known and widely used household tools.

Patented Energy Generators To Offer Clean And Ecological Energy

The groundbreaking invention of Eolic Marine Electrical Generator “GEEM” has been granted United States Patent No. 20030201645. According to an article in freepatentsonline.com, the generator captures the huge impulse force of water and wind in generating mechanical energy and re-transforms the mechanical energy into clean and ecological electrical energy that does not require the consumption of vital oxygen. The immense split, self-regulating panels are radially fixed to a rotary central shaft in a dihedral angle. With this arrangement, it captures by shock the inexhaustible energy of the waves, the ocean currents or the wind. The panels can also be fixed on flying or rotary machines of high speed that has panels formed by oscillating vanes at a certain time of a turn of 360 degrees. The invention would permit the renewal of resources as well as help obtain electrical energy from any part of the planet such as from forests, cities, deserts, country
