So come on folks answer the question or shut the ...up. 43 posts on this thread 4 were paul's 5 tried to help and the rest were quite the opposite and you ought to be ashamed.
Paul, I don't know how you should proceed but like nOwOrries I wish you luck. My only suggestion is to seek your answers somewhere else perhaps a Patent Lawyer
Shame?...Ah come on..

People tried to help but he said he had no money for patent/lawyers..and was not looking for capital...what else is there to do but question him?

I agree with those about mass and physics....cant be done on a large scale....a model is easy a 1000' oil tanker Impossible.
"Go Simple...Go Large"

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.

The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

I'm surprised no one mentioned pykrete with all the logs pics floating around...

And Paul:

Put together a simple presentation that includes film of a small scale prototype (that you'll have to build) and show it to various manufacturers (the more data you have to back your claims, the better) in order to show how pleasure boating can be made as safe and as comfortable as possible (include
CAD renderings of a full size vessel, and mock up pictures of people having fun). Have them sign NDA's and get some $$ to fund a full size prototype. Develop this and prove the concept to the masses, pre-sell some boats, and contract for a 5% royalty on every vessel sold. Sell 10,000 hulls at US $250k each and collect something like US $125 million.

Send me a check for US $5 million for this advice, and we'll call it square.
