An Anti-Seasick Boat.
M. True, a French naval officer, has
Invented a boat which, he says, will
neither pitch nor roll, and, therefore,
will not cause seasickness. As the
roll of a wave rarely lasts longer than
10 seconds in a narrow sea like the
Mediterranean, and 15 seconds in larg
er seas like the Atlantic, his vessel
would have to have a counter-roll last
ing 22 seconds. The form of the ves
sel might be described as a combina
tion of submarine and platform, the
latter rising high above the surface of
the sea. In the submarine 30.0. feet
long, 75 feet Iroad and 12 feet deep,
would be placed the boilers, engines
and" steering gear, which would be
submerged to a depth of 12 feet From
the submarine would rise vertically
two floaters 200 feet long and 10 feet
broad, lying parallel at a distance of
65 feet from each other. Communi
cation would be maintained by thess
floaters between the submarine and
the platform, containing a cabin, at a
height of 30 feet above the water.
This craft would have a displacement
of 6,300 tons and would be propelled
at a speed of Id knots an hour by en
gines of 16,000 horse-power. Phila
