Abstract:

The report covers the design and test of a small special purpose patrol boat. The boat was designed to carry 4 men at speeds up to 15 knots, with special emphasis on a very shallow draft capability six inches. Propulsion was obtained by using an open propeller in a tunnel, so that there was no protrusion below the keel.
