is effective. Supposing that he wishw by
to apply tht invention to a lifeboat
which it already fitted with watertight
compartments, ht would fill
those spaces with an indefinite number
of closed tubes, each only a few
inches long, made of some strong impervious
material such as waterproof
paper. But a boat 'with sucht
is not necessary, for the little
cases can be held in a canvas band
which can be nailed along the sidet
of any ordinary rowboat, and render
it quite unsinkable. The principle
can alto be applied to life belts and
buoyt replacing the cork ordinarily
used, with a great saving of expense.
In the trials referred to, a specially
designed boat, v.ith tubes it
along her tides as well as fore and aft,
righted herself after being purposely
capsized, although fitted with a mast
and tail; while an'ordinary boat similarly
treated failed to sink, althpugh by
the bung wat removed to fill her with
water,and teven men were aboard.
