SHEET t UP 4 FIG. 77. \m

MARINE CRAFT This invention relates to boat hulls and to means'for closing an opening therein and is a Continuation-ln- Part of my co-pending Patent Application Ser. No. 887,295 filed Dec. 22, 1969 now US. Pat. No. 3,674,170.

According to the present invention in a horizontally extending part of the deck of a boat hull an opening for the insertion of a bin, a bevelled perimetrical flange surrounding said opening having an upper surface which is above said deck, a cover for said opening, said cover having a top wall with downwardly depending flange walls which surround said perimetrical flange and extend downwardly below said upper surface in closed position of said cover whereby water and the like will flow downwardly from said cover outside said perimetrical flange onto said horizontally extending part of said deck, and means for retaining said cover in said closed position.

Preferably said horizontally extending part of said deck surrounding said perimetrical deck is formed as drainage channels into which water and the like will flow from said cover and said drainage channels maybe arranged to extend to a bulkhead in said boat hull or to an outer wall of said boat hull.

The bin may be provided with an upper outwardly directed end flange spaced from said channel and resting on said perimetrical flange. Thus, the cover not only provides protection for articles carried in the bin but also can be arranged to act to hold it in position when said cover is arranged over said bin.

In one convenient arrangement at least one elastic shock cord is positioned to overlie said opening and serving to retain said cover in closed condition.

The invention also includes a construction in which in a deck of a boat hull; a recess having vertically ex tending recess walls which define all the sides of said recess said recess being provided with an opening for the insertionof a bin, a bevelled perimetrical flange surrounding said opening from said recess walls, drainage channels formed between said perimetrical flange and said recess walls, and a cover for said opening, said cover having a top wall with respective downwardly depending flange walls, the heights of said flange walls conforming to those of said recess walls in closed position of said cover, a drainage channel extension extending through an opening in said recess walls to a vertically extending wall of said hull, whereby water and the like will flow from said cover outside said perimetrical flange into said drainage channels and said drainage channel extension; and retainer meansfor retaining said cover in said closed position.

If desired said drainage channels can be inclined to the horizontal.

Any suitable material can be used for making the container but it is particularly adapted for manufacture in a plastics material and if the hull of the craft is also made from' a plastics material a good seal can be obtained between the perimetrical flange and the flange FIG. 1 is a cross-sectional side elevation of a storage container according to the present invention in position in a boat hull,

FIG. 2 is an isometric view of part of a boat hull adapted to receive the container and the container lid,

FIG. 3 is a cross-sectional side elevation of an alternative construction,

FIG. 4 is a cross-sectional side elevation of part of a boat hull of an alternative construction,

FIG. 5 is a cross-sectional side elevation of another alternative construction,

FIG. 6 is a corss-sectional side elevation of yet another construction according to the invention,

FIG. 7 is a cross-sectional end elevation of another construction in which drain channel extenstions extend to the side walls of the hull,

FIG. 8 is a part plan view of the construction shown in FIG. 7,

FIG. 9 is a cross-sectional side elevation of another construction in which no drainage channels are provided,

FIG. 10 is a cross-sectional side elevation of a similar construction to FIG. 9 but provided with drainage channels,

FIG. 11 is a plan view of the construction shown in FIG. 10, and .1

FIG. 12 is a part plan view of a construction similar to that shown in FIGS. 10 and 11 but with drainage channel extensions extending to the side walls of the hull.

FIG. 13 is a cross-sectional side elevation view of an alternate construction in which drainage channels are connected to a vertically extending wall.

In the first arrangement to be described and as shown in the FIGS. 1 and 2 of the drawings the container for use in an opening in the boat hull comprises a bin 1 which extends in a plane which is inclined to the horizontal. Similarly the base 4 is also inclined to the horizontal at the same angle which is approximately 9. The upper edge'3 of the bin is provided with an outwardly projecting flange 5 which is bevelled at 6 where it joins the side walls 2 of the bin. The overall dimensions of the bin are arrangedso that it can carry an outboard motor of the folding type and other articles if required such as clothes.

The boat hull 7 which is to receive the bin is provided with an after-deck 8 which extends forwardly from the stern of the craft to a substantially vertically extending bulkhead 9 which forms the rearof the cockpit 10. Arranged in this after'deck 8 is a recess 11 the surface 12 of which is sunk below the level of the after-deck 8 and which is inclined to the deck and the horizontal so that where the recess emerges through the bulkhead 9it is deeper than at the point where it is adjacent the stern. Provided in this recess 11 is an opening 13 the dimensionsof which are closely related to the dimensions of the upper flange 3 of the bin 1. The edges 14 of the recess 11 immediately adjacent the opening 13 are raised and bevelled to conform with the outer surface of the upper end of the bin so that when it is pushed into the openingl3 it closely engages these surfaces. The marginal edges 14 are raised in relation to their immediately surrounding surfaces so that a channel 15 is produced between the raised seating and three of the outer edges 16 of the recess 11, the other edge of the recess opening through the bulkhead 9 into the cockpit.

In order to close the bin a hatch cover 17 is provided which has downwardly extending flange walls 18 which .vary in depth commensurate with the recess side walls,

the flange 19 adjacent the stern being of less depth than the flange 20 adjacent the cockpit and blocks 21 are provided beneath the cover 17 so that when it is placed in position on the bin 1 as shown in FIG. 1 its upper surface 22 is in line with the after-deck 8 but the blocks 21 engage the flange of the bin. The dimensions of the cover are such that its downwardly extending flange walls 18 extend outside the flange 14 on the bin 1 when the cover 17 is in position and the cover is connected to the hull by means of a moulded rubber retaining strop 23 at the front which hooks onto'a suitable catch 24 on the hull and a retaining clip 25 near the stern beneath whcih it is located, and a location clip 26 on the bulkhead.

With this arrangement therefore the hatch cover 17 not only closes the bin 1 but holds it in position in the hull and the downwardly extending flanges 18 cause any water on the afterdeck to flow downwardly into the channel 15 surrounding the seating mounting. As the channels are inclined the water will run down them and into the cockpit 10 from which it can easily be removed. f

The storage container provided by the invention can thus be used to carry any required articles, such as an outboard motor or it can be used as a wet-blocker for fish. The water-tight hatch cover 17 ensures that the container will remain reasonably dry due to the water running away down the water way channels. Moreover, the container can be removed from the boat andtaken away for'filling or emptying. With the container removed the hatch cover 17 can be replaced in position to seal the opening 13.

In another construction as shown in FIG. 3 the hatch cover 17 can be provided with a'latchinglug or lugs 27 on its stern end which engage beneath a projecting rim 28 at the rear end of the recess 11. The forward end of the cover is provided with a lock indicated at 29 so that when the cover is locked in place it cannot be removed and there are no screws or fittings on its upper surface which can be broken or removed to allow it to be lifted.

Again, the cover could be held in place merely by elastic shock cord 30 extending transversely over it and the clip 25, catch 24 and strop 23 dispensed with. Thus, with this arrangement the rear of the cover can be lifted over the edge,14 and then slid forward without removing the shock cord 30 or disturbing the steering tiller- (not shown) for the craft if it extends above the cover. The cover can therefore be opened to provide access whilst the craft is in motion. Alternatively the elastic shock cord can be arranged to extend fore and aft rather than transversely. In this case a single strand is sufficient and is stretched as the cover is moved forward to provide sufficient room to allow the users hand to be insrted into the container. For complete removal the cover is raised and moved transversely.

In this arrangement described above the boat hull is made from glass fibre so that the seating for the con tainer can be easily moulded to provide a good fit. If required the invention could of course be made from any other material as described.

It can thus be seen that according to this embodiment there has been provided in a deck for a boats hull an inclined recess which emerges through a bulkhead, said recess having opposite upwardly tapering side walls terminating in upper and lower ends, an upper end wall extending across the upper ends of said side walls, a lower end wall forming a surface interconnecting the lower ends of said side walls, so that surface emerging at said bulkhead'is located deeper than the level of said upper end wall, said recess being provided with an opening for the insertion of a bin, a bevelled perimetrical flange surrounding said opening and spaced from said side walls and said upper end wall, a channel formed between said perimetrical flange and said side and upper end walls, and a cover for said opening, said cover having a top wall with respective depending flange walls, the heights of said flange walls conforming to those of said tapering side walls and of said upper end wall, respectively, the front flange wall of said cover reaching said surface beyond said bevelled flange in closed condition of said cover, so that any liquid, water and the like will flow downwardly from said upper end wall in said channel and outside said perimetrical flange, while said cover flange walls clear said channel in said closed cover condition.

FIG. 4 shows another embodiment which is similar to that shown in FIGS. 1 and 2 but in this construction the recess 41 in the after-deck 42 of the boats hull is not inclined to the horizontal. Thus, the drainage channels 43 extend horizontally around the bevelled perimetrical flange 44 and emerge through a bulkhead 45 into the cock-pit 46 of the craft. In order to make theconstruction more clear in the drawing the bin has been omitted. In this construction a cover 47 has a top wall 48 and downwardly depending flange walls 49 which are of equal depth all around the cover and the lower ends of said side walls resting in said channels 43 when the cover is in position. Again, the means for holding the cover in position are not shown but can consist of shock cords as shown in FIG. 2 or a strop as shown in FIG. 1

With this construction the top wall of the cover 47 is substantially level with the deck 42 and when the cover is in the closed condition any water will flow downwardly from the upper end wall outside the side walls 49 into the channel 43 from which it will emerge into the cock-pit 46. As the side walls 49 of the cover extend to positions below the top surface of the flange 44 water will be prevented from entering the opening in the hull and will be led away down the channels.

FIG. 5 shows a construction somewhat similar to FIG. 4 and in this Figure the cover and the bin have both been omitted for clarity. A recess 51 is again provided in an after-deck 52 and a bevelled perimetrical flange 53 surrounds an opening and provides drainage channels 54. In this construction the recess 51 does not open into the cock-pit 55, this side of the recess being closed by a wall 56 which is an extension of a bulkhead 57 which defines one of the cock-pit walls. Drainage channel extensions 58 extend through the wall 56 so that water entering the channels 54 is again drained 'zontally they could be inclined in a similar manner to that shown in FIGS. 1 and 2 of the drawings. Again, it

close to an exterior wall of the hull, such as the transom.

of one of the sides of the hull then the drainage channels 58 could lead to this vertically extending wall and not to the cock-pit 55.

FIG. 6 shows another construction which is similar to 55 and has a recess 51 in the deck 62 of a boats hull. In this figure the bevelled perimetrical flange is shown by reference numeral 63 and the drainage channels by reference numeral 64. The drainage channels 63 have extensions 65 which pass to a vertical extending wall of the hull 66. In this construction it will be seen that the drainage channels 63 and extensions 65 are inclined to the horizontal and that the distance from the vertically extending walls 66, which may be the bulkhead, transom, or side walls of the hull is somewhat greater than that shown in FIG. 5.

With the arrangement shown in FIGS. 5 and 6 the cover (not shown) can be as shown in FIG. 4, that is resting in the drainage channels or blocks could be provided, as shown in FIG. 1 and 2 which rest on the upper surface of the bevelled perimetrical flange. Again, the construction is such that a container can be located in position in the opening which is surrounded by the bevelled flange.

FIGS. 7 and 8 show another construction according to the invention in which a recess 71 is provided in a deck 72. The recess 71 being surrounded by the deck and having the usual opening surrounded by a bevelled perimetrical flange 73. Drainage channels 74 surround all four sides of the bevelled flange 73 so that water can drain from the channels 74 through channel extension 75 which extend outwardly to the side walls 76 of the hull.

Once again the cover and container are omitted from FIG. 7 for the sake of clarity but the top wall of the cover would be substantially level with the after-deck 72 and the side walls will extend down so that they enter the channels 74. If desired the recess 71 could be inclined to the horizontal so that liquid in the channels 74 drained more easily into the extensions 75 in a somewhat similar manner to the liquid flow in the arrangement shown in FIGS. 1 and 2.

In FIG. 9 a constructionis shown in which no recess is provided in the after-deck 91, the opening 92 being at deck-level and surrounded by a perimetrical flange 93. In FIG. 9 a container 94 is shown in position in the opening, the flanges 95 of the container resting on the upper surface of the perimetrical flange 93 and the top wall 96 of a cover resting on the flanges 95. The side walls 97 of the cover extend downwardly below the level of the upper surface of the perimetrical flange 93 and the cover being held in position by means of shock cord 98. As the opening 92 is not provided in a recess in the deck the perimetrical flanges 93 stand proud of the deck and there are no drainage channels as such. Water splashing over the cover will however run down the side walls 97 and onto the deck 91 and away, the top wall 96 of the cover bearing on the flange 95 of the container 94 holding it in position and as the side walls extend downwardly below the level of the flange.95 water will not enter the container. When the container is removed the lower edges of the side walls 97 of the cover will rest on the deck 91 and again water will not enter the opening 92 because of the cover side walls. If desired the dimensions ofthe side walls and the perimetrical flange 95 could be such that the top wall of the cover rested on the upper surface of the flange 95 without the bottom of the side walls touching the deck 91. As shown in FIG. 9 the'top wall of the cover 96 is not I in line with the deck 91 and FIGS. 10, 11 and 12 show further constructions in which the top wall of the cover is raised in a similar manner. In FIG. the opening 101 is arranged in a shallow recess but the perimetrical flanges 102 are raised higher than the surface of the deck 103 so that when the cover 104 is in position it is raised in a similar manner to that shown in FIG. 9. In this construction shown in FIG. 10 the slight depression provides drainage channels 105 into which the side walls 106 of the cover extend when it is in the closed position. As is clearly shown in FIG. 11 the opening 101 is arranged in the middle of the deck and drainage channel extensions 107 extend rearwardly to the transom 108 of the boat so that water running from the side walls 106 passes into the channels 105 and away down the extensions 107. In the arrangement shown the drainage channels 105 and the extensions 107 are substantially horizontal but they could be inclined to pro- ..viqebe r. draina e f ea e this case the drainage channel and extensions 121 extend transversely to the hull and emerge in one of the hull side walls 122. If desired the extensions could be inclined to provide better water flow.

In FIGS. 8 and 11 the cockpit area of the boat hull is indicated by reference numeral 123.

If desired the extensions 107 in FIG. 11 could lead from the other opposite side of the opening so that the drainage channels 103 and extensions 107 drained into the cockpit 123.

0 FIG. 13 demonstrates a construction which can be meral 133. A drainage channel extension in the form of a curved tube 134 is provided which enters the drainage channel 133 through an opening 135 and extends to an opening 136 in the selected vertically extending wall 137. This construction is particularly advantageous where it is difficult to mould or otherwise form the drainage channel extension this being supplied by the separate tube 134.

As mentioned above the covers on all the above constructions can be held on by shock cord or any other suitable means and the boat can be safely left or sailed with the container in position or with it removed the downwardly extending side walls and raised perimetrical flange ensuring that water does not enter the opening or container if it is in position.
