Title:
Winged oar or paddle
Kind Code:
A1


Abstract:
My invention is a handy oar or paddle, which is used by hand. The invention is used to help the boat move forward on the water while we are sitting in the boat. The invention's goal is to move forward faster with the boat using the oars or paddles, while not using extra force rowing the boat, and not changing anything on the boat. I can achieve this with the oar or paddle by not only rowing with the oar or paddle, but by pushing myself forwards. On the bottom of the blade, there is a slanted wing put up. On the bottom of the blade, above the wing, there is an opening. This is my invention. When we are moving forward with the boat, the wing on the bottom of the blade is higher on the side of the blade, which is facing the back of the boat. The wing is put up on the bottom of the blade slanted. This makes it possible when rowing the oar or paddle that the water control wing controls, pushes the oar or paddle in the water. This gives an upward force to the blade. For this we push the oar or paddle downwards, and use it to move forwards, while we lean on the oar. We row with the invention and we push ourselves forwards, this way we use the same amount of force, but moving forwards faster with the boat.

Claims:
1. 1-16. (canceled)

17. This invention oar or paddle which's blade's bottom splits towards the blade's side. This part of the blade creates a wing which controls the oar or paddle in the water level.

18. Compared to the handle of the oar or paddle, the wing is put up slanted on the blade. The wine is higher on the side of the blade which is facing the rear of the boat. Therefore, when we row the boat in the traditional way, culling the oar or paddle backwards, the wing steers the oar or paddle upwards towards the water level. We use this upwards moving force backwards so that in the water we are pushing and rowing ourselves forward with the boat.

19. When we push the oar or paddle upwards in the water, towards the boat's rear, with the help of the wing placed on the blade's bottom, and the force that we use leads to moving faster with the boat. This is why this oar or paddle differs from the traditional oars or paddles.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of Invention

This invention is a handy oar or paddle. This invention is used on water, and it helps you to move forward with the boat on water. Also known as if we were rowing in the boat. It can be used on boats, canoes, kayaks, and any objects that float on water. We hold the oar or paddle in our hands, and row it with our physical strength. During this process we stay in the boat. My goal is that the invention will make the boats faster, while we don't have to use as much physical strength as we used to when we were rowing the traditional oars or paddles. There is no change on the boat. Only the oar or paddle is the invention here. I thought of this invention because when I was younger my grandparents used to take me to a lake where I rowed a boat many times. There, there were a lot of flat boats. If the water was shallow, the oar or paddle's blade touched the bottom of the lake and the person had to push the oar or paddle so that the boat could move forward.

However, if the water was deep, and the oar or paddle's blade did not touch the bottom of the lake, the person had to row the oar or paddle. This is why I was thinking of a way to lean on the oar or paddle, when we are rowing in deep waters. This invention is the solution for this problem. This invention is new in a way that the oar or paddle's blade is different, its shape is unique. The oar or paddle's blade has a water control wing, which does not form a right angle with the side of the oar or paddle's blade. When the boat is moving forward, the oar or paddle is in my hands in a specific way. The oar or paddle's blade has a wing on the bottom. When we are moving forward with the boat, the wing on the bottom of the blade is higher on the side of the blade, which is facing the back of the boat. This inclined position of the wing results in that when the boat is moving forward, on the blade, the inclined wing steers the whole oar or paddle upwards. Where the water control wing and the blade meet, at that fixed point on the blade, there is a hole where the water goes through. This helps the movement of the stream that goes through the water control wing. When steering the oar or paddle upwards, an upwards moving force is being formed. This upwards moving force is used to push the oar or paddle backwards. Besides this we are rowing. My goal is that I'm using my physical strength to row the boat, while leaning on the oar or paddle, and also push ourselves with the oar or paddle in deep waters. This invention is made for this kind of situation. Using this invention, we will move forward faster, but at the same time, using about the same force as if we were to row a traditional oar or paddle.

2. Prior Art

When we are moving forward with the boat, we use our hand's physical power to change our position in the water. When rowing in the boat, the oar or paddle's blade pushes the water, which leads to moving forward with the boat. The water is fluid, not solid, and because of this the water is not as strong as the solid oar or paddle. The water runs off on the side of the oar or paddle that dips into the water. This is what the traditional oars or paddles can provide us. Comparing to the traditional oars or paddles, my invention is new in a way that the oar or paddle's exterior look is unique, and it increases the reflexive power on the oar or paddle. The handle of the oar or paddle is the same as the traditional oars or paddles. The oar or paddle's blade is the invention here. The traditional oars or paddles are not good for my goals because on those oars or paddles, the water partly runs off the oar or paddle, which leads to a loss of energy. At my invention, the stream is turned on to help in the rowing of the boat. My goal is to use less of our physical strength to row the boat, and at the same time achieve more by traveling further with the boat. My invention, the oar or paddle is used the same way as the traditional oars or paddles. We dip the oar or paddle the same way, pull it, lift it and dip it again the same way as if we were using a traditional oar or paddle. My invention is the blade, which dips into the water.

I am going to list some inventions, which are different designs of the oar or paddle's blade that tried to be more effective in rowing the boat:

My invention is different and unique from all the other inventions, and it is not complicated to use. When rowing the boat with my invention, the boat will be faster, and more efficient than the traditional oars or paddles. My invention can be used for boats (two pairs of oars or paddles), canoes and kayaks (one oar or paddle).

BACKGROUND OF INVENTION—OBJECTS AND ADVANTAGES

(a) to provide a better oar or paddle that is used to row the boat the same way as the traditional boats, but additionally, the boat will be faster than the traditional boats

(p) to provide that when the stream is flowing, the oar's exterior shape will provide us with better results, meaning that the boat will go forwards faster

(q) to provide that my invention's performance is better than the traditional oars or paddles

(r) to provide that when using the invention, we use the same amount of force as if we were to row the traditional oar or paddle, but when using my invention, the boat will be faster and it will travel further

(s) to provide that the oar or paddle is used by a person, at this point, the oar or paddle can be made out of anything that is solid

SUMMARY

This invention is a handy oar or paddle, which is used in a boat. It is used by rowing with our hands, while we are sitting in the boat. This invention's goal is to move forwards with the boat by rowing with our hands in a way that we don't use extra energy, and not changing anything on the boat. I can achieve this by not only rowing with the oars or paddles, but by pushing myself forwards. Also by putting a water control wing on the bottom of the oar or paddle's blade. This water control wing does not form a right angle with the blade's side.

When the boat moves forwards, on the side of the blade which is facing the back of the boat, the wing is higher (the closing angle is smaller), on the other side of the blade, the closing angle is bigger. This makes it possible that when rowing the boat, the water control wing pushes, steers the oar or paddle upwards. We use this upward pushing force as a support, when we row the boat. When using my invention to row the boat, we push ourselves forward, using the same amount of energy as if we were to row a traditional oar or paddle, and at the same time we move forward with the boat at a faster rate.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION—FIGS.

My invention is a handy oar or paddle, which is shown on FIG. 1 from a front side view. On this figure, the part of the oar or paddle's handle is seen, represented by number 1. We can hold this with one or two hands, it depends on how many oars or paddles we want to row the boat with. Number 2 shows the handy oar or paddle's part of the blade, which is shown from the front side view. The blade is bent in a traditional way, like the older versions of the oars or paddles. The oar or paddle's blade's wideness, its thickness, and material it is made out of is traditional. On the handy oar or paddle's blade section, there is a water control wing, which is shown by number 3. This steers the oar or paddle when rowing on its continuous, upwards moving path. This upwards moving movement results a force moving upwards. We use this to lean on the oar or paddle when we row the boat. When holding the oar or paddle's handle, the oar or paddle can be pushed down while we row in the boat. FIG. 2 shows the oar or paddle's rear side view. Here number 4 shows the water control wing, which is shown from a rear side view. FIG. 3 shows the oar or paddle from the right side view, where number 5 shows the blade's bottom side. Here it shows that the shape of the blade is bent in the traditional way. On FIGS. 4, 5, and 6, I did not mark any specific details. FIG. 7 shows the oar or paddle's right side in a 3 dimensional view. Here number 6 shows the opening, which is on the bottom of the blade. There is a hole on the oar or paddle's blade, above the water control wing so that the water could flow through it. Number 7 shows that the shape of the water control wing is bent, and rounded. This helps its movement in the water. Number 8 shows the part of the blade, which connects to the wing. Number 9 shows the part of the blade, which is bent like the traditional oars or paddles. Number 10 shows the side of the blade, which is also like the traditional blades. Number 11 shows the handle, which is on the top of the blade. On FIG. 8, I did not mark any details. FIG. 9 is show from the right side view, in 3 dimension, and it shows the shaded drawing. On this figure, number 12 shows the bent part of the blade, which is bent in a traditional way and it's also shaded. Number 13 shows the part where the blade and the wing is connected at a fixed point. On the top of the blade is the handle, which are connected to each other at a fixed point, seen at number 14. We hold and use the oar or paddle's handle in a traditional way, and also we push the oar or paddle down in the traditional way. This results in a faster movement.
