WATER SPRAY SYSTEM MAY SHATTER RECORDS Jet- Runs Boats Incredibly Fast AZUSA new water et engine, designed to "drive boats and ships at almost .in- credible speeds was disclosed loday by scientists at Aero- jet-General Corp. "We know we can increase the speed of hydroplanes by at least 75 per said Calvin Gongwer, head of Aerojet's antisubmarine war- fare division. "Theoretically there is no limit to the speed that can be reached by ves- sels of-any size, with proper hull design." THE REVOLUTIONARY device, called the hydrocket, has no propellers. Instead an impeller, something like a lawn sprinkler whirling at :errific speed, drives the boat forward by spraying water rtto the air behind it. A version has been ocean tested in a small boat. The company plans to install a high-speed hydrocket in a racing craft for time trials this summer. "We are confident it will break every speed'record for propeller driven wer said. Stan Sayer's Slo-Mo-Shun IV hydroplane reached 178 miles an hour in 1952. This has been topped only by Don aid Campbell's air-jet hydro- plane, clocked at 248 miles an hour in 1957. "Campbell's boat used an aircraft jet engine. We can do the same thing with conven- tional power plants requiring much much said. less less horsepower, and Gongwer Is geared to the engine's drive shaft. As it spins, the impel- er pumps water up from a scoop below the boat and !orces it through the nozzles n a whirling spray pattern. The boat can be steered by a rudder or by vanes which deflect the water jet. ]n tests, a 23-horseppwer gasoline engine has achieved a speed of 22 miles an hour. "Increasing the horsepower veloped to overcome water wni increase the Hydrocket- is expected to have military applications, but they are secret. A commercial mode! for boating enthusiasts is expected to be ready in two years. No estimate on cost is available.
