Airboat systems and methods for increasing engine efficiency while reducing torque and noise

Image Number 9 for United States Patent #5807149.

An airboat propelling system is provided wherein a propeller is rotated by a hollow driven shaft. A further embodiment is provided wherein two propellers are rotated in opposite directions by counter-rotating coaxial hollow driven shafts. Floating stiffener bearings positioned between the coaxial hollow driven shafts suppress flexion and protect the opposing surfaces of the shafts. These innovative techniques permit a minimization of size and weight, as well as a reduction in rotational speed of the propellers, maximizing efficiency and decreasing noise.
