So, in the example in the last paragraphs, they plan in levitating the SEATS? LOL!
Quote: The successor to the Mark V is the Sea Fighter (formerly the X-Craft), a 262-foot, 1,000-ton, aluminum catamaran that travels up to 50 knots on the high seas. This led Cohen to "look at decoupling the human from the impact of the craft using this magnetic levitation, and that was sort of the genesis of the seats that you see today."
Cats are way smoother than monohulls. Regular cushioned seats should do fine.
>that Sea King looks like over-kill to me. Also, not very manuverable and more limited in regards to shallow waters compared to the Mark V<
But anyways, as far as reducing vibration (motors).. I guess that's a good idea, just not sure how feasible that would be.
