  • Patent number: 11370508
    Abstract: A foil displacement system includes one or more foils that can be deployed and stowed. When deployed, each foil can exert downforce or uplift depending on its orientation. For example, each foil may be positioned to have an angle of attack that creates a downward force effectively transmitted to the hull to pull the hull deeper within the water to, for example, create a larger wake. Use of the foil displacement system can enhance or replace the use of a ballast tank system, can be integrated into a new boat or retrofitted to existing boats, can be electronically or manually positioned, can enhance activities such as wake surfing, wake boarding, water skiing or other similar or related water sports.

  • Publication number: 20220143736
    Abstract: A method for making a cold plate includes the steps of positioning a finstock structure in a cavity of a substrate; and applying a cover to the finstock structure and substrate, wherein the applying step comprises ultrasonically additive manufacturing the cover to the substrate and the finstock structure, whereby the cover joins with the substrate and the finstock structure. The resulting cold plate assembly includes a substrate having a cavity, a finstock structure within the cavity, and a cover closing the finstock structure within the cavity, the cover being integrally joined to the substrate and to the finstock structure.

  • Patent number: 10238236
    Abstract: An apparatus for converting a barbecue into a pizza cooking oven includes an open door frame and vertical side panels pivotally attached to the vertical side posts of the open door frame. The side panels can be pivotally adjusted on the open door frame to extend rearward of the open door frame at different pivot positions. When the side panels are extended rearward of the open door frame, the bottom edges of the side panels provide a support base for setting the apparatus onto the top rim of a bottom bowl of a barbecue and the top edges of the side panels support a cover of a barbecue in an elevated position above the bottom bowl of the barbecue. The elevation of the cover creates an expanded cooking chamber above the bottom bowl of the barbecue and the open door frame provides access to the expanded cooking chamber.
