Abstract: A cushioning apparatus provides an improved on a watercraft in order to improve the comfort of the ride, to reduce rider fatigue and to cushion impact forces experienced by the watercraft hull. The cushioning apparatus absorbs at least a portion of any impact force which the rider experienced from the hull, as well as provides a degree of movement between the rider and the hull in order to cushion such impact forces. The cushioning apparatus may also isolate the rider, at least to some degree, from vibrations experienced by the hull.
Abstract: The present invention describes a method and apparatus for monitoring and indicating engine oil deterioration during the period of the oil's useful life in an internal combustion engine. The system and method permits a determination of the rate of deterioration of the engine oil as a function of oil temperature or RPM of the engine and provides a continous output signal representing the remaining useful life of the oil which is provided to the driver when desired. The present invention therefore, estimates the time when the oil will reach an undesirable deterioration level during the course of operation of the engine rather than indicating, as many prior art systems, only when the oil reaches an undesirable level requiring an oil change.
