A method for creating a parametric planing hull model is disclosed. In one embodiment, dimensions of a plurality of hull sections, including two non-adjacent hull sections, are received from a user. Dimensions of at least one hull section between the two non-adjacent hull sections are interpolated. Curves of the hull are generated based on the dimensions of the plurality of hull sections received from the user and the interpolated dimensions of the at least one hull section between the two non-adjacent hull sections. Surfaces of the hull are created based on the generated curves, and a planing hull model is generated from the created surfaces and is displayed.

In one implementation, a mobile device is integrated with a bowling center automatic scoring system. For example, a server receives a lane control command originating with the mobile device and determines or identifies a bowling lane that is associated with the mobile device. A response message or signal, which includes data indicative of the bowling lane and the lane control command to, is sent to the automatic scoring system. The automatic scoring system executes the lane control command.

A nickel containing hypereutectic aluminum-silicon sand cast alloy is disclosed herein containing 18-20% by weight silicon, 0.3-1.2% by weight magnesium, 3.0-6.0% by weight nickel, 0.6% by weight maximum iron, 0.4% by weight maximum copper, 0.6% by weight maximum manganese, 0.1% maximum zinc and balance aluminum. The alloy may have a more narrow nickel content of 4.5%-6.0% by weight, and up to 2% by weight cobalt. The alloy may be substantially free from iron, copper and manganese. The alloy of the present invention is preferably sand cast, and most preferably lost foam cast with a pressure of 10 ATM to produce engine parts with high thermal properties that are easily machined.

A marine transmission located within drive housing includes a torque transmitting year set and a clutch mechanism. The torque transmitting gear set includes top and bottom bevel gears and opposing side idler bevel gears mounted to a pinion shaft. The pinion shaft is mounted on a carrier and the clutch mechanism engages the carrier to rotate with the input shaft to drive the output shaft in the forward direction and engages the carrier to a reaction plate fixed to the drive housing to drive the output shaft in the reverse direction.

A hull form design which incorporates bi-lateral semi-sponsons disposed on either side of a non-stepped V-shaped center hull section. The semi-sponsons extend the entire length of the hull form and comprise protrusions extending away from the center section. The semi-sponsons are delimited by longitudinal steps extending below the hull bottom an equal distance from the centerline on opposite sides of the hull. This design is a hybrid of conventional V hulls and catamarans and improves the roll and turn initiation time of convention monohull designs.
