Folding Boat 

Patent No. 6,367,405

Issued:April 9, 2002

Inventor:  Gregory Smiley, Greene, NY

A boat comprising a folding internal frame and a flexible outer skin. When not in use, the boat folds in half to a compact flat shape beneficial for shipment, storage and transport. The integrated tubular frame/floor pan is hinged to "pop up" or collapse quickly without the need for separate tools. The outer skin stays on the boat even when it transitions to the folded configuration. Latch mechanisms hold the frame rigid in the open position.
