A remotely-controllable, surface-referenced paravane for use in towing an object in a body of water at a controlled lateral offset from the pathway of the towing vessel is disclosed. The principal components of the paravane are a buoyant hull, a cambered hydrofoil shaped keel attached to the bottom of the hull and extending generally downwardly into the body of water, a remotely-controllable steering means, and a tow cable which connects the paravane to the towing vessel. Passage of the cambered hydrofoil shaped keel through the water generates a lateral...
A remotely-controllable paravane for use in towing an object in a body of water along a discrete pathway parallel to but laterally spaced from the pathway of the towing vessel, said paravane comprising: a buoyant hull having a longitudinal centerline; a keel attached to said buoyant hull and extending generally downwardly into said body of water, said keel having a pressure side, a reduced-pressure side, and a cambered hydrofoil shaped cross section, said cross section having a chord line, said keel being attached to said buoyant hull so that said chord ...
