In the “M-K” №4 for the year 1989 was published an article devoted to the ski-Vodochody… I Read it and wished I still had not written to the editor, not shared with the readers of “M-K” for its development.
Of course, the idea of the ski-floats is not new. But enthusiasts of this “vehicle” they are constantly repeating the mistakes of predecessors. Therefore, almost all Vodochody seem more funny than enticing for samodelkina. About any “runs” on these skis, however. And the thing is that their designers did not think through what they are going to move, standing on these floats. And the major role they, as a rule, give the sticks with floats that are trying to push off from water. And it will agree, not very convenient. So before you start designing these skis, try purely theoretically to understand how they can move.
