Rough Water, Choppy Seas, Big Waves

1. One of the main projects that Billy Lawson has spearheaded for Navatek has been the launch of the SeaBlade.
This boat and its high tech hull design are by far the best design for rough water available anywhere.
There are many special patents protecting the SeaBlade's hull design and its construction.
The boat was designed for choppy seas. It rides the best in heavy seas of any boat design anywhere.

3. As a general rule these ships, boats and hulls are the best and most high tech designs available anywhere.
They have special patented hull designs, some have aft lifting bodies, some have computer controlled foils,
others have fixed foils. In general they are simply amazing.
