The Folding Rubber boat
The Folding Rubber boat

There are many flood disasters in the world when the rainy season comes. So large quantities of ships are demanded for the relief effort,the transportation of traditional heavy rubber boats are inconvenient, while light and simple rubber boats are easily to be pricked by sharp objects under the water which is a security risk. The folding rubber boat takes little space in folding state, and could be transported after stacked so that could be released to the disaster area in large quantities. And the bottom guard plate can protect the boat from pricking by sharp objects which is much safer,makes the rescue activities easier.
