The Patriot was designed using a modified inverted V tunnel. It is a true compression style tunnel.
Advantage of this style tunnel include: Provides added flotation, lift and limits the amount of air that enters the tunnel, this limits the pad of the sponsons and gives the boat a smooth dry ride without compromising the shallow water capabilities.
