The first, called a "sketch design", as said in the description, shows a way to
reduce the drag of a light aircraft by shaping the fuselage in an appropriate
way.
The other one is a patent for an inflatable and retractable float, that is inflated
by a system, that uses an air pressuer tank, that gets filled up via the prop
stream.
