For anyone who is interested, yesterday made my first water voyage in the Sevtec Prospector I've been building. See Hover Diary and Videos at www.hovercruiser.org.uk.

BTW - I know one of the videos isn't working preoperly - it'll get fixed soon!

I'm well pleased with the craft http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_razz.gif Nothing broke or fell off during a four hour hover session and the sea handling exceeded my high expectations.

Well done John your hover looks great,a good achievment considering you only started to build it 4 months ago. http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_eek.gif

Fantastic! It looks brilliant, and I am, of course, jealous!

Mine is coming along - it's now been christened 'Platypus' because of the shape of the foredeck - it looks like a Platypus' bill! Most of the hull is done, just the foredeck and reardeck to finally fix in place, then I'm into doing the lift duct. It's incredibly stiff and I'm building a lot of confidence in the build technique.

I hope to see some more videos to spur me along!
