Good Evening

Can anyone tell me , or show, how fingers are typically connected to the bag, for a finger and bag skirt.

I am building a 1/2 meter model hovercraft, and it would seem that the best skirt is the finger and bag arrangement. I am thinking about using a inner type for the bag, and f111 rip stop nylon for the fingers.

Is this a sensible arrangement?

If it is, can I glue the F111 to the inner Tube?

On a full size Hovercraft with this type of skirt how typically are the two parts joined? Are the fingers a sacrificial component? And easily detachable?

Many Thanks All

on a few loop and fingure skirts i have seen on full size craft, the fingure is attached with nylon nuts and bolts with nylon washers.
