To wide to tow so you need your own private slip!

Nah - I'm sure I've seen John & Rob tow them with a LandRover. It'll be a snip for any local rescue organisation.

How wide is the craft when off hover? You can legally tow approx 10 foot wide as you are allowed 12" overhang either side of a trailer which can be upto 2.55 mtrs wide.

AFAIK when the side-bodies are deflated the width is under 2.5 metres. I have a brochure somewhere detailing the spec.

I'm seriously tempted......! Its only at 3k, and a six year old Snapper sold on ebay yesterday for 5500 - so its curently something of a bargain!

The solid trailer is 14ft wide and not street legal.
The craft is 15 years old

Good to hear it's gone to such a worthwhile home. If you hear any news of it's use in the future please let us know - I'd very much like to hear more about the project.
