    Default Need Help ASAP

    I'm new to the hovercraft world and I've found a used one for sale, but don't know if the asking price is worth it. Please look at these pictures and give me your best estimate as to how much it is worth. Also if you have an idea of about how much it would cost to fix it, please let me know that as well.



    Thanks - please respond ASAP as I'm afraid another will buy it



    The only facts I know are: Steering isn't working, 2.5 litre GM .4 cylinder engine (not sure if working), marine water pump, steel block, fiberglass hull

    Right now (about 5.15PM your time) it is worth $3250 US because that is what somebody has bid for it on Ebay. In 2 hours time when the auction ends it could be worth more (or less if it is rubbish). Without knowing what it is, it is impossible to say how much it would cost to rebuild or even if it would work.



    If you are not joking, save your money and buy something sensible.

    Looks more like a movie prop than a hovercraft to me.

    Ok Katrina, If you are serious about getting into hovercrafting, whether racing or cruising, bide your time. Research what is available, talk to owners both in the US and Europe via this BB, the HCA website and alt.rec.hovercraft. Be certain of the type of craft you want to buy when the time comes and do not be tempted into buying at auction without sound advice and some knowledge of what you are purchasing. Try to contact other Hover-nuts in the Florida area. Ask questions on the US newsgroup and board above. They are a great bunch of guys and will be only too willing to give a helping hand.



    Good Luck and happy hovering.

    Wow. That monstrosity went for $4550.

    Only on eBay I guess. Someone is going to be VERY disappointed.

    Paul is right- there are many out there willing to share thier knowledge and experiences with you so you can succeed.

    Here is a link to the HCA Ambassador page. Click on your state to find someone nearest you.
