    I've got some rusty bolts and old fence panels laying in my garden.



    Anyone interested in the ebay listing can pay me 50 for the whole lot.

    I love the 2 stroke pipes that have been extended with slinky tubing. Bet the engine runs well. NOT.

    For reliability purposes, can you imagine any worse combination, than combining an alfa engine with a hovercraft?

    Nope.



    We did it waaaaaay back in 1981. In fact, we went out in it the day Charles & Diana married.



    Home built aluminium craft with a 1300cc Twin Cam Alfa engine.



    Didn't work terribly well in all honesty!

    This craft is a rare Osprey 4

    Back in the mid 80's we were contacted by Scat Hovercraft in Florida who urgently needed a 4 seater.

    The Craft was designed, tools and moulds built, first craft built, tested, craft and all moulds and parts for the next 5 craft air freighted out in 15 weeks.

    The original engine was the 503 installed in a floor mounted stream lined central pod. I thought it looked rather good.

    I was not happy with the aesthetics but as it turned out that was not important.

    The demo craft was used a few times out there.

    It was never put into production. I was amazed to hear one of the salesmen asking the works manager when the craft would be available and the answer was in 12 months!!

    We had all we needed to start immediate production.



    As a direct result of the introduction of the new model, Scat Hovercraft raised an additional 2 million dollars on the stock market!!!



    Before we shipped out the moulds we took 2 or 3 hulls out of the moulds and kept them in the UK.





    I believe Hovmart and Own Wiseman both had one.
