    i just wish lecturers would be a little more adventurous, give them something proper to build - like :

    desiged from scratch and built in one year



    and in their spare time helped to build this

    I have to agree with you Tony,whats the point of building something that ends up in the skip at the end of the project

    If it had worked properly we may have had a few more hover builders taking up the hobby

    Another odd coincidence - my father-in-law found this photo yesterday of what looks like the same SRN6 (and the same guy closing the door!) sitting on a ramp in Campbeltown on the Mull of Kintyre in September 1965.

    He didn't take a ride but I discovered today that one of my uncles had ridden on this very hovercraft from Largs to Millport in 1966.



    I would do nicely as a cruiser bus! Wouldn't have to bother with a tent! Only problem is it wouldn't conform to the Cruising Regulations (unguarded prop, etc).

    probably weighs over a tonne too, so would come under CAA/ shipping regs whoever currently has control of commercial hovercraft.
