    Default Hi Newbie here with a question

    I am led to believe that hovercrafts have been on the canal system in the uk, is it true and do you have any pics, i will place them on my website with your permissions.

    In general hovercraft aren't used on the UK canal system because the speed limit, typically 4 knots, is lower than the hump (or planing) speed of most craft. Travelling below hump speed means creating more wake, generating more spray and using more power so it isn't a particularly acceptable way to operate.

    I've used a couple on the Bridgwater to Taunton as part of the local waterways festival. Unfortunately it was about 12 years ago and I don't think there are any photos still around of it.
