    a couple of 8x4 sheets would be good, but at least 600mm wide, about 5 plus meters of it.

    since we are on the subject of where can I get..... where can I get plans for a scat hovercraft? Been searching hi and low. If not plans, does anyone know where I can get a used body? Would appreciate any help.

    As you probably know Scat was a commercially manufactured craft so you won't find any plans (in any case you would need the mold tooling to make one). Second hand craft do sometimes come up for sale in your country.

    Why do you particularly want a Scat - from what I've been told by owners, they weren't exactly a great hovercraft design (apparently they had a vicious plough-in problem)?

    After speaking with Kip (the designer) a few weeks back I think there are only 2 or 3 actual Scats in the UK. They were made for the American leisure market and that's where they stayed. The ones in the UK are with owners who probably do not want to part with them.

    You could get an Osprey 1, fundamentally the same craft but improved on the Scat.

    What are you planning to do with the craft? Race or Cruise? If cruising where do you plan to operate?

    NO, they didn't have a plough in problem any more than any other craft.
    Kip.

    Kip.
    No - of course they didn't Kip, it's just a malicious rumour spread around by ill-advised owners who should know better
