    I'm impressed by how well it handles the choppy conditions going sideways like that.

    I was expecting the craft to rock back and forth more and throw up some spray, very good. !!!!
    In the beginning there was the Cube; I know where is came from and it has the power to create Hover life. But with great power comes great Fun.

    How many pubs did you hit on the way back.
    Btw, I received the steering cables to-day and will be installing tomorrow. Will keep you updated.

    Sorry David no pubs on this run. Maybe if you look closly you can see smoke from a potcheen still on the mountain. However the video ends on Derrymore beach which is the start point for a run with two quads heading further west. The trip has to cordinate pub opening times and tides, like a space shuttle launch we are fuelled up and waiting for a weather window. The furthest away pub of 4 is a 50 mins trip and involves a short section around a point which can be rough but the Scout should not have a problem now that Chris has carried out testing. Get that cable sorted and we will check it out. Its a bit like a Top Gear race, last time on the way out the quads won because there is a 6 mile beach section where they could outrun me on but I won on the way back as wind and tide favoured the hovercraft.

    Scout and John Proof out for trials next w/e at ALSSA. New centre seat and cables fitted to Scout and John's 503 rebuilt and sounds good. Will let you know the outcome.
    Slán,
