    Talking Re: names for your hovercraft

    We've had four of the things:

    Woodstock - not named by me. Alan Bliault's old craft.

    Woodspring - because it followed on and we lived in the ( abolished) district of Woodspring.

    'Severn Surveyor' - it was an ex surveying craft ... with 'SURVEYING' plastered down the sides. Stopped a lot of 'what are you doing there ' questions.

    Britannia - nice patriotic name for a British invention - and actually named after the P&A Campbell SRN5 (?) Britannia - long story but all to do with Bristol Channel and paddle steamers. My delusions of grandeur are not that great - yet :-)

    Hoveranne (1967) - linking our surname with a famous West End Musical character

    Hoveranne2 (1969) - lacked inspiration

    Eureka (1972) - the first to go over hump so Archimedes seemed appropriate

    Spirit of Snodland (1977) -a homage to Charles Lindberg from my home village. The initials said it all

    My last craft was called Firefly which seemed quite apt when it nearly caught fire on the Rhone Raid.
