    Default If its not broke, well lets fix it anyway...

    www.boatdesign.net/forums/boat-design/hovercr...

    Not sure I would have messed up this perfectly working craft like this. Maybe its better now, but I wouldn't think so.

    Spose I am the wrong man to comment... but anyone got something to say?
    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.

    It would appear that that thread has suddenly vanished.

    Its that guy with the Red Scatt who thinks a home made skirt would work better than the one it was designed for, the craft ends up looking a lot like a rubber duck than any kind of hover.

    And you'r building a Sevtec !!! LOL. Dont knock this guy, he put a huge amount of work into designing a better skirt to suit his needs and also did a lot of work on such things as noise reduction from the splitter plate. Philip

    He did indeed. Wonder what happened to the craft. His last video uploads on youtube were in 2008.

    Maybe he's seen the light and ordered a GP??

    Still miffed I didn't have the cash at the time for the GP you've now got Phil

    Think I've seen him on one of the 'merican sites. The GP, of course its for sale, just bring enough cash in any currency. Some of it is scattered around the shed at the moment for minor mods and an overall service. I'm modifing the cooling on the Briggs to extract approx 2.764 cubic metres per second more hot air from the engine bay( made that bit up but it sounds good). Philip
