Hovercraft Hobby....
« on: June 20, 2011, 14:27:20 »

I build hovercrafts in my spare time when I can. I've posted some videos on Youtube....

Here are some links to 2 of the hovercrafts I've built from scratch. I'm currently designing a 21ft craft that I will build from composite panels. With the US economy in the tank it will be a while before I can start my next craft.

Thanks for looking

Hi Marc,

Thank you for the kind words about the hovercraft...
Both hovercraft were built from scratch. There was lots of searching and running around to get the materials..... an um... I can't leave out the 2 girlfriends I went through to finish the last one.... ;-)

Yeah, really nice!

Especially I like the 17 ft craft!

As I look back on the video of the "Wizard" I regret very much, selling that craft. A guy from Maine purchased it (He drove from Main to Texas and back to pick it up sight unseen, just Internet videos) and he sold it a couple of years ago to a guy from Vancouver. Dang.... that trailer has alot of miles on it.
It's somewhere near Vancouver right now.

The "Wizard" was something else....

I know this is a massive bump but... I just had to, it's me  ::)

The exact UH26 in the first video is one of my favourite hovercraft designs, I love the 'fighter jet' style cockpit and the general arrangement of the craft.

It's great to know that, if not any more, at some point the owner was on here. Wish I was around at the time!
