Welcome To myHovercraft

I have ever since I was very small wanted to build my very own Hovercraft. The first introduction I had was down on the seafront at Southsea, Hampshire watching the boys arrive and then fall off the ramp and depart back over to the Island giving them a little wave to see them on their travels, even now I still wave them off, a truly magical time. The idea to build came when I saw a little scarab hovercraft which was racing alongside for some promotional pictures at that moment realised I wanted one, nearly 20 years I am ready to start doing just that, building and racing one, hopefully a fast one ! I have done all the hard work in construction the plans and these are ready for assembly.

I searched the internet and have had several problems in finding suitable plans to build my hovercraft from, as a result I have decided to design my own and build with fiberglass to make it lighter, I have never worked with fiberglass or engines before so this will be an experience. Most likely it will to as much fun to design and build my hovercraft as it is to race the hovercraft, Well I am about to find out !
