Two questions!

How fast was Matt going?
Why was Nathan going round in circles at the brewery?

 ;)
Probably around 60mph or so based on the 25mph the Prospector was at.  No Idea what Nathan was doing- maybe the bloke in the back seat knows  ;)


The UH18 was a very fast and efficient hovercraft - it would cruise along at 40mph at half throttle.  Limited rough water capability though - around 18" chop was the safe limit (at low speed).  I "clocked" it (GPS) at 72mph a couple of times (Loch Lomond) - craft was perfectly OK if a bit floaty.  A swan decided to do a running take off alongside my path at the time and, as I couldn't turn or stop quickly I decided that maybe going that fast was a bit dodgy!

Kielder Water way back in the day (filmed on a VHS camera!!).

How fast was Matt going was indeed my first question-- The UH certainly had a BIG turn of speed.
I "think" John JUST still had the UH when first WE met. He once told me what HE managed but I've managed to forget the answer---
I don't think I was on the scene here tho---
I "existed" but not in any real way tho---
Its good to look back when our present is so uncertain
