Have a rummage through what's for sale, with Sterling low against the Euro I'd  put in a bid   :)  except that I've spent all my money on a Prospector :)

Oh dear !    Hi tech and salt water don't seem to mix ?

Two hovercraft costing £10m have been withdrawn from service until further notice after suffering numerous faults.
The Island Flyer and Solent Flyer hovercraft began running between Southsea and Ryde last summer.
They have had ongoing technical issues since their launch with Island Flyer recently suffering an engine breakdown.
Hovertravel said its Island Express craft and Freedom 90 craft which are nearly 30 years old had been brought back into service to operate the route.

The firm said both the Island Flyer and Solent Flyer were expected to remain out of action until at least October.
Managing director Neil Chapman said the firm was working with its overseas supplier on a "development programme of the propellers of both these craft."

Hi all, concerning speed records: The main criteria is a measured course, 1 km long etc, then at least two runs over this course,  one in both directions , the average speed is your max.  This is to cancel out the wind factor. Things like the Bloodhound SSC , have to turn around and complete a second run within one hour. for them a wind of say 30km/h, is nothing for they could do 1000km/h etc !   For a small hovercraft, going much much slower, a return run within minutes would return a truer average. The true ground speed is what you want, not what your aircraft type speedo says. Francois Malan
