Maybe they are just little guys trying to make a living as best they can.

 Griffon Ian and John are in a different league to the manufacturers of small cruising hovercraft in the uk as they are prepared to do lots of development work before a machine is released for sale to the public unlike most of the people involved making machines here ...build it and flog it and let the punter find out what the bad bits are is the usual from what i have seen over the last 14 years of taking a interest in the sport ..

Amazing machine put together by great guys I wish them well.
As for the totally unrelated topic of hovercraft development
 Griffon, Ian, John and others should be ashamed of themselves.

What gives with the negativity???  ???

Could have been both as it ran under a GRP built in tank that was falling apart.
External blisters you could push a screwdriver straight through with little effort.
2 craft with desperately failing GRP tanks.

That doesnt look like water damage to me ... Looks like its been in a solvent? Could it have been sitting in petrol?

MY John, thats priceless! I understand, not all of the content, but i DO understand that my IT knowledge needs work----
Ive just gone over to Apple which does not seem to need resizing, as it loads up anyway.
KIP thanks for that MIME girl you tube thing. They are gorgeous and clearly had a load of fun making that. MOST entertaining, especially the "nude" bit------- :o

4Mbytes (4096K) is the file upload limit on the server.    Images are resized downward to 1024x768px after upload anyway so, to save yourself some time, just resize before uploading or attaching.  For Windows use Paint (in the Start menu) to open the image on your computer, resize and save - takes about 3 seconds.

It's always better to upload images to the Gallery rather than as an attachment to a post as it's then much easier to find the image later.  You can add a link (or links) to a Gallery image in your post just by copying the "Direct Link" URL that shows below the image when you view it in the Gallery.
