    You can Google photos of the actual Canadian Coastguard hovercraft. Here is a video of the Hovercraft Museum shot in 2016 .https://youtu.be/9ERmbOsHZN4

    I do remember that it was impossible to see out of the windows because they were so salt encrusted. Constant spray cloud all round whilst at speed.
    When the winds before the rain, soon you may make sail again, but when the rain's before the wind, tops'l sheets and halyards mind

    Hi,
    You just posted this "One of the survivors is at the Hovercraft Museum at Lee on Solent. Really big when you get up close."
    But no photos?

    If it looks right it probably is.

    Rip stock. Members of the Model Hovercraft Association could get them from the person who made them to suit the scale plans but I don't think that is the case now.

    They look good, nice less common models. I did have a couple of cross channel trips when the real thing was running from Ramsgate to Calais, suppose that was mid seventies. Often fancied building a full size single seat hovercraft a few years ago, but like so many other things, never got round to it.

    Hi,
    Could you tell me what material you use to make the skirts ?
