Visited Berwick to test newly fitted skirt - cruising up river and on the sea
A new hovercraft club has set up in the UK specifically to support cruising hovercraft. The web site can be found at http://www.hoverclub.org.uk
Barry Palmer ("Mr Sevtec") retired earlier this year - the full range of Sevtec hovercraft plans are now available from Amphibious Marine. They sell kits and parts also but all parts to build a Sev (except Props) can be sourced in the UK and Europe (look at the parts supplier pages for metric equivalnets on this site). Barry's web site is now hosted HERE on the hovercruiser site - it contains a lot of interesting historical and design information on hovercraft (and hang gliding, etc).
Had a good days hovering yesterday with Steve starting with a visit to the Queen (the QE2 that is - not the "real" queen ). The QE2 was on it's very last visit to its' "birthplace" (it was built on the Clyde in 1967) and berthed at the Ocean Terminal in Greenock. See 2008 diary and Videos & Pics for full details

This year the event was held on Loch Fyne in Argyll - a 40 mile long sea Loch famous for oysters, dolphins, basking sharks, spectacular scenery, etc.
