MY New Toy

OK so it's not a boat but it's a lot of fun, 100 mile range, 25mpg and 40mph top speed! Powered by a Briggs and Stratton 1000cc V-twin 4 stroke (35bhp).

Had a play with a hovercraft once (on the river thames) feckin noisy! wasn't a popular addition to the middle thames. took some getting used to as well, especially 'on the road' as I tried to master the art in ferry lane shepperton before taking to the water. ferry lane was a bit narrow.

Took the hovercraft out on the Trent for the first time, great fun!
My mate had a go and was hooked so he's selling his boat and has bought a hovercraft!
