How to Buy a Hovercraft

Hovercraft
Hovercraft are becoming more affordable for commercial, rescue and leisure applications, so what should you consider before buying a hovercraft?  


5/. Safety. Although hovercraft have generally a very safe record, in recent times, a couple of accidents have occurred due to poor construction. Dr Alastair Kenneth Senior, 40, died in New Zealand when the hovercraft he constructed was started without fan blade protection. 

Recently in Australia, a 60 year old man lost a finger due to an unguarded propeller. Some suppliers do not fit fan guards - can you imagine not guarding a factory apparatus while fans spin around at 2000 rpm or more - why would anyone design such a machine? One very good reason. By leaving a guard off a fan, more air can travel through the duct unrestricted, allowing better performance, less powerful cheaper engines, more speed and better fuel economy. Your decision ultimately, but I would strongly advocate having a spinning fan protected at the front and at the rear of a hovercraft duct. to protect you, your friends and family, and bystanders. Your fingers, your life, your choice.
