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? 

7/. Skirt design and materials. Some hovercraft have a one-piece skirt, some hovercraft have segmented skirts, which limit damage to a single section, minimizing replacement costs. Cheaper hovercraft can cost more in operating costs, if the skirts are made from sub standard materials. Don’t allow the suppliers to claw back their profits through consumable skirt replacement costs, because apart from the skirt purchase price, you also need to consider shipping or courier costs. Steer clear of neoprene coated nylon - this material degrades through exposure to sunlight (UV). Also be wary of Hypalon, this tears too easily. Conduct a rip test - cut a sample of the skirt material to see how durable it is, try to tear a section. I recommend polyurethane / nylon weave skirts.
