Visited the hovercraft museum at Lee-on-Solent at the weekend, it was bloody excellent! I'm very disappointed the SRN4 will never run again, it's hard to imagine something so huge (60 cars and 400+ people) could rise up 12 feet, then cruise along at 70mph. Competition from ferries and the loss of duty free sales finished them off.
The Princess Ann is the last survivor, the Princess Margaret was broken up earlier this year. Apparently some parts will be auctioned, I want some seats for the garage.
