Interesting drive this time of year, you leave home with ice on the lake on the north end and see green grass and leaves on the trees on the other.

Drifter-016 , glad you had a safe trip quite a journey to obtain your hovercraft. A couple questions for you why did the fire dept. get rid of the vehicle with so few hours of use and where do you plan to store the hovercraft . Looking forward to photos or video of you out enjoying the new toy.

They sold it due to age. It's 19 years old.
They wanted newer tech and their new one handles better because of it.
It was also $85,000!!!!!

I have portable garages for all of my goodies.
A new 12'X24' round top goes in next weekend for the new craft.  ;)

Drifter thank you for the reply ,the fire dept. took good care of the hovercraft looks great for a 19 year old vehicle. Any plans to build a garage at the cabin site to store all of your toys once you finish building the cabin.

Gonna be able to store the boat under the deck, quads and sleds will fit in the basement and the hovercraft will go in a 12'X24 portable garage like the one I'm puttin up this weekend. Maybe this one will just get moved out there and I'll put a new cover on it. ;)

Yup, I like to keep my toys in top shape.
Currently have my sled and it's trailer in a 10'X20', My boat in a pair of 10'X20' connected end to end for a 10'X40' and have my little 250cc skidoo and Zodiac in a 10'X10'.
12'X24' is going up @ the house this week. It will be replacing the 10'X20' and the sled and it's trailer will park in front of or behind the boat depending on season in the 10'X40' garage. Got an 8'X8' wooden shed with my augers, bikes, small OB motor, ice hut etc in it too.

You must be real popular with any neighbors. ;D :whistle: Please post a report after you have taken the hovercraft on it's maiden voyage.

I am. I live in an industrial area. I keep an eye on things so crooks don't mess with their stuff.  ^_^
Have tons of space for storing my toys too.  :)

I put up exactly the same temporary shelter at the new cabin site this winter to store building materials (used logs to hold it down), definitely "Canadian posh".  The new toy should be fun!

Dave It looks like you may need to put Tennessee Go Fasters on the back of your two vehicle seeing the tire splash on your new toy.

Knowing your are in Canada you probably do not know what they are. They are full length mud flaps all the way across the back of the vehicle. The Tennesseeians thought they made their vehicle look like it was going faster.

I think it fared quite nicely considering I towed it 2,500 miles.
The 15 miles to the lake should be much less messy.
