Design outlines for
4wings - Hovercraft.
A water craft shall have adequate flotation to hold itself and the passengers under all conditions a float. This positive flotation shall be in form of fixed foam ( Panels, injected or poured) .
The craft shall have on the bottom places to grab on / hold yourself to the craft for the purpose of rescue.
The cockpit on an open craft shall be self draining or equipped with a self draining system, allowing spray to run of without getting the craft ashore. It shall be under max. payload above sea level - outlets should have adequate diameter to drain the area. Safety gear should be easy accessible for all passengers.
On closed crafts should be at least one self draining outlet, for cases like broken windshield.
All crafts should be equipped with current safety and navigation equipment after US Coast Guard standard for small crafts. Navigation lights or at least 360 degree strobe light are built in the electrical system of the craft.
All structural parts should be sealed with resin against rot. Engine mounts should be connected to the main frame of the craft - as ducts should be laminated to give driver and passenger safety in case of fan blade rupture.
All used materials should reflect the technical standard of the day the craft is designed!
For special application we consult people with the qualifications in that field and implement their suggestions.
These are our standards and they don't qualify
for the harsh environment of racing - just for the cruising environment
where max. speed is not the question but save landing on an deserted place!
We are not building production line crafts - only one off's since everybody
has different needs and we want to have the possibility to adjust the craft
to your needs!
