Many might be interested to know that the origins of the hovercraft stem back to Christopher Cocherell. What a name.
There is one part of this that made me laugh and it was as soon as he said that vessels were slowed down by friction. It immediately made me think of being stuck behind hire boats between Ludham and Barton Broad.....perhaps a hovercar might be next on the list.
Water in the boat is the ruin of the boat, but water under the boat is its support
Little known and interesting nautical and marine topics.
