Hovercraft have been used for many purposes over the years but none quite as unusual as this..
This picture was taken during a demonstration at Wensum Valley Hotels. The demonstartion was held on the golf course and the Flying Fish Marlin II is one of very few vehicles that could have spun around the greens without causing any damage at all to the perfectly kept grass.
After a brief training session Mr Basil Todd easily learned to master the controls of the Marlin II. The hovercraft really turned the heads of the golfers who were on the course that afternoon as we glided from green to lake to fairway and back again.
