We are HE students studying a foundation degree in engineering. We have been assigned a project to design and build a hovercraft to carry 2 people and capable of acheiving a speed of up to 40mph. We have a limited budget to work with (500 initial budget to get started with the task of sourcing extra money as the project progresses) but we have a range of construction facilities available to us to offset some of the build costs, such as falmouth marine college to assist in constructing a GRP hull. As none of us have any experience of building hovercraft any advice on design and construction methods would be greatly appreciated! Thanks
