Hoverclub's 2000 National Cruise
Muscoda, WI

After the River Cruise failure, I was a little anxious about attending this cruise.  After all, this was the big one.  All of my hard work paid off, as I didn't have any mechanical failures.  Everything worked flawlessly.  The first day there, we went on a 75 mile round trip cruise up the river.  Everything went well until, on the return trip, I jumped a sandbar that ended up being about 2 ft high.  Yeah, Oops!  The Toy dove down into the water, sinking the deck about 2" below the surface.  As if that wasn't bad enough, the bottom of the duct was also submerged, causing the prop to chop through water.  When it was all said and done, I was left with a partially delaminated prop.  Of course, being the hardy li'l Toy that it is, I made the 25 miles back safe and sound.
 

I don't have too many pictures from this cruise because I was too busy having fun.  It was wonderful meeting other hover enthusiast and showing off my li'l Toy.  With any luck, my 19P will be up and running for the next big cruise.  Hope to see you there!  By the way, Dennis.  Even the darkness of the picture didn't tone down those shoes!
