STORIES FROM THE ROAD


APR 06, 1995

RIDE OVER WATER

When I saw the small hovercraft skirting over the water in the Intracoatal Waterway east of Daytona Beach, FL, I had to stop. I wanted to stop and watch it. It was really neat. The hovercraft was around ten feet long, had two seats, and a skirt around two feet high. I waited around till the driver headed to shore.

It was really wild when the driver offered to take me out for a ride. His wife offered to watch my bike for me. After sinching up the life jacket, we headed out. The ride was really fantastic. We must have speeded over the water at least thirty miles per hour.

After about twenty-minutes, the driver offered to let me take over so we carefully switched places. This was really great. I had a great time for about ten minutes until the motor started to act up and we almost slowed down to a stop. My friend didn't know what had happened and we carefully switched places again.

We slowly made it to shore with the motor going at less than half its normal power. My new friend told me that I should keep playing because he didn't have an oar. When we got back to shore, we found out that one of the spark plug cables had come loose but we wouldn't have been able to fix it while we were on water.
