Our first ride on our homemade hovercraft!

Awhile back Wired Magazine had plans for a homemade hovercraft, and Daniel and I have been wanting to make it for some time. So with Men’s Night (Father/Son night) tonight at our friends the Vicks, we decided the time was right. A half-sheet of plywood, a heavy-duty shower curtain liner, a leaf blower, half a roll of duct tape (should have used the whole roll!), and two hours later, we had our hovercraft – http://youtu.be/yXlljd_KAtA.

Sorry, adults, there does seem to be a weight limit on my hovercraft, or I’d offer you a ride.
