Burnham rescue hovercraft gets a technical makeover

The fibreglass bottom of Burnham's hovercraft was replacedPeople walking past Burnham's hovercraft station were given an unusual view of the rescue craft this week when it was perched on its side to allow crew and engineers to work on it.

The craft's fibreglass bottom has been replaced to make it even more resilient to the Bristol Channel's mud and sand.

A spokesman from BARB, the group which runs the hovercraft, said: "We have a constant ongoing programme of work underway to maintain the craft and ensure she remains as technically up-to-date as possible."
