Marauder Hovercraft


Do any of you guys remember these?

I built mine in 1990 IIRC. It is designed for a .60 two stroke. I installed a Fox .74 Eagle.

I intend to restore it back to running sometime in the future.

Yes, it was pretty darn fast, especially on the groomed dirt of a baseball diamond which was my favorite spot to run it.

LOL, it kicked up a fair amount. You can still see the residual dust on the chassis from the last running many years ago. If you look close you can also see many nicks in the prop.

Hi all,
I recently found this footage of a Marauder Airboat, by Whiteman Industries, going through its paces on a somewhat dusty stretch of dirt and have posted the link to it in this thread, as suggest by my friend Tom, aka Kmot.

Note: If anybody out there reading this has a Marauder for sale, perhaps in your garage gathering dust, or in any condition, please PM me, I'd be very interested in hearing from you, especially if you are interested in shipping to New Zealand.
( I hope this request hasn't broken any message board rules - I'm sorry if it has, please feel free to delete it if it mr. moderator)

Enjoy! ("Aircleaner" springs to mind.........)

hovercraft marauder rc (1 min 47 sec)


Cheers

A search brought me here....hey Tom I walked in my door yesterday and found one of these along with a handful of other derelicts laying on my pooltable. This boat is in pieces....I dont think it was ever put together and may be unused. It looks fairly complete motor and all but no electronics. It is the only boat that came with a old roach encrusted manual (you should see the other boats) so I was able to figure out what it is. I will get up some pics and the rest of the story over on Dock Talk and maybe get some help identifiying the other ship wrecks.

Hi,

Can you take a picture of the underside?
