Craftsmanship & Quality of the Hov Pod

The reasons why Hov Pod’s aredesigned as they are to be safe and durable are covered in our buyers guide, but it doesn’t happen byaccident so lets take a look behind the craft and how it operates to see the process from design & testingthrough to packing and shipping, how we manufacture the Hov Pod to make it the best leisure hovercraftavailable.
Design & Testing
Parts are designed using 3D Computer Aided Design(CAD) to ensure tight tolerances. This software alsogenerates the drawings or data file from which partsare manufactured or directly machined. The use ofdrawings or data files ensures repeatability andcontrol of components during the manufacturingstages.The 3D software allowed a complete analysis of thedesign & assembly of the craft and the interactioncomponents.Design should consider marine safety and hovercraftshould be designed to withstand salt-waterconditions. Flooded buoyancy tests were conductedto establish loading of the Hov Pod without sinking.Many hovercraft manufacturers ignore this or scrimpthis aspect during the design stage hoping all will bewell. The polyethylene foam core of the Hov Pod hullensures the Hov Pod can float with far greaterpayload than possible to seat with a high factor ofsafety.
