  • Hoverspeed Engineering Workshops - Empty car-deck, being sorted for the evening (James Rowson).
  • Hoverspeed Engineering Workshops - Raised up on jacks to further than hover-height, allowing easy skirt access (James Rowson).
  • Hoverspeed Engineering Workshops - In-situ and still warm, the inner starboard engine, Engine No. 2 (James Rowson).
  • Hoverspeed Engineering Workshops - Propeller and fin in the paint shop, ready for fitting to a craft (James Rowson).
  • Hoverspeed Engineering Workshops - Rolls-Royce Proteus engine waiting in the shop, ready to be swapped out with an operating engine if needed (James Rowson).
  • Hoverspeed Engineering Workshops - Fin re-spraying in the paint shop (James Rowson).
  • Hoverspeed Engineering Workshops - Looking aft along the craft, partially raised up on jacks (James Rowson).
  • Hoverspeed Engineering Workshops - Inside the skirt of the SRN4 whilst on ramps (James Rowson).
  • Hoverspeed Engineering Workshops - The hydraulics control panel for the seven jack rams, to raise this 200+ tonne craft nearly 30 feet into the air (James Rowson).
  • Hoverspeed Engineering Workshops - One of the seven hydraulic rams keeping the SRN4 above our heads! (James Rowson).
