Re: Dover

Hovercrafts weren't all wine and roses: in 1985 the Princess Margaret hit the breakwater at the entrance to Dover Harbour in high winds, killing four people and injuring over 50 of the 370 passengers. The hovercraft captain lost his job...

UPI report - note that this says only two died, which I think is incorrect.

More photos of the Princess Margaret and some technical data.
