I'm building a hovercraft based on the blueprints of a popular kit hovercraft, modified to look like a Delorean. I need funding to finish the project.

      i love that you got pulled over by the marine police, LOL! that makes getting pulled over by the street police pale in comparison. congratulations on all the progress you've made so far and thank you for keeping us all in the loop.

      I just saw this news announcement: "Nike's Plans For "Back To The Future" Self-Lacing Sneakers." You will need a pair of these if they start making them soon enough: [url]http://deadspin.com/5622851/nikes-plans-for-back-to-the-future-self+lacing-sneakers[/url]

      Hey Matt. Just gave my pledge an upgrade. When you make your goal we will have to get together and share a bag of chips. I can't remember the last time I had orange-stained fingers.

      Dude ... you're an inspiration! Got wind of your project via Matt Kowalski. I'll probably be out in SF in Nov. We'll have to connect

      correction. I decided I want this glorious moment captured in a 5x7 photo, so I switched to 8

      just donated 4 bucks. And trust me, I'm a poor post-grad art director, that could've been taco bell money. I believe in you MAN! make those photos good!

      I found a typo after the list of materials, "breaks" should be "brakes". Good luck with your project, looks great!

      Let's talk about an event! That could get you the $3k more you need.

      Assuming this works on water, it's great to see that the Hover DeLorean will make up for all the short comings of the Hoverboard!

      Gave you a few buck all the way from Belfast, Northern Ireland.... Well, it's the Delorean's ancestral home!
      Best of luck
