The Canadian Coast Guard has operated hovercraft for many years. As a school kid on work placement at BHC, I saw one of their AP1-88s under construction. These have since been replaced but they were, in their turn, replacements for the original SR-N6s. They have an operating base alongside Vancouver International. Despite having been to YVR on a number of occasions, I had never been out to the Coast Guard base. On our way back from the city one weekend, I made a short diversion out to see their gate guard. It is behind the fencing but you can shoot it from an angle over the fencing. It took me back to my childhood riding these things from both Ryde and Cowes.
