Are hovercrafts legal in Wisconsin?
Today's image is titled "Are hovercrafts legal in Wisconsin?" and was photographed by John Feith.
This photo shows Bregan Fuller testing his new hovercraft on the Yahara River bike path on the east side of Madison. Fuller, one of the founders of the Weary Traveler restaurant/bar, is working to make the craft seaworthy, Feith says. Hovercrafts are indeed legal in Wisconsin; there's also at least one company that makes them -- Weber Hovercrafts in Lafayette County. The story of how the company got started is recounted here.
