Broken Hovercraft

One more for the graveyard of childhood, a Matchbox hovercraft from the 1970s, probably purchased in Thompson, Manitoba. Kind of amazing the stickers are still in place. I don't remember what might have run along the top; you can still see the holes where some kind of plastic detail was once anchored.

It seems that boat went through some rough seas! My brother had one if I recall correctly. Yours is missing the red propeller that was mounted on the roof.
