This surely sounds like a valuable tool for search and rescue especially, as well as maintainance/security of the dam. I hope it can be used for many years.

Certainly if those one or two lives saved are children, that will COMPLETELY justify the expenditure (yes, that is tongue in cheek). Such a tool may be necessary and useful, but it should have been bought and justified on budget, rather than from a government agency.

I'm sure Daggett County is loaded with folks who know how to repair hovercraft.

Prediction time: This thing will be out for repairs 300 days a year.
