If you want to sell alcohol in England, you need a license. But the Licensing Act 2003 has some unusual exceptions. • Thanks to Marc and the team from the Axceler-8 Hovercraft Centre: • Behind the scenes:

As ever, thanks to everyone who helped out with this! In particular Marc, whose hovercraft will have had a faint smell of beer about it for a day or two afterwards...

I was shocked when the price of the Gin and Tonic was just £1.50 😮 like oh the many benefits of Hovercraft liquor sales aside from no need for a licence id reduced rent and taxes.

Eh, this whole alcohol "licensing" thing is just a scam for the gov't to get its fingers into one more pie anyway. Good on you, Tom.

A mulled wine Christmas hovercraft bar sounds nice. But sadly, after checking the hovercraft in the garage, I noticed that it it still full of eels.

So if it's meant to be used for commercial travel, why wouldn't the law just specify "passengers" and not "from a vehicle on a journey"

So could you stop let someone on board sell them what ever they want to drink, while in motion and drop them off right after?

How about a train car that moves 10 meters per hour on a 100m track? You could actually get in and order, sit down at the bar.

do you have to move forward? doesn't a hovercraft already use momentum to stay up so technically its already moving so shouldn't that be enough?

Wait, what if someone made a bar in a traincart, and say a 100m long track, just going back and fourth at a ridiculously low speed, so it reaches each end in an hr or so. then they could sell alcohol without a licence?

I think you're videos would be way more popular if they played to the algorithm better. I've been watching for years, and subscribed yet I never get anything from you recommended. It's frustrating having to search the channel everytime I want to check if there's something new. Does anyone else get this? Maybe subject for a video?
