Make the hovercraft. You could use it during your brew day to transport you around. Less walking, more drinking!

If you have an exhaust port on the thing, or can reverse the motor wiring, you can use the forced air to prevent boil overs.

You'll need to rig the hose to blow on the surface of the wort. You'll only need this in the first 10-20 minutes of a boil though.
