A guy made a flying hovercraft. I would think at that point you might as well put a higher thrust combo and just make it an all out airplane. Flying in ground effect seems kinda risky.

They are actually pretty safe. It was designed by Bob Wendt who owns Universal Hovercraft. Bob has been building and designing hovercraft for years and the WIG (wing-in-ground effect) concept has been around for years also. The only real danger is banking to far in a turn and having one of the wingtips hit the water wrong and digging in. Although it has happened, it was a bit of an extreme maneuver.
