- n. A barge that uses hovercraft technology, suitable for transporting goods over swampy surfaces.
Former mine owner Redfern Corp. went bankrupt in March of 2009, after its plans to build an experimental hoverbarge to cart ore down the river met resistance from Juneau's commercial fishermen and other river users.
Meetings about the hoverbarge it was building to operate on the river were attended by hundreds.
