Where is RED OKTOBER ?...
« on: August 24, 2008, 11:10:49 PM »

Red Ocktober was handed over to me by Norry today at the Epic show so it can add Wales to it's passport and it can attend the Mayhem bash at Llanberis

Of?

Its well known (in Springer circles) that the 'Swedish' navy shipyard (possibly china based) has had problems with its designs in the past.

As can be seen in the pic Arrow provided, navigation is a problem as the Springer shown seems to have run aground..
There are reports that certain parts fall off in cold water...  :o
'Doing an Arrow' has been entered in to the 'Springer Dictionary' for filling your Springer with water over the motor (not recommended for water-cooling by the way)... there are some thoughts however, that this is a new form of Semi-submersible...

So Red Oktober has found its 'family' heritage at last..

I have Scottish ancestry....

I hardly think the 'snatch' was a clandestine operation..... in a bright RED jacket!???  :P

Tut tut Boatmad, your lion is passant, the Scottish lion is rampant. Claim dis-allowed, besides what would you do with the whole Caledonian-MacBrayne fleet not to mention Norry`s tugs !!!!      Toes , I was miss-informed that the Redcoats came from the Lowlands and thought I could blend in nicely but..... :-\..well Glasgow is all Green or Blue for some reason :embarrassed:  Soccer I think.
