My First Springer/Pusher
« on: September 23, 2010, 08:27:46 AM »

Hi there everybody. Well I've started my first pusher tug. Always fancied one for a change, and a good size to carry about. I saw the hull at the Warrington show and had to have one. It's from Models By Design and for 20 a bargain I think, could've made one from ply but for 20 why bother?? Up to their usual excellent standards. I also purchased the 'pushers' from them and steerable kort assembly, cast in resin and also of excellent quality. Decided to go with a single kort for ease and want to keep it as light as possible.  Here are the pictures so far...

Just a thought but why not just look at all those aerosol cans of spray that you've already got and use some of them up?????  That way it will cost you less and free up some more space in the front kitchen, sorry I mean your work room :}  O0 {-)

I've just caught on.......Double Diamond and NO.6 are somehow related? That last comment could be regarded as quite 'wifely', you know stick the knife in, wait, wait, OK twist it now!

I might go for dazzle scheme. Would have to be careful not to lose it on the lake, it's only little!! Would certainly be different!! Does that mean I can enter it for Navy Days?? {-) {-)
