Good , very Brit.  Now a narrowboat with roses and castles or a decorated barge, buttie?  Maybe a weed-machine  with a childs toy crane, Hi-Ab or similar ? Any more in construction?

Me and dad started building our hulls 2 days ago. We have installed the electrics, I did mine on my own and I am making the top today.

Since arrow5 mentioned these tugs they have certainly taken off. It looks like there will be quite a few at the Mayhem weekend. After that Martin will have to organise a Springer Tug competition ;D ;D ;D.

Springer Olympics.

Team Games:
Football - 15 Minute matches
Tug of war - Even teams of 2 or more.
Relay race - Around a short course.


Individual Games:
Fetch the stick - against the clock
Show jumping / steering comptition - against the clock
Penalty shootout - one on one.
Darts - like straightline running but you can't use your rudder.
Great egg race - balance an egg / ball around a course on a shallow plate - against the clock!



...... Discuss!  ;D

sounds pretty good martin, should keep us all amused for a few hours, how about the relay race pushing a football around a course, how about a steering course blindfolded following a team mates directions

Tigger and Templeton attended their first regatta today...

Tigger scored the winning goal in the football after running the full length of the pitch..

Mrs Toes captaining Templeton came a respectable 4th in the under 24" navigation class...

..oh... and Tigger came FIRST in the under 24" navigation class.  ;D

Keep it up Hannah!... Sounds like you are doing well!...
Mrs Toes loves Captaining Templeton, I'm sure you will enjoy your Springer.

Mr Forum Administrator... YES!, those sound like a fun set of 'games' for Springers to play..

Blimey Hannah 4 Springers, are you and your dad going into business selling these tugs. ;) ;)
Can not wait to see your designs, and the designs of everyone.
Martin that looks like an interesting set of challenges, will you have an easy competition for us newbies along the line of trying not to sink anyone else or ramming the bank flat out ;D ;D

               ...Hi Guys...

Should I start thinking about a Springer Course for our Tug-In at Largs in Scotland on June 17th...

Maybe we could have a Scottish Special  McSpringer Highland Games...

Tossing The Caber...Throwing The Hammer...Haggis Hurling...Highland Dancing...Bagpipe Bursting...

I am going to a meeting at Largs tomorrow night & I will pass on a set of Springer Plans to the guys down there to get building....

I am going to build one myself when I come home from my holidays...

...Och Aye Thi Noo...Norry...

Hi, Norry

Good idea having springers at the tug-in. Good news on my springer "The Shelf" i took it to Balne again on sunday for the scale steering, SECOND PLACE!! in small boats ;D.
So... England vs Scotland football match?
By the way have you any information on the July 29th Scottish federation do?

Cheers, Steve j ;D

Hi Arrow 5,

Finally figured out a top for mine, going for either an RNLI Tyne Class superstructure or a US Coastguard SAR superstructure. Either way it will be Search and Rescue. Love the photo of the Invincible on the RC Groups forum. Is that you hitching a lift?

Good choices Clive, USCG very colourful (colorful !) but I`d go for the RNLI lifeboat at first just to show the Brit varation on the theme. USCG for your alternate top or next Springer ?  Re RO5, dont know which pic you mean on RCGroups but yes it is a manned(me) model at 31ft.  More on msn.groups.com/MannedModelShips  I`ll try to put pic up here later.

Alternate Fire-boat/ Air Sea Rescue top for MacSpringer. Pic of RO5 with tugs at Ellesmere port and tug pilot. OOPs to many pixels on the Fireboat picture, I`ll try again.

Yep that is moi , with suitable vintage lifejacket ! The outboard handle/tiller is between my knees and I steer her with "bend-ze-knees" skiing action.  When in clear water I can sit down with deck at eye level. Somebody suggested a Sea King hat to hide the top of my head ! Taken at Portsoy Wooden Boat Show a few years ago. Good event, full-size stuff and a few models,seafood, music, fishing boat race and a great harbour-side pub .
