Hi All,

There was an Egrete with working raising wheel house for sale at Skipsea week auction.

Now I have finally managed to get my computer to down load a copy of the plan, I think that I will be starting to build one tomorrow. Springer that is. I'm thinking of using a 'petrol can' style top, and calling it a Jerry Springer.

Actually I think it will be a 'Club 500' style springer.

     Correct, that is why I mentioned it, very English livery. You`ll have to get in a stock of Irn Bru when the MacSpringers invade Englishland ::)

Hi all,

well here she is, painted and ready to be wired up ready for sailing (and yes I fixed the leak, although I went a bit mad, I used silicon bath sealer as I really wanted a belt and braces solution).  I need to mount the aerial though, I have a plain aerial handy but it would detract from the model I think.  Do you think I could use a pair of hand rails as aerials?  I think really I should use the plain aerial (although it will definitely be turned into a circle at the top,I'm not going to poke out my eyes after all this work  :)).

I found a bit of lead to weigh the bows down and it seems to be ok now.

nah its going to have some put on later (which means that I'll never get round to it!  ;)), at the moment the main target is getting it running.  I'm going to do some push knees based around a Bantam (seeing as its a rip off of one already).

Here are some pictures of my efforts.

Whether I'll get it finished in time is anyones guess.  I am building with plywood and apart from slicing the top of my thumb, I'm getting on like a house on fire.

It's going so well, I thought I might as well make two.   :D


Cheers...Ken

I finally tried out the springer in some proper water, not the test tank (paddling pool). In the tank the front lifted quite dramatically and I thought mine might not submarine too badly, WRONG!!. At top speed I could almost hear the klaxon going off and the command "dive dive dive" but with all the water going over the deck did not get any inside, phew. :)

Should be fun over the weekend, off to charge the batteries

10.45am on Saturday Mayhem Madness Underway, deep sigh. They`ll be on the water by now. Weather forecast for Sunday is poor, wet`n windy. Shame. Cant wait for pics. Ah well I`ll be wataching the F1 Grand Prix from Monaco (practise today and race tomorrow)     Painting alternate top for Sprinkler 1, name  is "Maid o`Girders", roughly a North Sea oil support vessel, lots of orange and a touch of blue. Ring a bell Ching? Computer still not right so no pics yet,besides it is a trade secret.
