Bucket'n'scarper had a good run the other day minus the bucket and a play with a barge .


not sure what the thing in the picture below the pair is ,prob a blur on the phone lense.
Like most of the other springers i have read about she too has a tendancy to dive ,but as she has a large rudder she is also very manouverable in reverse ,so rather than rebuild the wheelhouse i built a pair of knees on the back (stabilizer fins realy).


and with the lights on even better.

Oh and without the bucket, my next thing is to film her in action at stanilands regatta on the marina dry dock (yes there will be water in it so it should be called a wet dock). Its on this weekend fri,sat and sun if anyone fancys a visit ,we (GMBC) will have a stand there sat/sun .
for directions come off the M18 at thorne ,head to the town ,under the bridge and take the first right and follow the signs.
Fri is for the boaters ,sat/sun is for the fun.

Yep Grasshopper,the beer was yours "hic" and berry mice "hic" itwas too "hic".
Thanks Arrow , the barge is one of a pair i built for the club and ladened with coal they look ok ,trouble is they are not water tight and so the need for ballast after half an hour in the water is not recomended ,the problem is that they do need some baffles inside to stop the water sloshing around ,but thats another job on the list.
