Could this be a 1:1 scale Springer?  O0.  Seen in Padstow harbour on a recent visit to Cornwall.

Yes, perfect for a scale Springer as long as it has the  (official) Springer breeze-block hull O0  BTW why is there two Plimsol marks on the hull ?

Have a look at posts 11, 12 + 13...  O0

That would make a nice 'scale' Springer though, especially with the working crane.
