See through Springer
« on: July 20, 2008, 08:00:56 PM »

How's about this for a novel springer? Brian Bennet from the Bridlington Club brought his 'Plastic Pirate' to the lake today. It is built entirely from plastic..........well...........10mm acrylic sheet if truth be known so don't meddle with him! Guess who works for a plastics company with access to forming machinery? The hull is see through clear and the rest, well, see for yourself.

Have fun,
Ian.

I didn't build it, it was fellow member Brian Bennett who is employed by a small plastics fabrication firm so he has access to all their fancy machinery to bend plastic to strange shapes. He often brings boxes of offcuts to the club and there is a right old scramble for it I can tell you. He made me a half sphere with a large lip that I am (eventually, when I find time) going to fit to the bottom of a barge so I can use my cctv stuff to view the bottom of the lake. Might be useful when searching for fast electric props and tops too!

Cheers,

Ian.
