name my springer
« on: August 05, 2008, 04:58:22 pm »

It's been a while since Norry sent me a couple of springers down to Yorkshire ,and while one went to Hull i kept the other one in the shed for myself {-) .
Having followed the topics on here i thought it's about time i made a start and after emptying the hull of whatever had fallen off the bench and into it i started with the stand .the next thing was during the build was what type of structure and having seen some of the other builds on here i ended up with this.

sorry if i have breached any copywrite  :embarrassed: .
So with this in mind i came up with this , still needs a few more jobs doing ,railings ,mooring posts,etc .But it needs a name ,so any ideas (clean ones please) but then again as the original one was used for cleaning up.

I`ve been wondering what the "bucket" would be carrying/lifting. If you made  a skip(canal maintenance) then it would "Skipper", or with two wheelie-bins (marina use)then "Scaffie" is our local name for the refuse collectors (bin men). Both names with nautical theme. :embarrassed: ;)

Since it is used to pick up debris, how about something like "Limb Skinner" or "Bucket Tug"

What about calling it 'Heathspring'

Tenuous link again, seeing as it's obviously a Springer and a dredger of sorts, then you've got ledger that rhymes with dredger - and then there's Heath Ledger (dec.)

you could be right ,there is some sh.t (word not allowed) :) in the pond at the moment ,mainly bio fuel dust from the ajacent quay where they have been discharging the last few days leaving a scum on the surface also damn weed ,when you pull it out it looks like a fishing net being drawn in ,still working on a sutable / legal way of removing it ,but thats for another topic .
