Right here on Mayhem, look in Springer Tugs pages. You have to build them but you can get fibreglass hull to fit out yourself. Start at page ONE and read the history and how to get plans and what clubs are involded  O0.  Have you found any clubs in your area?

Have a look at SHG Marine's catalogue...

http://www.shgmodels.com/acatalog/

They have a vac formed 'Sprinter tug' which is a close run thing to a Springer (but not as tough as a built one)

If you are looking for a RTR Springer, the Toesup Boat Werks could make you one (Minus RC, motor and batteries) for about $2K  :-))
