Update on the pointer,
it is almost ready for water , i have fitted the 900 class motor direct drive to a 70mm brass 4 blade prop and a 4x3" rudder .
Power is from 2 12v 7ah batterys (good ballast) and an electronize FR 30 esc , no wheel house at the moment  oh and no pics also .

Oh and it revs like stink  :D .

simple definition of springer in my mind it is a pushboat that required a superstructure (by rule) but the more simple point is this where are the push knees on your pointer? and if you can change the shape this much what is to say you couldn't change the draft and tunnel for the shaft(s), etc.?

The pointer has had a water test and runs very well with no diving  although the 900 motor gets realy warm , no i think REALY HOTT could do with some water cooling  :-)).
As for push knees they could be added later , but at the moment she has been put on hold while i play with some other projects .
Fooman , that looks different , almost a wheelie  O0 .
