Looks like one but it is not one, the dimensions are wrong. The hull should be 18 inches long by 8 inches wide for a regular springer, 16 by 36 for a supper springer and 4 by 8 for a mini springer.

I have never heard of definitions based on size.if they are should not the mini springer be 9" x 4" not 4' x 9'?  I think it would qualify as supper springer, It sure has the proper shape.

It's A Proper Pusher Tug Hull NOT A Springer Hull, There's Not Even A Mention Or Relation Of It Being A Springer {:-{

I came up with a rough design to build on it...I'd be interested to learn what you guys think of it?



It'll be mainly built from plastic sheet, I hate wood and it hates me...550 motor, kort nozzle, the usual sort of thing.

OK, that'll be the one I'll start with then. It would be nice to get the cabin going up and down, maybe on a servo driven mast arrangement. hmm...
