hi tugboat andy

thanks do you have some pictures of your springers i will post more picture soon of my build  :-))

kind regards jason

Hello Jason - I need to figure out how to resize my photos before I can post them here....Most of my pictures are over at RC Groups on the Springer thread.

Attached is the first boat I built. I have almost completely done away with the skeg on the two boats I am building now. They turn on a dime....er,uh....well you get the idea. :-))

At the prompting of arrow 5, I've started a Springer. It'll have a Canadian flavour. Several upper decks reflecting that image have come to mind. I'll post photos when done.
  We've also decided to use this design as a club build. I think its a good way to get some members familiar with various techniques used in building more complicated vessels. Also it gives them confidence in doing a first scratch build.
