Stolen from the excellent Czech site www.mo-na-ko.net  site picture of a steam powered side-wheel paddle Springer. There is also an ad for "The Springer Cup 2010" 5th June at Pisek. Towing and polo plus a slot for steam boats. Always fancied a week-end in Prague %) ;) O0

I`ve been doing a wee bit of browsing on the new Cromarty Ferry that will replace the "Cromarty Rose" which suffered the indignity of having to be towed to port after a major breakdown last year. The replacement will be operating later this month. A new-build by Southampton Marine Services will be a bit larger at 56ft long and carry twice as many cars, ie 4 . They have time-lapse video on the builder`s website. I`ll be going to have a ten minute crossing from Cromarty to Nigg as soon as she arrives on station. Attached pic is "Rose" in her last colour scheme.

Perfick subject for a springer and Martins photo is just about 1/4 springer size for measurements

Must have a go at it!

Ned

P.S.  The stop frame build idea is great
Just the job for one of DD's build logs!
