I would have to confess that I underbid the project... so, No flashing lights.
Not that it wasn't tempting to put in lights, railings, hand rails, door latch, extended mast, coffee pot...

I have been experimenting with bulbus bottoms , ok it is on an oversized springer (not regulation size)
But my thought was to fit a bulbus bottom to a regulation springer hull where the motor would be housed , this would give stability and may reduce the dive effect .
The big question is  IS IT STILL CLASSED AS A SPRINGER ??

Hi
          NO

    All standard  Springer are  18" x 8"  :-))            Super Springer  have bits added e.g.  2 motors ,Kort Nozzles, 12v or bigger size  O0

$%%&*$ (oh "xxxxx").
It would still be 18"x8" , have a single prop and a 2"sq rudder and run off 6v  %) :} .

It would just have a boil on it's bottom  :-))

What shape and where is your pimple?   I experimented with the bulbous bow concept (dubbed Arrow`s knob by someone !)  It didnt stop diving at speed but did seem to move the bow wave to the stern !   The bulb got smaller when ice-breaking and eventually fell off  :o so perhaps "someone" had the correct description after all. {-)

At least you will have a decent name for the bulge "engine pod" perhaps.  Must have a long shaft then unless you plan a "puller prop" ?  Rule of the house  ...must have pictures...show us your pimple

no puller just a standard pusher prop ,
but the idea is to have it slightly further forward and as the bulb will allow the whole assembly to be deeper in the water this will hopefully give more thrust/torque .
My current project shows the bulb , but the springer wont have a kort ok .

Deviant Springer I`m afraid. The power-pod is more like a keel.  No korts allowed for a standard Springer and your bow has a very rounded corners :((. You`ve read the rules I presume?  Adding more power isnt a good idea on a Springer, but it is your boat do what you like.  Keep us informed , with pics of course. :-))

will do , the pod is not meant to act as a keel , although i can see what you mean .
though this project is only what can be done as the intended springer will have standard square bow and stern
and a standard prop and rudder to meat the rules.
Once i get the build underway i will post pic's .

I was thinking of building a springer as a side project (like i don't have enough to do) anyhow i put it right on the back burner, probably never to get done, but has anyone done an X BOW springer? be interested to see one build even if its not me!

All Springer tugs are the figment of the builder`s imagination (Cromarty Rose is a scale model - http://www.modelboatmayhem.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=3471.msg264540#msg264540 ). You can buy a fibreglass hull and work from there. http://www.modelsbydesign.co.uk/

Plenty of "how-to-do-it" pics and advice on Mayhem. Look at lots of tug pictures and "eyeball" it.  

Welcome to the fold.  :-))
