Toes; that might mean solid expanded polystyrene foam block ? My Spanish is limited to what I picked up from cowboy movies but I think the name is "River Mule" ?  Good name if that is correct.  PPSailor, where are you Jose ? Is the forward upward slope on bow added to the standard Springer hull ? Any more details, what is the roller device on bow ?

Arrow5,

If you look carefully at the pic the hull appears to be flat bottomed...........

Don't think so Roy , is that not just the reflection of the top half of the hull ? Anyway the definitive LOCH INSH SPRINGER GOAL POST has been decided , well they were sitting about doing nothing so I asked to use them.  I also had to purchase  :o, yes with money :'( a ball for practice,   ! it is tricky. What size ball was used at Mayhem event? Martin , Bradders ????

Hi captain arrow5. Ppsailor salute from Mexico. I was mistaken of forum. my English is to regulate.-_I am Sorry. - A friend commented to me, who the boat must reunite certain elements so that it considers itself him to springer. A main element is the hull.-How I can eliminate or erase the photo of my boat of this forum?
Thank you very much
Another question…. As I can initiate a forum on boats impelled with the solar energy.??? (solarboats)?

Welcome to the forum Jose, that is correct Springers are a regulated design of boat but they are based on the type you have modelled, and very nice your`s is too. I hope you keep the photo on this forum, it is good that we have contributers from Mexico. I am sure the moderators of Model Mayhem will answer the Solar Propulsion question.  Martin/Brad over to you.

Hi all reading this thread with interest.  As a game what about each Springer towing an inflated baloon and have a pin or bursting device on the bow?  Sort of 'Last man standing' i.e last Springer to still have an inflated baloon.

I am busy building both a Springer and a 12/4th scale pusher tug, I will try to get some pictures out over the weekend. Scotland in September sounds nice, but being on holiday at Niagara Falls sounds better ;D ;D.

Yes we are getting some springers together for the show at Warwick in November 9, 10, 11, put on a display and a football match. If any one is interested in coming let me know, then I can let the organisers know how much Mayhem to expect.

One note on this the organisers say that any Springers coming to the Warwick show have to be there for all three days, so that is from the Friday to the Sunday. I am going to be there for the three days so if you wanted to get your Springers to me I could take them you would then be able to have a play when you come, I could then return them to you after the show.

There are plans at the beginning of this posting. The basic hull is 18inches or 450mm long by 8inches or 200mm wide. If you have a problem printing them let me know and I will post you a copy.
Keep us informed of how it is going and what the top is like, if you have any queries ask away there are quite a few springer builders here.

Good idea Chris, I've gone same route as you and got a fellow Mayhemer to build hull (and install motor, prop and esc etc.). I'm going to try and aproximatly replicate my newly completed AlKhubar which has been lovingly built by Graham at themodeldock.  I too will post once my superstructure work commences.

My mate Sandy goes to car-boot sales browsing for books to buy and sometimes comes home with useful "bits n pieces" for modelling. These are his latest finds.  A broken digger and a giant construction site crane, latter in working order after some fiddling.  Stripping the digger I think we have an ideal top for a Springer, just needs some nautical items added, mast, nav lights etc. The crane can be dismantled to be a cargo or the lower half used as a working barge crane. Worth looking for discarded toys for dock-side items too.
