hi everyone just made the kids a brushless mini springer to mess with runs on nimh or lipo,
i used a little 1000kv brushless outrunner 14 pole motor,
has plenty of torque,only pulls 3 amp at full throttle in the water,
springer measures 11inch x 5 1/2 inch,

A standard Springer is 18" x 8" as defined by the original Pacific North West (USA) drawings.

Springer's have been scaled both up and down using a division or multiplication of 18" x 8".

At 11" long, i was expecting the width to be 4.8"
At 5.5" wide, i was expecting the length to be 12.4"

I dont have a problem  ok2

You have made a nice job of the Springer's and the barge.

OK so it is not just my OMRA 2010 boat I have been working on.  {-) {-) {-) {-)
I had to send Nathens springer tug to him after Llanberis this year. Well I decided to make one for my Grandson Oscar.  As you can see it is nearly ready for its trip out on the water reel soon. ( Stevenage has a alge prob and we can't use our nomal lake) 
ENJOY!!! Yes the bucket on the BOB CAT goes up & down. The lights work, The rear wheels go round and it also has some sound fx . All good clean fun {-) {-) {-) {-) {-) {-) {-)

There are rumors around the Boat Werks that a special cloaking device (Codename B.O.X.) is being prepared for one of the TBW's Springer's... in readiness for a long journey...
