Good after noon, all my friends...will some one clear one of my doubt here...?   i saw a rare type of tug, named SPRINGER TUG, and its too fascinating , to me because of its belly...why this crafts belly, (KEEL) is shaped in to a curved manner...?  and with its shape, will it create more drag...? please explain ....

Has anyone thought of putting a "Becker rudder" on a springer I wonder how it would affect the handling. I theory it would be able to turn better.

You probably could - what ever works seems to be the theme - encourage the imagination - unless you're 'springer rules' where there are guidelines for the rudder size - but if it's a fun boat - go for it!

Beckers are OK work extremely well and within the rules if you keep blade area within the class design rules

Jenks, have you seen a Springer turn ?  Rudder set at 45dgrees and they turn on the spot.  Some US builders add a "fishtail" or  diamond shape to the trailng edge of the rudder.  I tried a flat "Gunrney strip" flat T, no moving parts. Tried a triangle version of fishtail too.  To quote the Meercat...simples.

More "enchinears drawrings" for Springer rudders.  All tried and tested, conclusions ...inconclusive {-) .  There is a twin Schottel drive Super Springer in Germany, (test piece for a future project) bet that turns on a pfennig  {-)

Back in June I posted a picture of the Cromarty Rose and suggested it would be a good "scale" Springer.  Well over in Michigan USA Joe31hat agreed and here is the result !  BTW Joe would be interested to know who the new owners are and where she will be operating. Anybody help ?

News from our near European neighbours, the Calais model boat club has a very nice "Sprinkler II", twin Korts, three fire monitors etc. Nice job.  Wonder where "Sprinkler 1" is ?Video on  www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tfvh7t7GnpQ&feature=related  If that doesnt work search for  Springer-daniel_02.mpg   by bruno231960.

Rathi, how about an Indian Springer. There must be some interesting river boats or ferries that would suit the Springer hull. Any design is permitted from the deck upwards !

 Rathi , I think you mis-understand. The Springer design is for the hull and drive system only. You can make any kind of superstructure you like , real boat or one from your immagination.  I dont know what would be a "typical" Indian ship to make your Springer like. I just thought that you might like to make something of your own country, ferry, cargo boat, tug, tanker with a local flavour.   Google "Indian boats" and see what takes your fancy.  Good luck with forming a club, maybe fellow members will build Springers for a water polo/football team !

Yeah, go on blame me :((   Rathi ,  I had a look for "Indian boats" and apart from all the normal shipping lines and so on I did find some from your area but maybe not ideal for a Springer but a "cartoon" version of a Kettuvallam ( ex rice boat, now tourist houseboats) would be fun and very personal to you and your district.  If the customers on these boats a well-off or rich people this could be a market for your skills as a provider of scale models to the hire company who could offer them to their customers as mementos of their holiday.  I presume that there is no bar to you becoming a professional business woman. Perhaps your esteemed parents might consider approaching these companies on you behalf ?  Sorry about bad photo.
