PIRATE GUNSHIP ON THE WATER...PICCIES AND YOU-TUBE VID.
« on: April 24, 2013, 06:12:40 PM »

Here is the Springer pirate gunship, with dodgy looking crew  {-)  Taken today just before the club yacht guys arrived. Loads of fun, a small amount of water got into her, but I have added a sealant strip around the hull and the deck, it had to be water splashed up as there was no water leaking from the prop shaft or the rudder or from any internal cracks. She needs some ballast on the left hand side as the cab weight is slightly tipping her, not much but a tad. Also had another rudder issue...I ain't got one. The one Daz had fitted finally gave up the ghost and delaminated-made of wood-then it snapped around the rudder post. So, need to sort that out...Stan...may need your help again, he is going to be sick of the sight of me, he has already done a new rudder system for my barge and a superb job too, no way could I solder like that, even with practise.
 
Anyway, here are some piccies and the vid.

Looks like you enjoyed yourself on a fine day,
 
shame about the rudder -- I'm sure you'll get that fixed PDQ.
 
Happy sailing-

Hi Guys, had loads of fun. My lad had came with me and had a go, he really enjoyed it so he has the pudding tug that I also got off Daz and he is doing that up. When I get the barge off Stan and get the rudder sorted on this then he will be using this and me the barge until his is sorted.
