Yep  Just like that toesupwa,  but with more gusto  {-)  didn't try the rope trick though, so if you read this Ian, bring a good thick rope with you next time  O0

You can not call that a springer not even a superspringer. We all know that springers try to dive at anything over dead slow, and that one is trying to leap out of the water, obviously related to the salmon. {-) {-) {-) {-) {-) {-)

Had sea trials today, all went well, good fun, good performance -

I like the way she looks!  Ready for business.  How is the turning radius ahead and astern? I found my single screw kort noxxle boat will turn tighter astern than ahead....but I aim to cure that on the next boat. O0

When turning ahead, it turns in its own length, pivots around the forward corner of the boat.

Astern isnt quite so good, about 1.5 to 2 times hull length.

Is this another category of Springers...."THE BOY RACER CATEGORY"[/b]

How about this as a idea, the AHHHHHHH category

18" x 8" inch hull size and floor shape as per plan.
Single or Double Motor up to 900 size ( gearing etc. allowed )
Up to 24 volts
Rudder= Kort's or rudder type
Must have a superstructure of some sort.

Thats not a boat!

It's two honking great engines surrounded by just enough box to keep em dry!  O0

Where would everything go? I'm fighting for space with two 500's and two long battery packs.
