Hi Dave,

That's not my springer, it was one that was hiding in amongst the
scale ships at an event in Seattle, Washington, the Bellevue Regatta.

As the tugs originated from the local club there, they have more than
their fair share of odd Springers...

Here's another that I was thinking of,... the Hot Tub springer.

Here's an unusual Springer.

I've modelled it on my paddle steamer 'Waverley'

Thanks George. I do like building these and sailing them.

I find they are so sturdy.  Never any worries about bashing into the side of the pond.   ;D

Where is the Springer with the outhouse?  Someone in the NWRCSM I think.  I have seen it in person.  It has the usual honey hole, a roll of TP, and a steering wheel where the pooper can steer from   :) :D
