Cabadaj & his springers
« on: September 16, 2008, 11:55:49 »
Hi everybody!

I'm building springers since 2007. By then I built three springers - "Prvni" (First), "Palmare" and "Barracuda". There are some photos of them. I can tell some technical data or experiences if you would like.

Hello and welcome to the only dediocated Tug forum . Loved the photos of your springers and what a simple but neat idea of the floats on the towlines. Ingenious  :)

cheers

To Red Hamish: I tried how powerful they are - "First" can tow 180 kg and "Barracuda" 300 kg.

Hi and welcome :) :) :) Love your models, I am in agreement with John the 'Palmare' is stunning but I have always loved the old tugs they have such graceful lines..

Sorry I had to remove your post. Can we have all posts in English please so our moderators can read them. Thank you......... Mark.

OK, there is no problem, I write English, but sorry for the mistakes, my English is not very good.

I wrote that a well-known Cabadaj ship, because I drove it all. Cabadaj is my colleague, with whom we are models of ships.   :)

Excellent...Now guys go back and look at the third photo from the top....The joy in the three little boys faces is so obvious....makes it all worth while, or am I an old sentimental fool??

Try pulling on a fish weighing scale with your springers to give a more accurate result.

Some nice Springers Cabadaj  :)
