Thank you, I am honored. I noticed a week or two back that Alabama was wasn't on the list. I'm still a few weeks from completing my boat, but that's close enough.

Boats are not a big item down here, which is suprising since there are more major lakes and farm ponds than there are RC flying fields. Maybe I can start something down here, like I did with electric planes 3-4 years ago...

Duncan, glad to hear that you're following the doctor's advice, though you shouldn't go overboard on the dosage---.

To be a 2x Springer, it will need to be 36" x 16" x 9"

Hi joe and welcome aboard,
If you let us know what you plan to do, we might be able to give a good answer. But just guessing that you just want a bigger Springer, I would just use the same side view streched length wise and raise the top of the boat 1" higher. If you make the sides twice the height you will need alot more weight and power which means more money. Again....If we knew your purpose and how you are going to rig it......= a better answer to your needs

ask away my friend

Joe,
Now all you have to do is to use two inches between stations versus one inch on page two of Mr. toes link and add 1" to each station height. Even I can do math If you have read the 6000 + post,...you will see that the regular size springer can push hundreds of pounds...maybe not at race speeds but it gets it done You ain't done yet?

That will give you 8x the displacement. 60+lbs is a bit heavy for me.

I am assembling bits for 1.5x size which is 27" x 12" x 6.75". This would give a displacement of around 27lbs & plenty of room for a drive system that includes twin 3.5" Korts & bow thruster.

Sounds about right for a 1.5x Springer.. We DO need pics of the build though

By the way, you can fit a bow thruster in a standard sized Springer
