Good grief...CHILEAN??????? The symptoms are far worse than we all thought. Now if it was a good Hunter Red (Oz, of course, Hunter Valley, NW of Sydney, and reds to die for - yum to the max), or from the Margaret River, SW of Perth (Oz likewise), I could concur. Chardonnay is usually sold here in boxes for plebian consumption. Mind you, good folks of Springerdom, it sounds to me that like there might have been a small improvement.

When I tried to weigh my Springer on the Senior Domestic Engineer's Kitchen scales I was told off. Does that answer your question, or have I been overimbibing in good Oz red wine, again?

Lets see, the SDE has chastised me for using the scales, kitchen sink scissors, the baby bath and the dining table, I'm surprised I haven't been permanently hospitalised......or worse.

As "Walrusklasse" is a submarine guy I think it might be going by unterseeboot. All such movements are classified of course, we may never know

I get the impression that "Red-O" gets all the attention and none of the other masterpieces.

With all this talk of the Springer push tugs. I decided to build one, but not for class competition.
I found a nice little 25 ft twin engine. So I think that it would make a great 1/12 scale tug. I don't have any push tugs in my collection.
It will work out to 25 inch with 2 - 975 motors running on 8.4 volts that will give me about 11,000 on the 5 blade Rivabo 50 mm props. It will have kort nozzles and 6 rudders. So I will be using an 8 channel radio.
Controls will be:
1. rear rudders
2. port motor
3. starboard motor
4. front rudders
5. running / inter. lights
6. roof spot lights / top spot lights
7. horn / engine sound
8. to be shown later, surprise
I think with the twin throttles and 6 rudders it will be very maneuverable and have the power to push a house down.
