For the PNW question on THE Resolution (LOG TUG) of mine. The hull came from Loren Scott of Burnaby Club and is the Harken I think but not sure. Been a lot of fun over the years, has a Robbe Navy powerplant, 8 cells, EMS/Jomar Nautical Throttle ESC, lights. It is a bit Twitchy due to small size and big power but if you need to move something it will get it done. Managed a Second in Team tow at this event, used as the Back boat with C. Browns Towboat(Black Hull with low Red Cabin) in the Lead position.

CaptLee, while I was at the Regatta, I noticed a few Pusher Tugs that were vary stable in the water and would make excellent rescue boats. I understand that one of your club members may have designed the hull? I also heard that years back, your club used to use these boats for water polo games. Sorry to say, I only took a picture of one of them, and I'm kicking myself now. If possible, could you post the measurements (for hull), I'd like to try building one out of wood. Thanks CaptLee, here's a picture of the tug.

Cap'n Lee is from SFMYC in 'Frisco and the water polo club was the INS in Riverside.

Bilge, you are referring the the "Springer"- it was highly promoted in the SFMYC by one of our late club members- He created a few additional specification rules (power plant)for use in polo matches (called "Springer Ltd.") but the boat was not designed by him. The folks in the Pacific northwest get that credit.

The boat in the picture you took is not a "springer".

See the Springer thread for more details


I'm not positive but I think the INS is/was promoting its own version of a polo push tug- the one you took a picture of may be that type-

Thanks kmot and Aerominded, I'm currently building two Springer Tugs as per Irregular's specifications (which is, anything goes), LOL. The Pusher Tug in the picture is larger then a standard Springer Tug and my intention was not to enter water polo games but to build a larger rescue boat and this hull seems to fit the bill. One of the Irregular's (Brad) is building a 2X larger Springer Tug, but the characteristics of the Springer will be magnified two times, with its pitching and rolling. Kmot explained why that may be the case. If anyone has the measurements for the boat hull (Pusher Tug) I posted, please post them.

Thank you, Cobra Man

Correctemundo Areo. That is the hull INS once offered on their website.

Now that's what I'm talking about! Thank you so much toesup, that's the exact boat I saw on the water, cruising steady as a rock.
