Well, not completely ready, but ok for a maiden tomorrow...
Still a lot of sanding, staining, lacquer and brass to do, but you get the idea.
The prop in the video is a 60mm, but the test will be with a 40 (Robbe 3blade). If everything is ok, I'll go for a Raboesch 4 or 5 blades.
One more thing: the remote I'll use in the maiden allows for an extended travel, so the azipod goes almost at 90 degrees.

can you land on that ?
This looks like it is going to be a retired tug skipper`s mahogany runabout. Must have a video of it doing party tricks with the pod-drive. Super Springer class I think. Nice .

So broke I can't pay attention
Looks very interesting, with that seup there is a bit of extra space in the hull, nice and neat.

The design of the main hull access area reminds me of something used in a hospital for some reason.

After all the comments (yours and the guys at the pond), it might be interesting to exploit the shape... The original plan was to cut out the cover, fabricate a nice seat, windshield, dash, etc. Right now, I might just cut a similar shape on the inside, use a piece of abs as watertight and to a proper cover on top of it
And yes, the paper roll gives some ideas...

Anyway, this is how it performed today. The ESC was too small and was cutting off every time I hit the throttle, but I have a 125A not used, that should be more than enough.

The azi-pod gives it great flush...sorry thrust. A new breed of Super Springers is born, nice performance.

I'm writing an article for our clubs website about this Springer.
Any idea about when these first springers was built ?
I understand they come from NWRCSM ?

How long would a BL live in the water ? If you gave it some TLC ?
