Just heard on the BBC re crew training in Bute, not Coniston. Must admit was surprised but my main thought was, nah, there's more to this than the beeb are telling us. Sure enough, found your Forum on a Google search and read text re the Park Authority not playing ball.
Would really like to know exactly WHY you've had to go to Bute. Shouldn't complain really as I'll be Warden at a campite in Ayr this year so there's a VERY good chance I'll be able to get over to the island to view. Can;t wait as Donald & Isambard KB were my boyhood heros.

just heard the news, I have followed your project from the dat you found her, visited for Donald's funeral, watched you take her apart, and slowly piece her back together, but I am shocked and heart broken, that you have for whatever reason, chose to test her out on a Scottish loch, and not on the Lake that cost Donald his life, I am also sure a lot of followers w ill feel the same way. Having said that I should be very sorry that I cannot watch the run in person. But once she is back in the Rankin Museum I shall be one of the first to go see her, and pay my respects to Donald.well done to the team for all they have done.

I think you and your team should be so proud of what you have achieved, you have brought back to life as much of blue bird as possible.
I hate that in restoration so much of the fabric of the original is lost but you and your team really get what it means to save as much as possible which impresses the * * * out of me.
Donald and his family must be so happy that you have done all of this incredible work for no reward other than the love of history and the man, which I think is well deserved.
Please please dont give up, I cant wait to see it completed and I think it will be well worth a trip to se it when its done.
Good Luck Team.

Cheers Chris :!clap:

Hi,

The only thing that I can find regarding "K" is:

"Lloyd's unlimited rating is a rating applied to hydroplanes competing for the water speed record, as applied by Lloyd's Register. It is usually denoted by a circular white badge on the hull, with an infinity symbol "∞" above the K and number for Lloyd's "unlimited" group.[1]"
Therefore my assumption is that the "K" is the unlimited group and the numbers being the individual different boats to hold that application (registration number.
If I am incorrect I am sure someone will be quick to correct.

Paul

I ran across this website after looking up the Bluebird on YouTube. I am totally impressed with all that you have done. I hope to see the boat on the water before 2020. I'm sure that will be an emotional moment for many, many people! I also hope that your work gets the international attention it deserves. Here's to success!

I have just spent the week in Coniston. Incredible to be there and imagine just what happened all those years ago.
