Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

Malcolm, Bill Many thanks for your kind words. I must explain that whilst totally shattered' by all the shenanigans regarding K7 which prompted the sale of my books, I have not given up hope. I still have all my collection of photos, both personally taken, Geoff Halliwell photos given and bought and...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

To the Ruskin Museum. Sort out and sign a cast iron agreement with the BBP as soon as possible and make arrangements for a triumphant return of the old girl to Coniston, allow her to show her prowess and during breaks from arranged runs/exhibits etc allow her to rest on display in the custom she sho...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

To Don Wales Don, we are well acquainted, and I consider us as friends. I am unable to fathom why you have decided to try and get K7 put in a museum and left there as a dead exhibit!

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

Regarding your support of the Museum to get K7 on display. K7 crashed on 4th January 1967, why didn’t you or Don try to raise her from the depths? You had plenty of opportunity but have jumped onboard with Bill and the BBP who had the balls to bring her from the depths and return her to working cond...

Re: Bluebird Archive Photos & Films

Geoff Halliwell was a near neighbour of mine and I used to visit him regularly and transport him round the country. I acted as 'go between' in getting copies of his original photos for people. From memory I got 50 copies of 10 or so photos which I sold at speed record club meetings over the years[al...

Re: early 80`s jet hydroplane, Coniston.

I have spoken to a friend who was involved with Noel Edmonds. He cannot remember any Blue ribbon /transatlantic boat scam. He was allegedly scammed by Basil Wainwright over the Excaliber project.

For those worried re the threat of arrest for the dreaded offence of 'Breach of the Peace', well put that into the furthest part of your mind.The arrest has many legalities that have to...
