Re: Other Speed Record Breakers Are Available!

I don't like to drag this out too much on this forum, but it seems my last post on here has prompted a public statement - on the Longbow website, then transmitted elsewhere online - that the contents of my post were malicious and untrue. Since all this stuff - whether it is on here or elsewhere - is...

Re: Other Speed Record Breakers Are Available!

Ahem ... yer ... I'm sorry to hear about Daniel. I didn't know him but he put a lot of commitment into his project and now I guess we'll never know. I could comment further on the other stuff on there, but I'm too diplomatic. Don't like our Graham's name being taken in vain, though, as I'm hurting p...

Re: Triumph to Tragic in one fell swoop.

In my humble opinion, I cannot see what the problem is with people on Bill's choice of K7 Drivers. If anyone has been making those sorts of noises, they've been making them pretty quietly. I've never heard any criticism of Ted and Stew's selection. If the job description called for previous experie...

Re: Triumph to Tragic in one fell swoop.

Techteam, I apologise to you, unreservedly. By now you will have realised that I am over-defensive in some situations. You will have to remind me in more detail - by PM, if you would - of the circumstances you have just outlined. Please bear in mind that I do a fairly large number of talks up and do...

Re: Triumph to Tragic in one fell swoop.

Fully agree that the experience would be beneficial, Bill. Essential? Perhaps even that - but I can't quite go that far. If the prior-experience box had had to be ticked, Richard would never have got his record and Donald wouldn't have got any of his records at all. There's probably an argument over...

Re: Triumph to Tragic in one fell swoop.

Why would it get up my nose? I don't necessarily think driving a WWSR boat is difficult, but, knowing how to react to a dangerous situation or a little experience of what may happen must surely be useful. That old saying ignorance breeds contempt or whatever. I'm also pretty certain that Stewarts m...
