Re: Nomadic, Titanic & other historic vessels

Saw that - the do-gooders plan to save the planet with hopeless electric cars by smashing up hydrothermal vents. Shame shrimps and jellyfish aren't as cute as Snow Leopards.

Return to the Water

Been reviewing what's to be done to get the big tin machine through her crew training and proving trials. We're fast realising that our crew training exercise is an essential step before showing K7 off again in all her noisy glory to a waiting world. The more we develop our planning documents, kit-l...

The "Dragons Teeth" look awesome back in situ Bill! :D
They certainly do... and I don't think there's anyone who hasn't worked on them. I did the welding but that's where my involvement ended. Someone else did the rest before Rich made installing them his baby - a splendid team effort.

Re: Pic of the Day

Nice to see the teeth back under the nose. They're one of those jobs we dipped in and out of for years - a bit of welding here, some dressing and filing there, then put them down for months on end.
