Re: Pic of the Day

I think Campbell was way too much of a pro to allow that to have that happen and effect his ability to conduct K7. The images of the day don't point to it happening either.

Re: Bluebird Project You Tube Channel & Vimeo

Cant wait to see her fully painted up and finished . Don't be deceived - she's still a very long way from finished. There's many a fudge and a bodge to be cut back out and done to our usual, uncompromising standards and that will take time once we get back from Bute but she's going to look and work...

I can't help wondering if that canopy misted up on that cold January morning.

They're bloody awful things. It's like someone clashed a five bar gate on the front of all our hard work but they look like the old photos so they must be right...

Re: A stupid question .. Or maybe not.

Just seen the lead weights appear on the last picture of the day. That picture has raise a question in my head that has been lurking for some time about the restoration of K7.

Is it only me who did the numbers? He's pushing 300kmh, which, in English is about 180mph on a stretch of water 1500m long, (English = a smoot under a mile).

Re: Return to the Water

Most probably still waiting for the official answer :roll: Gave me a good chuckle, did that...
