Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

This does show one thing though - they are completely short of money. Maybe they can only afford to store K7? Maybe they are waiting since 2008 to gain at least some money from visitors who want to see K7? I'd say they can simply not afford your ideas as they think it would cost them some money - m...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Sometimes I think the whole story lacks any sort of logic from the trustees of the Ruskin Museum. Hi Joerg. Considering that recent events have baffled our eccentric British sensibilities, the effect of the Ruskin on your indefatigably Teutonic brain can only be imagined! But a couple of encouragin...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Seriously though, a grand to bring Bluebird K7 back to Coniston, what planet are they on! I get more puzzled by the day. It wouldn't cover the cost of the diesel for the wagon much less a proper firm of movers. Wouldn't buy a stamp with lawyers either. What can it mean? And something that's slightl...

Re: Visit to North Shields- model makers.

As I said on Monday I cannot make it. My son was going but his wife has insisted on a weekend away. He's just down the road - he can call up to see us anytime. Black Knight, sorry to hear about your father. The partner of one of our much-loved team members is undergoing a similar ordeal right now s...

Re: Other Speed Record Breakers Are Available!

It's a long, straight and usually flat stretch of water. saltwater,admittedly, but so what? The boats will float better in denser water and they will shower off once back ashore then it's beers in the back room of the Bull or over to the Golfer's or wherever else.

I still want to build a full size crusader but I seem to be the only one here who does. Bah!

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

It’s in the hands of the expensive people now, not through our choice or doing, leave it to them...once the final shots have been fired and the irreparable collateral damage has been made, the dust will settle and we can decide where we go. They wheeled in their expensive people of their own voliti...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Surely the BBP must now take legal advice from a lawyer rather than relying on google.
Way ahead of you, Ernie. We've had top lawyers since 2001 when Mr. Ffoulks-Halbard claimed to own the wreckage.

Re: Other Speed Record Breakers Are Available!

Now we all know a nice, speedboat-friendly island in Scotland. Don't laugh, have a think about it, why not relocate Records Week to the Kyles of Bute? https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=kyles+of+Bute&hl=en&rlz=1I7GFRE_en&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi1l6Ka38XhAhVlqnEKHaLHDPkQ_AUIDygC&biw=1440...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

I would much prefer that the BBP and the Ruskin sit down like adults and hash things out and reach an agreement I'd like to make a point here because so many observers have said that we should stop the squabbling and sit down like grownups and they are both absolutely right and completely unfair. B...
