Re: Pic of the day.
Its a good job I put it away safely in the mezzanine then instead of putting it in the scrap bin :D I also noted Roberto on pic of the day over the weekend still slaving away on those important riveting jobs. The number of us having to ware glass's though is becoming worrying as time goes on! Zimmer frames and wheelchairs next I bl--dy hope not :lol: :lol:

...apart from the steel frame actually being kept outside and Rob doing die-grinding not riveting, you got that spot on! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

My eyes came pre-ruined, so I can't even blame old age!

Love the contrasting "then & now" theme of the most recent pics. Shows the hard work you good people have done in full detail. And as for the contrast between them & now? No comparison really, you guys (&girls) are bringing a legend back to life

Apologies if this a question that has been addressed before....If all power was lost would the brake automatically drop to its on position i.e. in the water, or would it automatically raise back/remain in its housing?....

I'm sure I'll be corrected if I'm wrong, I'm sure I've read that it is a manual system, as it was commented on that when she was recovered they found that DMC had deployed it during his final moments.

I'm sure I've read that it is a manual system, as it was commented on that when she was recovered they found that DMC had deployed it during his final moments.
It was manually operated via a switch on the instrument panel and the brake was found in the down position leading us to wonder whether Donald had tried to use it but later, when we stripped the hyd' system, we discovered an accumulator so the brake could be deployed in the event of an engine failure. There's also one or two pic's of the boat on the slipway in the morning with the brake down and one of he captions on the checklist, in Dymo tape on the instrument panel, says to retract the brake so we now believe that it was extended post-accident by stored accumulator pressure.
