The info I received from the States about Lee Taylor, also had quite a lot about Craig Arfons. Can't remember just how much else, but I know Craig's crash is on the tape.

It's all on my site at http://www.rainbowcoloured.co.uk if anyone is interesed.

Regards to all, Fred

Sorry folks, it must have been my 'Mr Whoppit's K7 Fund' website it was on. Never mind I'll get it all uploaded as soon as I can onto my new site.

Regards, Fred

It can be sunny when it's raining... I've seen it.

I don't mind rain in Coniston I brought a really good waterproof coat and when it gets really bad and really windy I go and hang it up in the Bull and sit by the fire with a pint!! Engine looks great Guys and I follow the rebuild day by day from afar not long to go now. Save me a job Bill!!

Our website gets updated - though not as often as ideally, as discussed in previous posts. But there is new information there for those interested in what we're doing, engineering-wise.

The most recent updates are a work-in-progress item in the "News" section and one of the short biogs we've been putting into the "Team" section to highlight who our team-members are. The latest team-member to be featured is Tim Harrison, our digital design/CAD specialist who joined the team way back in 2001, when we thought we would be building the Ken Norris-inspired reverse four-pointer boat. Tim helped me through the subsequent wilderness years, while we finally sought a viable design, and since then has played a major role in the vast amount of CAD/CAE work we are doing to get Quicksilver water-ready.

Work-in-progress, meanwhile, which is highlighted in the "News" section of our site, is mainly about small, but important, details - such as the fly-by-wire throttle system, the air-start system and so on. Stuff that takes time to sort out but is vital to the operation of the craft. The bigger tasks we are occupied with are there, too. The detail design work we are doing on the hull is explained, for example - particularly work on the sponson-arms. There is a picture shown to illustrate this news item; a CAD image that came from our structural analysis work.

Many small details - such as the engine side-mountings - are not shown in this image. Not for any sinister reason, not censorship; just because many of the details were not part of the specific analysis that this particular image was "grabbed" from.
