hi novie
this bloody weather has crippled me, in total six weeks of not being able to work. been doing bits but thats all.
i'm due up in coniston in the next few weeks i'll give you a shout.
as regards diving, whenever i'm needed, just tell me where and when.
still diving, just not doing the deep stuff as i can't find the time to build up to doing those level of dives so just plodding around down to 50m max for now.
have we any rough idea when trials might possibly be? i know lots of work to do yet, hoping to come up to newcastle soon but the weather put a delay on that.

hope your all ok and keep up the good work!

Hi, following the "Bluebird" with great interest. years of going to Coniston on holiday and being told all the stories (wasnt there born 66) I think a family friend David Aldred is involved. I have a new 4m safety/rescue rib and have the rya power boat 2 qualification and would love to help. If not please let me know when it is, I would love to be there!! regards Mike

See the bye law 'thread' too.

The BBP will be under the control of the LDNPA so we cannot confirm just yet all the offers of help - especially those associated with being on the water where people may be considered more vulnerable than those on the bank, up to 1/2 km from the K7 craft. [A craft that will travel somewhat slower than the best boats taking part in records week].

Timing remains unknown too......

If you need any hands on support with the engine and supporting systems let me know - would be most willing to help out. Although I specialise in Gas Turbines I have also been a Race Engineer on sportscars so would be happy to help out anywhere it is needed.

Just give us a call.

Hi I'm a longtime lurker here, but with no specialist knowledge about K7 I have not chipped in before.

I'd like to offer my wifes and my support. We are both happy to do whatever need doing.

I'm not sure my skills will be particularly useful on the day, I'm a technical author writing manuals for the building industry but I make a mean brew and am pretty practical so can lend a hand werever it is needed.

My wife is a health and safety trainer/advisor (yes, yes I know). There are bound to be a multitude of risk assesments, method statements needed to keep various parties happy with the running and operating of the boat, she would be happy to lend a hand wiht these as well as anythng alse that is required.

Please PM me if this is of interest.

Kid Regards

James
