Amazing footage of the Bluebird on the water in Bute, I would've loved to have been there. The restoration project is truly incredible! Any plans at all to bring her back to Coniston?

Wish I could have been at Loch Fad, the footage is amazing. Been following the project for a long time. Astonishing work.

My wife and I decided to go to Loch Fad on 7 August to see Bluebird.
Within minutes of arriving at the loch we were both totally absorbed by the whole Bluebird K7 story. The team members were so approachable, knowledgeable helpful and delightful. That was just the start. There were possibly 50 to 100 public visitors in and around just watching what was going on and blethering to whoever was beside them. What a wonderfully interested and interesting crowd. People had come from far and near to see this famous craft take to the water again. We were not disappointed. To see, hear, feel and smell Bluebird running at up to 130 mph made the hairs stand on end. How majestic.
We stayed all day and returned for a second day on Thursday 9th.
We would just like to say a huge thank you to all involved with the K7 project for bringing this wonderful craft and the wonderful people to Bute to allow us to touch this piece of history. We are honoured to have experienced it.

The team have done an amazing job in restoring Bluebird and I am delighted to have seen the videos of her under power. Would love to have seen this live, but couldn't make it. Will make Coniston though.

Had the great fortune to see 2x double runs on Thursday. Almost beyond belief seeing Bluebird going 'doon the watter' on Bute. An outstanding achievement by Bill & the team in preserving this icon. One question, how do I get my hands on a Bute '18 Bluebird polo shirt?

My wife and I came over to Bute yesterday and had a wonderful day. Not only was the weather amazing, but we spoke to several of the team and watched the two runs. Bluebird looked absolutely amazing and to hear the jet start up only twenty feet away was mind-blowing! Well done to everyone involved and good luck in the future.

Just fabulous👌🏽What you guys....and the girls have acheived is nothing short of amazing, you have brought a once glorious machine back to her form of glory and put her back where she belongs on the water, in an era where we seem to see the end of most British engineering marvels, it’s great to see history being made once more.
I’ve been following the bluebird project for a few years now, waiting for the day we see her back on the water, I must admit I didn’t expect to see a run of that speed!!, would of loved to come to Bute, is there any talk of Bluebird running on Coniston water??

Awesome! Never expected that kind of speed on testing! Thank you so much for the tremendous recovery and restoration, loving the video clips! Wish Dad had the time off work to come up there! 🙁 Thanks again

Bill, and the whole team of helpers and supporters you have inspired, I am speechless. I have followed this project from the start (tipping in a bit of financial support now and then when funds were low - I say this not to show off but to encourage others, particularly new followers, these guys are all volunteers and whether it be for rivets, beers, fuel (!) they will appreciate it)The speed at which the final build came together took me by surprise but not nearly as much as how the boat has performed. I genuinely believed you when you said you were aiming for say 60mph and just planning - but clearly K7 only knows one way to go up and down a loch or lake. Blown away with not only the performance but just how right the she looks on those fast runs. David
