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

Rumour elsewhere has it that the Ruskin has served a legal claim on the boat as their property. Perhaps BBP can give either a confirmation of this or a clear denial? If this is true then it's not good news and would explain the latest BBP tweet. I appreciate the BBP may not be able to say anything ...

We ought to be prepping to run instead of watching the dust get thicker. But we'll get there. Sorry for asking what might be an awkward question but why is the delay preventing you from continuing the physical work on K7 ? Surely you can carry on rebuilding her ready for the next outing (and workin...

...but having the clout to stop Bluebird running anywhere? That sounds like a fairly major power shift...
I hope you're wrong but if this is what's happened then it will probably be war with the Ruskin in court. Bill can you clarify anything at this stage?

Re: Bluebird Runs 2019

Does this mean there will be no K7 outing this year, or just that it won't be a joint venture with the Ruskin?

So now you know the score - someone tell us what we should do next?
Go back to Bute again this summer and also start putting a plan together to run K7 at other locations apart from Coniston (and Bute). I honestly don't think you could have done any more than you have.
