Re: Bluebird Runs 2019

The second one is on an identical maintenance stand as the one we have. It weighs more than the engine!

Re: Bluebird Runs 2019

Hopefully common sense will win over and the efforts of the most determined people I have ever worked with in my life who have had to fight their corner every inch of the way will be allowed the same respect. If common sense fails it will only bring huge shame on those who derailed it. History will...

Re: Bluebird Runs 2019

It's been sectioned for display. It will never run again, sadly.

Re: Bluebird Runs 2019

Seems a slightly back to front way of doing things. We'd have almost certainly finished and tested the boat this summer and then she'd be ready to display, which would have freed up some time to lend a hand with the proving trial arrangements and all that's needed is to sign off on what was agreed y...

Re: Visit to North Shields- model makers.

She was absolutely gutted though when i told her we wont be running this year, as i can imagine a lot of others will be. No good reason why we shouldn't run this year. It would be great for everyone and apart from anything else, it would serve to get the boat back together, some of the jobs done th...

Re: Bluebird Runs 2019

Crazy, isn't it. We've worked all this time on the understanding that we were going to have a proving trial and then display the boat while we take good care of it and look after future maintenance, running, etc. That was always the deal so soon as that's signed off in whatever form it finally takes...

Re: Bluebird Runs 2019

Seriously, the project is 23 years old this year and in that time we've been accused of being BBC hired grave robbers, of posessing lesser intelligence than the HLF and the museum community in general and all manner of other nonsense but we've weathered every storm and come out on top. We know exact...

Re: Bluebird Runs 2019

If K7 was going to run in 2019 it would have been announced and sorted by now if all parties were happy . Clearly theres a major issue and just like the nine month three month deal it looks like its never going to come to fruition. Bloody glad you're not my oncologist! We've weathered far worse sto...
