There are quite a few other K7 models out there, many large scale turbine powered too, would definitely be cool to get a bunch of them together!!

Re: Technical Talk

I read in donalds book ‘into the water barrier’ that when he applied power bluebird pulled to one side due to the gyroscopic forces of the engine spinning. Does any one know of Ted or Stu experienced this ??. Ian lazenby

Re: Triumph to Tragic in one fell swoop.

Power boat and pilot experiance a big advantage but personally i think the main attributes are intelligence, level headedness and courage! Those attributes with pilot and power boat experiance then thats the man or men for the job so ted and stu are the right ones. Ian lazenby
