Re: Bluebird Runs 2019

I've not really given too much thought to petitions before but here we are with the thick end of a thousand people who have given a few minutes of their lives to express support and it's humbling so thanks for setting the wheels in motion and to everyone who has signed. Can't help but wonder how we'...

Re: Bluebird Project You Tube Channel & Vimeo

Seeing as Rich and John are dragging me into the sea on Saturday morning - gulp, how un-dive-fit am I these days - by the end of next week I'll either be dead or hooked again on raping shipwrecks and dining on lobster for breakfast. In that instance - assuming that the museum continues to baffle one...

Re: Bluebird Project You Tube Channel & Vimeo

I only ever took Mike out on the control boat once and I'd never seen the footage he shot until just now when I saw it all with fresh eyes. It's amazing! I was in the thick of it at the time but viewed it as pure work - we were on a mission. We've fired a final request at the museum trustees to join...

Re: Other Speed Record Breakers Are Available!

Should we warn anyone Bill, Greenpeace, coast guard etc?
Used to dive for Greenpeace. They're all lunatics - in a nice way. Last trip was on Esperanza in 2005, I think. Grabbing coral of the Isle of Mingulay. Happy days.

Re: Other Speed Record Breakers Are Available!

I hope that those who study the subject of speed history learn from this story and we will see it applied to a subject close to enthusiasts hearts. Have no fear, Malcolm. Worst case this year is we run a few fundraisers so people can come see all our hard work, enjoy a BBQ and a presentation then w...

Re: Spoon frogs and other such craft work

Made a cute little Guy Taplin tribute a few days back. Always wanted to do a driftwood sculpture. There's just no way to know where the material came from. It could be from the other side of the world. Whatever the puffin was made from it's not any wood I've ever worked with before. Made it for the ...

Re: Spoon frogs and other such craft work

Absolutely fine to post that here. It's a gorgeous little boat and a cracking photo. I looked up where it is - Bloody Hell, Oz is a vast place! I went to Brisbane for four days a while back and remember feeling relieved when the aircraft made landfall over western Australia only to be equally let do...

Re: Spoon frogs and other such craft work

I have a particular fondness for his clock at home (the one in the kitchen) which is basically a vine which has surrounded the clock.... Vine 1.JPG Vine 2.JPG Made from hammered steel, powder coated green then hand finished. It's actually six parts with the joins hidden behind leaves. The centre se...
