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

What the reporter couldn't explain was where the figure of 35K came from - it's certainly massively inflated because that works out almost as much as the rent (that the museum doesn't pay). Then there's the fact that the reason the museum supposedly pays it in the first place is so that no one has t...

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

To extend your analogy, the repair work to K7, whilst substantial, is basically the same as taking a bumped car into a garage and replacing the bent panels. You will then owe the garage for whatever work it was pre-agreed you would pay them for, but you still clearly own the repaired article. Or, y...

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

Bearing in mind your age Bill... Damn cheek! You and I will fall out, Mr Lazenby I'm but a youngster. :lol: :lol: But you make a fair point that has been made many times and the team have instructions in the event that I wake up dead and provision will be made for the machine going forward in case ...

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

We, like many others, would love to see Bluebird run again on Coniston Water. Coniston is one of the busiest lakes in England, so prior to any runs the security and integrity of the craft, operator safety and community impact implications must be fully considered, and risk assessed. Just wondering ...

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

Permanent means no Science Museum or Beaulieu. Doesn't mean we don't take her out and run her on water.

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

Don't recall anyone saying it would run on Loch Fad on the Isle of Bute TWICE before running on Coniston THEN going into the museum?? Neither does anyone else but we do remember being formally invited to run on Coniston Water in July 2019 only to have that event cancelled due to 'unforeseen circums...

Re: Visit to North Shields- model makers.

God I feel old. First off all this silliness and now after years of trying to keep up with the beer swilling Tyneside Massive I find out they have switched to LIGHT beer.... You horribly insensitive lot. That beer was offered as a gift from people of the SOUTH . They meant well and travelled far fr...

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

I'll say something, we've been extremely patient so far. We've worked damned hard and whatever anyone says the deal has always been that we'd build a boat, it would run on Coniston Water and THEN it would go into the museum. They should have been on this just as hard as we have been, knocking down e...
