Re: Looking Back In Time- Archive Bluebird Photos

Keith,

Something horrible has happened to your boat in the above picture. It's turned green, the engine seems to be at the wrong end and the sponsons look slightly long and flattened. If it's been in an accident I'm sure we can fix it for you.

Re: Looking Back In Time- Archive Bluebird Photos

As it happens this is one of the reasons why we've pushed to run the boat in spring or summer. Spannering on two and a half tons of cold metal in January with short days and cold nights absolutely has to be uncomfortable and bad for morale and that's when concentration suffers and mistakes result.

Ken and Lew actually advised Donald against pushing K7 to 300mph. They suggested he went ahead with a planned trip to Australia and they'd design him a new boat in the meantime. He didn't go for it.

I reckon he should give us that five and thruppence back. We're fixing his boat after he bent it, buying us a beer is the least he could do!

Not surprising really. Coniston in December / January is bloody freezing in my experience!

Re: Todays Photo

I was told that Dunhills couldn't bring the lighter back to working order because some of its internals had corroded and expanded the case. Bit of a shame really.

Re: Todays Photo

Thanks for that - much appreciated. We also recovered his pocket change and his St Christopher keyring, which Gina gave to me and I wear it in a gold setting on a chain around my neck. It's a treasured posession.
