Re: Carl Spencer

There's no doubt Carl died doing something he loved but he was supposed to die an old man in his bed. Not like this. We'd talked about him hanging up his fins and he reckoned he was only a couple of years away.

Re: Mail on Sunday

Yeah - I was talking with one of the senior engineers in charge of going over our safety policies last week and he said, once you get around the type 1 idiots and the type 2 idiots you only need common sense after that. What's the difference, I wanted to know. Type 1 idiots are just idiots, he told ...

Carl Spencer

It seems we have lost a very dear friend. Carl tragically lost his life in a diving accident yesterday. Will tell you more when I know it. Condolences to Vicky and the kids.

We towed her - well, most of her - on the public highway with a Daihatso Fourtrak one time and almost got arrested. No, I think we'll have a big, juicy truck this time.

Re: Mail on Sunday

It was a nice piece though what isn't obvious is that we spent all of Friday afternoon and most of the evening working with the Mail on Sunday guys to get it right. We had to light and set up the workshop then the pics were taken followed by an hour of tweaking them on the Apple Mac. Several were th...

Re: Chemetall Chocolate Sauce, and other delights.

Duralac is a barium chromate compound and that's not nice. I'll get you the spec on the Naftoseal if you like, it's a sulphite and, though I'd not recommend you eat it, it's not as nasty as barium.

Re: Chemetall Chocolate Sauce, and other delights.

Playing with dodgy chemicals in the comfort of our own workshop is one thing but selling them on to unsuspecting Land-Rover owners might be our undoing. Besides, if you go to any aerospace supplier, LAS Aerospace is as good as any, and look up jointing compounds you'll find suitable applications to ...

Re: A few questions

Naomi, if you go to www.Bluebirdproject.com you'll find every detail of the project since Bluebird was discovered in 2001. The museum actually has its building, the money was raised and the building is up but the rebuild project is always in need of extra funds as it's run entirely by volunteers and...
