Re: Bluebird Runs 2019

Obviously good luck from me and my side. If anyone can do it i am sure your the man. I am not a fan of messy press so hope we can avoid that.

She is 15 now but has been involved since she was 3 y...

Re: Bluebird Runs 2019

Good point made there Jags. Over the years we have been hounded by people asking why the rebuild is taking so long. When invited to come along and get their hands dirty to speed up the process they went strangely silent but still expect us to soldier on and present them with a boat to look at locked...

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

As I have said on several threads before I don't get involved with the politics of the boat. I joined the project for 2 reasons. 1. to strip down a scrap boat. 2. To rebuild that boat into a fully functional machine. In my 15th year now but here is my take on the situation for what its worth. Put th...

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

Just been on the local news about it. Just some footage from Bute and the due to unexpected circumstances etc. Dont think it came as much of a shock to most though. Hopefully next year.

He obviously hasn't heard about my magic shed. If you need anything ask Rob first. Will fetch it in at the weekend. Saves me a stamp as well so all is good.

Re: Across The Lake

I have a spare watchable copy. Its laid about for a few years but I ran it through my disc player today and it played right through.
If you would like to drop me a private e mail with you postal details I will pop it in the post for you.

Re: joke of the day

I used to do a bit of stand up in my local Fellowship club back in the 80's but that is also the time the P.C brigade were taking hold and my material was frowned upon. One that used to go down well was about little Paddy Murphy going to the antiques road show with a big parcel under his arm. When h...

To the next step. Well said Richie. Lets see if we can move forward without all of these pointless arguments and get our boat to the point of where she should be. This will only be achieved by the hard work of the team and support of the public. Let us do our bit and leave the politics to those who ...
