I like both the progress vids but I thought you should have held back with the first one until the dry build was done, then do the second one covering the chocky sauce build. Still, what do I know?

I trust you'll be doing a complete video once K7 is finished, from finding her, through fixing her to running her once again? Tho it'll probably need to be longer than all 3 Lord of the Rings put together!!

I loved all those images .. pretty dramatic stuff !

the music complemented the photo's perfectly - what is the music and by whom ?

p.s. well done !

Mike, that is a really great video and (as has already been observed) very appropriate music. I think it's a wonderfully atmospheric pictorial record of the final 1966/7 attempt and I doubt it could have been produced more professionally (so less of the "threw together" self-deprecation :D )

Interesting soundtrack. I thought You Tube stripped out the use of copyright audio on home made movies

Newish vid has appeared on youtube, some pics of k7 and cn7, nothing special apart from the bitching text at the end having a dig at the BBP.

I'm not a member on youtube but I think they deserve some comments gently reminding them that they've got it very wrong.

Just another of those who contradict themselves for fun. 'He was so much more than just a man who crashed a boat'. Yeah, yeah, we know and we're busy telling that to a whole new generation - in case you hadn't noticed. And as for anyone thinking he should have been left in peace up to his armpits in freezing mud, I'm sure he was. It's those left behind who weren't.

Yup, the polite response is to respectfully disagree with the comments expressed at the end of the video, and also to note that, where possible, bodies are recovered for a ceremony of remembrance and closure appropriate to the beliefs of families left behind.

That is what has happened here, just as it continues to happen as identifiable remains are recovered from World Wars II and I, as well as other conflicts, accidents and tragedies. As a society we try not to leave our loved ones behind.

The author of the clip also seems not to have noticed, or has chosen to ignore, that if it hadn't been the team that became BBP that found, raised and commenced restoration of K7 to full working order, then by now he or she could now be bidding for parts, genuine or otherwise, of K7 on ebay, along with equally genuine mementoes of Titanic and other tragedies for sale right now.

Through technology K7 recovery became a realistic option. Restoration seemed an un-realistic option, but BBP has proved that it isn't.

One thing that does come out of the video is how timeless the Norris designs for K7 & CN7 are.

CN7 is a totally stripped down shape, but is that rare thing, a beautiful machine; and moreover one that isn't designed to be beautiful, it just flows from the design.

K7 matured with the Gnat fin, and when up on her points is an equally thrilling, and an equally timeless design as CN7; and thanks to you guys making the BBP happen, we can all look forward to seeing her running again. Such an amazing achievement deserves better than lying wrecked at the bottom of a lake, and so did her Donald.

Well, Michael. That last video has to be one of your best yet. Not the usual YouTube picture quality either!!! Prodigious, man.
2 questions though. 1. How you gonna start the Orph if Bill isn't around with his big crank handle? :shock: I don't think the Red Arrow Gnats were started that way.
2. Are you sure this Orph isn't Donald's original? Looked like a load of old rivets coming out of the spout to me! Now that would be something :lol:
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer, are we Human or are we Dancer.
