maybe it can be permanently mounted somewhere near the lake?
Unless I'm mistaken it's made of thin steel so it wouldn't last long in the weather.

I think the plan is to house it by the lake in a purpose built boat shed? Something like that, anyway.

A bit of video of the celebrations/replica/Gina etc-

Sorry to drag this old thread up - thought it would be better to post here, rather than starting a new one. Regarding the replica which was built for Dumbleyung, and where it would be housed; here is your answer: http://dumbleyungbluebird.com.au/2016/0 ... -new-home/
The whole website will probably be of interest to everyone here. The replica has since been taken off of the trailer, and mounted properly.

Cheers.

As I'm sure most of you will know already, the Aussies are getting right behind the anniversary of Donald's 'double' in a big way, and they are busy having a static display replica of the '64 spec K7 built...

Looking very familiar already!
True!
The Australians are and have been celebrating the double in a big way since October with Gina flying out to attend the Motor Classics show which had a big display on Donald Campbell C.B.E and his amazing achievements. Gina is also flying out again to help them mark the 31-12-2014 as she is amazed by the lengths they are going to out there. :mrgreen:
