Hi all,

Although I have made no secret of the fact that I don't want K7 to get her bottom wet again, I feel that I should congratulate all concerned for getting the result you wanted.

Keep up the good work restoring your 12" to the foot scale model, we will still be coming up to see her on the day she returns. We will be there for two weeks or so.

Regards to all, Fred

We'll get you a wash leather and a squeegee in that case and you can clean the water off her bottom before we tuck her up at night...

Congratulations to all concerned on the great news today. All concerned came up trumps.... I'm sure Don would be pleased... and the news comes almost 70 years since the people of Coniston got their wish to allow Sir Malcolm to run K4 on the lake in the summer of 39.... a nice symmetry with the projects own "Sir" Malcolm!

History is not just about what has been done, but what is being done - and what will be done.

A pivotal moment.

Well done All!

The news on the BBC was wonderful. I was inspired to search for information on Bluebird, and found this web site.

I love the lakes, and the Bluebird world speed record attempt was an event which I will never forget. I look forward eagerly to the timetable for the trial runs.
