Corr blimey !

I don’t do piston heads as have never really needed to, always heard it was a fantastic forum with lots and lots of knowledge on performance motors though.

I don’t really have time to surf tut web these days, too busy !

Likewise with bookface, maybe pop on and see what folk have been up to, watching Rich M’s twanglings on the guitar is usually quite cool too 😊.

Brothers in arms next please Rich 👍

Next time you're at BBP HQ I'll show you some things you really won't believe!

But on a more encouraging note - it seems there's been some progress on the floor in the BB wing.

That can only be a good thing, perhaps we're moving forward at last. I shall email at once for the loading figures and then ask with pretty-please and a cherry on top if the facilities management folk will still look at it for us.

The problem isn't having the boat standing still, it's the horror story of turning the heavy lump through 90 degrees once it's through the door as anyone who has helped us get her out of her workshop will testify and we only have to get through about 30 degrees there!

Watch this space.

Good to see them taking action for once.

That said, the rest of the content of that page is a little.......how can I put it..... "interesting".

Well l've mailed and asked for the info we need so we'll see what it looks like when it arrives.

The worrying bit is the 'all anticipated loads' part because when l worked with the architect back in the day we agreed there was no real way to anticipate the loads so it was designed like a brick utility room and we know it wasn't built that way.

I'll be interested to see what loads have been anticipated because we couldn't do it.

Still, it's progress so we shall do what we can with it.

Was copyrighted music used as a soundtrack? I've had videos blocked and the sound removed by Warners before. I presume that is who WMG is.
