Re: Happy Birthday, Donald!!

Indeed... As one esteemed historian pointed out - everything that has happened regarding Donald since 2001 has happened because of the BBP and we're very proud of that. Every day he stares down at us from the wall of K7 's workshop and when passers by ask what we're doing we just point at him. Soon ...

Re: What have forum members been up to?

What about other bits? Glass, interior trim, etc? Are they readily available in Canada?

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

Predator is half the weight of the big tin machine. We'll do it standing on our heads. :lol:

Thought you'd be chomping at the bitt to go after the elusive escaped canopy.

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

Well now that we have the RHIB re commissioned complete with its fancy sonar suite, I would personally love re commission and also dive off Predator, kitting into a twinset on a RHIB as it pitches and rolls is interesting. The little boat is for blasting out in the evening to catch supper or have a...

That's a deliciously understated rig. Lovely job.

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

I still dive my old Cycklons on shallow stuff. The young-uns like their colour-coordinated bling but they can't rebuild their valves with one hand in a bucket of seawater on the deck of a rolling boat and, get this, they allow strangers to service their kit! Would they let someone else pack their pa...

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

Long time AP Valves/ AP Diving user here Same here - a daft AP Valves story for you. The 2001 BBP expedition to lift the wreckage was the first all rebreather exped ever so we got quite pally with Martin Parker, owner of AP Valves as he supported our mostly frozen 'breathers with spares while we sp...

Hi Dave, welcome. There's some really great model makers in here plus a thread on K7 and other models and if you need to know anything about the real thing just ask.

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

Bill, as a voice of reason, can I pretty please with sugar on top ask you to pull the post down and burn it ? It serves nothing more than to build walls higher and dig trenches deeper :cry: if it did transpire that Ruskin was “Saville’esque” I am sure folk could look it up for themselves ? It just ...

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

Why would the RM want to spite you actually running on Bute in 2022 .....It would cost them money in legal fees they don’t have and they would look even more stupid and petty than they already do They wouldn't be spiting us - we've had a great time running K7 in 2018 and, though we'd enjoy doing it...
