Re: Technical Talk

I always thought those sponsons were a brilliant design and Ken once told me they were the only piece of the boat he designed then never had to look at again. I'd long wondered on what basis the curved outer faces were designed and eagerly awaited the drawings. That's when the trouble started becaus...

Re: New Members

BBP members used to get staff discount at the Bluebird cafe but for some reason the staff we knew in 2001 don't seem to be there any longer. Wonder where they went, it was only yesterday, after all.

Re: Doing a bit to help publicity for the project

Sorry I wasn't able to make it. The rest of us were in Lincoln for a presentation. Some folks down there very kindly raised then donated a few quid towards the rebuild and they asked a long time ago if we'd collect it in person. By the time the hangover had evaporated and we made it back up the A1 i...

Re: Doing a bit to help publicity for the project

Ernie,

There's always our works van if you get stuck. It's only up the road and it's not being used this weekend.

Re: Doing a bit to help publicity for the project

That is the most amazing model I've ever seen! One day when we get done with our 1:1 scale boat I'd like to build something like that.

Re: A Picture paints a thousand words/Technical Talk
