Re: Not about the Boat

My favourite was that Canadian doctor who told the world that stomach ulcers were caused by a bacterium, helicobacter pylori, or something. The medical profession laughed at his madness because everyone knew bacteria couldn't exists in the acid conditions found in the human stomach. So what did he d...

Re: Want to own a part of history ?

And thanks to Herr Von Jetpump who takes filthy, dirty paint flakes and lovingly crafts them into these amazing collector's pieces. There's no telling how many will eventually come up for sale because there aren't that many big flakes that can be dispalyed in this way and a number are already set as...

Re: New Members

Ernie, Good to talk today and the model is absolutely fantastic. What an amazing thing it would be to have it out pleasing the crowds while the rest of us spanner furiously at the bigger version in the hope of having it ready dance before the tourists get bored and go home. If our 1:1 scale model pe...

Re: 42 years to the day.

Agreed - my chuckle-muscles have only just returned to normal too. I can't remember the last time I laughed so much. Well, not since the team last sat around a log fire in the Sun Inn enjoying the finest of cameraderie. A great weekend and one to be remembered.

Re: New Members

Thanks to Bill and all the team.(Not forgetting all those businesses that have helped).

And thanks to all those people out there who take an interest. This would be a lonely quest without you.

Re: original streeing wheel

The instrument panel is most likely down there somewhere and I'm sure we'll have another look for it one day. It's also conceivable that it's got itelf completely buried. Some of the parts we recovered were barely visible and this can be annoying because the sonar can often see through the mud to a ...

Re: Dead Metal

Don't worry, you'll be able to get properly close. I even wanted to get some dusters and have the museum hire them out so the public could keep K7 shiny but they're worried about the pait wearing out. They're no fun those museologists. But dent one of our panels and we'll be after you with a rivet g...

Radio would cost us a fortune and be a pain in the whatnots to orgasnise / operate. Not only is the SMS infrastructure already in place we can use it to generate some ££ to help run our boat. Tough if you're on Orange, go get a Vodafone pay as you go!

Re: Active support at Coniston 2010

I like this - keep the daft ideas coming. Sooner or later there'll be a stroke of genius amongst them. We all know about the blind squirrel... it'll always find the occasional acorn. I like the idea of disseminating info via SMS with the recipients paying for the privilege. Running this machine is g...
