I hope the Journey will be suitably recorded in film and photo not only for posterity, but as stock for the "Bluebird on Bute" DVD we all know will be in the works...

In all seriousness though, have a safe, uneventful, journey and I hope K7 behaves for you.

She finally behaved on Saturday with a series of clean lights and good temp's. Only glitch was a blown gasket at the top of the water brake. We managed to squeak an o-ring on the bottom face but due to a machining error when it was made we can't do likewise at the top so tomorrow it gets a copper gasket and some anaerobic flange sealant. If it leaks after that it can stay leaking - we have a spill kit!

Might be an idea to wear your pit passes and we can tell the Cal Mac crew that you're friend not foe...

Hi team
Are there any plans to have video cameras in the cockpit filming a Donald's-eye view?
Cheers

We will video the instruments and pilots' actions but not a Ted or Stew's eye view.
