Re: Return to the Water

Absolutely anyone with a modicum of common sense knows that it’s the right thing to do to run the old girl on Coniston There you go - you just answered your own question. There's no common sense, so unless you know of a process to instil it in those who have none I doubt very much you'd do any bett...

Re: Return to the Water

if Coniston not going to allow any running is there any point displaying k7 at the Ruskin? Don't even go there - it certainly won't be going into the Ruskin until the proving trial is completed.

Re: Return to the Water

Re: What have forum members been up to?

It looks amazing... if we didn't have a boat to build I'd love to come and do some spannering on the engines - or make the tea.
