Couldn't see what all the fuss was about, myself. Some clothes needed folding and he'd brought a woman. Problem solved... :lol:
Almost a good 'Donald Trump moment' by the sounds of it, before we had even heard of them.

In fact Bill, you might feel ready to apply for the job to run America, not just North Shields.

Now I thought you might have added a Donald Trump favourite, that Americans in America are being over run by Mexicans and the other M? Is the management of wall building amongst your skill set, Bill?

Building a wall would be simple enough but have you seen how well those damn Mexicans can dig a tunnel?

The ingenious ba*****s are good at mining? Did not expect that.

As Guy Martin has already knighted Richard Noble, may I suggest that the Palace is invited to honour the engineer on the Thrust 2 programme and various other speed and flight related efforts ..... JOHN ACKROYD. You may wish to put forward others, however John will be 80 next year and deserves to be recognised for his many "engineering achievements".

There will need to be support from others when applying to HMG. I trust some others will provide written endorsements.

Possibly very true. And I used to spend many of my days of the week sitting at a desk taking actions as only a 'senior manager' could. [Then I became an 'Associate Director'].

This thread is taking a direction well away from the title, so ....... apart from Coniston records week for boats; Speedweek end on ice in Sweden; Lake Gairdner speed trials in the outback; ................. what news if any from British workshops, garages and basements on projects for 2017?

Well we've got the canopy frame mostly built and from there it's off to a 3D CAD design company to have the surface developed for the canopy itself. That will then be routed from MDF, coated with resin and used to vac-form the bubble part - looking forward to that. The guys now have the main tank fitting properly so that leaves a single fuel line to fettle and we're ready for engine runs in the hull, and we have a Viper engine coming in for a tune-up sometime soon.
