Thats really cool to see, I dont think I've seen any old pics of the instrument panel that were good enough to read the sticky labels.

Fortunately we have enough pics plus sufficient knowledge of the boat's operating procedure and systems to work it all out. Credit must go to Mike though. The cockpit instruments and associated fittings really are his baby. The rest of us just need to keep building him somewhere to bolt it all.

Stand by - I'll have to measure. And I'll mail it privately because contractually I'm not supposed to divulge such things.

hi

What a wonderful insight we received today, into the entire Bluebird Legend.
The photo of Donalds St.Christopher medal and his inscribed lighter was something of a real special treat to see !

I never knew these items were ever recovered, let alone see a photo of them. the photo is spectactular....

Lets appreciate the fantastic work of Bill and the Entire Team who continue to bring the Legend back to life, and also for sharing the journey with us all !!!!!

thanks ......

Thanks for that - much appreciated. We also recovered his pocket change and his St Christopher keyring, which Gina gave to me and I wear it in a gold setting on a chain around my neck. It's a treasured posession.

If I aint mistaken the lighter is a Dunhill Rollagas engine turned finish around 1965-bet you it still works as well!-well after a service by Dunhills anyway-do they have the lighter or was it retained by Gina?-yeah I know I'm a sad individual-I collect them! :)
