There might be grounds for criticism in the way that the BBP Operations have proceeded
Nope... And big thanks to the irrepressible, Sir Malcolm and the op's team for steering us this far.

As a new member, I must say I'm amazed by the tenacity and enthusiasm that the team have put into the Bluebird recovery and rebuild project. Very well done.
I've followed progress from a distance (bought the DVD's etc.) but would love to be there when the boat runs again on Coniston. Is there an approximate projected or anticipated date for the first run, or am I being completely naive? I'd hate to miss it!

The million-dollar question... and the answer is, we don't know. But be assured of one thing. There's no danger of you missing it! Our new media partner will be damn sure you can't get away from it.

From now onwards every request to be told "the date" should come on a signed twenty pound note. :roll:

If Bill does not know then I do not either! :D

Nothing can be done in secret with a large jet powered blue boat and there will be plenty of time to gauge when the powered runs will start. Driving it away from the North East will not go unnoticed.

Unless we have to make a secret, dawn departure for Dumbelyung...

Hi from FRED,

Wouldn't it be nice to try and make it for the 10th Anniversary on 12th September 2011. Maybe Donald could get his own Head Line just once more.

Regards, to all, Fred

Not sure that an anniversary of Donald's funeral has a lot to do with the boat really, and media-wise it'd also be the day after the tenth anniversary of 9/11, which might be best avoided.

I always say that the 'when..?' question should have a fine attached to it, especially when asked by any visitors to the workshop whom we can then lock in until they make a donation in penance! :lol:

I thought it would be a FAQ! And the £20 note is in the post!

I am sure that there are many appropriate dates on which to re-float K7 .......... and the members of this forum will be able to real them off without any requirement to go to reference material - Paul, Neil, Fred, Polo, BluebirdK7, etc ...

Just remember though that the BBP will not have freedom to choose any of the 365 (or 366) days in the year to go above 10 mph, which will herald the proving trial. But there is nothing to stop a float out as this would be outwith the bye law requirement. ;)

Are there any other questions which may be frequent but do not have an answer? :lol:
