Very interesting, I take it everyone knows that Donald Campbell's Boat was recovered from the bottom of lake Coniston and restored last year to run on the lake again?

Funnily enough there is a new article on the BBC today about running it on Coniston as opposed to the Scottish Loch where they ran it recently.

Apparently there is a row brewing about the museum wanting to display it.

Yep, IIRC it was put in Loch Fad last year in August after restoration was finished.  Anyone know if they made it to Coniston Water with her yet?

No idea. It's a shame really as i think it would be great from a heritage point of view and also the amount of tourism it would generate would be amazing too.
