I am a supporter of the current rebuild of Donald Campbell's Bluebird K7 and was a member of the Thrust 2 team in 1983 and have a lifelong interest in record breaking and motorsport (as well as aircraft!). Some years ago, I wrote to your father to seek information on the jet boat and also Miss Windermere V. At that time, I was working with the Windermere Steamboat Museum (where Miss Windermere IV was housed) and knew Norman Buckley's engineer, Arthur Henderson, who was also keen to find out if his former charge was still in existence.
I would be fascinated to know if either or both boats are still with Mr Fahey and, if so, whether it would be possible to get in touch. In particular I would like, if possible, to produce an historical feature about K8 and your father's experiences at Coniston as this attempt was, of course, contemporary with the LSR of Thrust 2.
Please feel free to PM me if that is more convenient than posting.
