This one won’t go away, perhaps it’s the secret desire I have to have an office with a difference, or even the idea that its the weird and wonderful that makes the world go around. Who didn’t have a tree house or a shack they called the ‘gang hut’?
As a boy I ‘evaporated time’ in industrial helpings creeping around the whistling, creaking hull of a Shackleton (Mk 3) parked up for the station fire service to gradually incinerate with humane purpose. I crossed oceans hunting for Russian submarines with my trusty crew (Colin and Rover). One dream was to have the fuselage as… I guess we are on the same page here; but moving on, to have a hull that would move, and with a history like ‘the Muffin’? Now there’s a dream with floats.
Luis dropped me a line from Florida asking me to pass the word around – ‘maybe raise a little interest. Does he have a good plan and do we think he will raise the green to see this project on the water with glasses tinkling, visitors tripping up and down the gangway – in out of what’s left of a Boeing 307 Stratoliner?
I don’t know but if this captures your imagination… why not? Would Boeing care to lend a helping hand; perhaps Luis needs a Patron, someone sprinkled with a little influencial stardust who can’t stay away from things that fly and/or float? C’mon, we all have dreams….
