I think I can make out one under the nearest cherry picker in the big photo in Bob's posting?

Sorry for bumping this somewhat old topic...

We love continuing topics that were started some time back. There is always much more that can be said about QE2, and questions have the advantage of bringing in those who can help :) .

I have been on multiple other forums, where bumping old topics isn't really accepted, even on the small forums that I hosted if the topic was not signification certain members didn't like bumping. Even tough I never gave any warning points for it (unless it was just crap that didn't make any sense of course)

We always set out to be different in that regard because we realised discussions might go on for years as different people contributed!
We do things our own way round here, hope you enjoy it! I'm certainly enjoying your contributions.

I love it when something is done differently, and not to follow the big group when something just seems more right to do :)

Did they ever look to upgrade them to be useful?

Could they have been made more powerful within the existing housings?

Were QE2s propellers the most powerful in the world?
