shouldn't worry, Rogue Wave will be along shortly to put it back on the wheels, source a spare trailer and get him going again. What an outstanding chap, eh Colin!

Perhaps we should link the thread about trailer safety cables to this one - maybe this is another application of that wire that they haven't considered!

Thanks for the picture, Phil. I was laughing so much that it was at least an hour before I could pick up the phone to instruct my Brief. I am looking forward to a nice couple of months in the Carribean on the proceeds of the impending libel action. Perhaps you might consider an out of court settlement?

Better be careful Phil as David Manning 'appears to talk sense'.
