I had this guy turn up to buy a 14' fibreglass clinker fishing boat with a 40 Evinrude I had. He offered this and that, wanted to exclude the life jackets then include them bla bla bla......He just wore me down and we ended up doing a deal for cash for well below what I wanted, but was forced to sell as I was using my parents driveway for storage.
He drove off with trailer hitched to the back of his Granada MK2. I thought, thank God! and went off to make a cuppa.
10 mins later there's a knock at the door. I open it and it's him standing there.
"The wheel on the trailer's seized just down the road" he says. I said, "well, what do expect for the money you paid me" and shut the door in his face. He was never seen again.
For over two weeks, every time I went past the 40' skid mark left on the road I had a little grin to myself
