As it's in debate,without including any connection,registration etc (or lack of) to Ian Sharlot surely the use of the engine on the Sidmouth Lifeboat would count as commercial use and drop the warranty down to 1 year anyway.

having purchased a few bits over the years my feelings are that if i've had something for a few months and it went wrong, bitter as it may be i would have to swollow, if i found something wrong straight away i would back it straight away. all the guys seem standup and honest, but shit still happens to these people as well.

3. Or was the motor run and then runout found on the shaft, after the rod had been thrown?
The thread isn't immediately clear on which of the three possible scenarios is the correct one.
Seconded. What was the sequence of events?

You may have given up posting in this thread Jono but I hope you are still reading.

I have nothing but the highest regard for Jono. What other trade member will come across a difficulty and put it out there for discussion and opinion from his possible client base? Fair play to you Jono.

We can see here that he is trying to do what is right rather than what is simply legal.

I can personally vouch for the fact that Jono and PBS are trustworthy and try to do the best for their customers. I bought a boat from Jono last year and both he and I danced around the trust element of the sale (both not knowing each other). I eventually paid all monies up front and waited patiently for the ferry from Wales to deliver my boat to Dublin. Said boat duly arrived and was and is fantastic - all that Jono had said.

Yet again Jono you are being decent, up front and honest in this deal. You have done nothing wrong. As others have said - shit happens - but this particular load just happened on someone else's patch - not your problem Jono!

I must say that I have had excellent responses from Barrus when I had a succession of leg failures. 4 free legs!!
And all but the first leg were out-of-warranty.

Surely this will come down to a case of while you may feel bad it broke, there is nothing that you could have done , or realistically can do now. Hindsight is a wonderful thing - 'if only this & that etc'.

Like has been said stuff breaks - sometimes its the day after you buy it , sometimes its years.

If you want a warranty buy it new & pay the costs that go with it. All credit for clearly feeling a degree of guilt about it (athough unwarranted in my opinion).

Lets be honest 250, or what ever you made brokerage, wont make a bugger of differance to the cost of fixing it, & the purchaser has had some bad luck - these things happen to us all, hopefully rarely in the boating world but every so often they just do..............

PS - just coz he 'sounds' honest doesn't mean he is - he may be , but he may not - cynical I know but thats my experience
