Nu henjin!!!

Oh how exciting and disapointing all at the same time!!

Deposit paid - its mine!
Tow boat to Manchester from London - Nightmare traffic
See Merc dealer - not what I'm expecting/worrying
See new engine for first time - BIG!!
Get told it might be done in one day - result!
Waste day in Manchester - well can you think of anywhere else?
Ring at 1700 - gutted, its not ready
Go to parental unit - get nagged
Ring up next day - gutted its still not ready
Bad news - VHF has been stolen
Arrived at arranged time - gutted its still not ready
Throttle on the "wrong side" - Dealer says; "I like it on the left hand side though!!! - Incredulous!!
Time ticking on - end up helping fit my own engine
Engine very close to A frame - Dealer says its fine
Engine cowling fitted - Well aren't I a smug b*st*rd - Engine wont fit under a frame
Dealer says it not his fault - Nice!
Dealer can't fit engine cowel - part missing
Dealer will send part in post and say I can fit it myself- I'm paying how much for this??
Pay lot of money - no discout for theft, delays, or dealer incompetence!!
Travel to London on Friday evening - Nightmare traffic
Sea trials - no fuel?? Theiving b*st*rds stole VHF and tank of fuel!!!
Engine fault - Smart craft guages not calibrated

Goes like stink, very quite, uses very little fuel, very poor service - IS IT ALWAYS LIKE THIS????????????????

That looks huge under your A-frame

Was it in the dealer's compound when the VHF and fuel were nicked? If it was I'd be claiming from their insurance.

If you leave a car at a garage onvernight whilst a dealer is working on it and stuff was nicked who would you blame? The dealer of course. They are SUPPOSED to have insurance to cover it whilst in their possession. Why should it be any different for boats???

You can tell the throttle is designed for RHS fitment cos the kill switch is pointing the wrong way now. What a tit.
