Shhhhh!

Just washed the boat + used the magic 303 stuff on a side i had not done...
Boat was covered in nasty leafs and mud and stuff, ewwww etc

Anyway, Who stole the water!!!

P.s. do flares really only work up till round the expiry date, or is this more precaution.. my dad has loads of them, and has a batch which is good till 2002... im thinking of sticking them in a container on my boat, the rocket shutes are in a sealed plastic container, i rather doubt they will go off...

Also, how do you dispose of them? Also has two hand held flares, i myself would not go out and spend a whole load of money on new ones, as i dont go that far out... but you never know.. something usefull to carry, but carry old ones.. would they still work?

I'll take a picture of the boat on trailer

Yes probably, but think on it this way, when you really need to let off a flare in anger do you want to rely on probably?

On our Sea Survival course about 50% of out dated flares failed Also if they do work they suffer from colour fade, Red is more of a pink

I always suggest keeping the recently outdated one's along side the new.

Disposal, the coastguard will take them off of you.

Yey! Broke it again!

Flywheel key has split off again, the baddy being the locknut coming undone ever so slightly (been used once to often), allowing the washer to act like a bearing for the flywheel to move on, had a single backfire/sneeze through the exhaust and it broke.. it has worn down a slight bit of the shaft it fits onto, so it doesn't hold it in its place properly, because the washer is also worn... going to get a new locknut + washer + Key .. sigh..
Might as well get a stock of keys by the sound of it

Your' spending all this money on this engine; get rid of it - invest in a second hand motor - have a look on ebay!
