In a moment of boredom today I thought I'd find out about getting the bearings done on the trailer for 'Streaker' my 4m Avon.
So on calling the local place ( who are usually very good) , found out its £16 a side for hub & bearings, and maybe £20 to fit them.
Great say I I'll bring it in next week . Final question - 'It is OK to leave the boat on the trailer ?' .....not really
I try & explain its a small boat, no weight etc .....
Nope cant do it with the boat in place .
HOW STUPID !
So I now will do it myself over the weekend , but as they aren't open on Friday to buy the hubs etc I cant do it then ! The plan was to whip off one side - nip up buy the 2 replacements , home and changed in an hour....... so it'll have to be Saturday .
My point is what do they expect me to do with the boat - leave it in the road infront of the house ?
Leave it in the river unattended
( and uninsured ! )
I'll go now ...........
