May I have a little rant

Argh
If I moan any more about sibs at home my wife says she will open a ebay account and put all my boating gear on for 10.00 buy it now,
So here goes
Got a honwave airdeck happy with that
Bought a bravo 12bst hp as the airdeck is too hard to blow up with a foot pump, took my rig on 2 boating hoildays this year and first one the pumped worked for 5 mins and the blew up, got it repaired and it lasted 30 seconds before it sounded like a bag of spanners so no boating as I'd left the foot pump at home both times, also had major agg with the wife as the boat will only fit in my outlander which she hates as the seats are to hard
Bought some of them expensive transom wheels from pacer marine, wheels were useless on anything other than Tarmac, bought some ballon tyres from wheeleeze which are great but had to get the transome axles lengthened, total cost another 180
Super annoyed that the coiles pacer supplied we're not stainless steel and not have horrible rust marks on the airdeck floor
I seem to have spent the whole year shelling out for 1 hours boating
Spose I'm ready for 2015
Oh and watch out if you capsize a honwave airdeck as the transom wheel pins will fall out and your wheels will float off(don't ask)

Love sibbing, and sorry for moaning

you have a good bitch and moan on here, as it would be a shame to have your toys taken off you at this stage! its sad to say that a lot of things bought nowadays simply arent up to the job, and need either replacing or modifying, but i feel its worth saying that you need to really give yourself time to try things out at home, and always consider the what ifs, and secure everything - for example the pins which could have been drilled and had some thin chord tied through them. anyhow, keep quiet to the mrs and lets hope your luck improves soon.

It's a boat thing !
Put my boat in the water after 50 weeks looking forward to another two weeks of fun just like last August..... Twetting 135 that ran like a sewing machine last year ran lumpy and was a pig to start for 12 1/2 days in spite of 6 new plugs (25), Redex, drained carbs etc etc barely got me out on skis but was ok for the wife/kids which led to the questioning of my full English each morning.
Anchored the thing off the beach on the second to last day where it got a bit of a battering & bugger me if it didn't fly for a day & a half. Obviously dislodged the microscopic crap in the carbs... huge grin for a few hours.
Got down to Clyde Outboards to pick up my 15hp Mercury on the way home & get my 20hp Tohatsu first serviced. While there I asked Cameron to change the gearbox oil on the 135 & water drained out so came home minus the gearbox....

Still wonder what I did with my money before I had kids/boats .....

Just a suggestion - but drill out the end of the wheel pins and get a stainless steel R clip through the hole.

We all have a run of bad luck sometimes
If you want some thing that will do the job just make it your self at least then it isnt mass produced and lacking in quality and will do the job you want it to do .

I have just spent the past 6 mths getting my hard boat ready for some decent fishing time , i have replaced the trailer - engine - nav lights - vhf - gps - and a load of other ods and sods also sorted out the sib and outboard.
We managed a few good trips and smoothed out the nigly faults but now the gear box go on the van has gone
So now i cant tow the hard boat or take the sib out and have another 4 weeks before i can get the van sorted for another 1k - and ime stuck with a borrowed smart car to get to work
And yes i have tried to fit the sib in the smart car but no it wont fit
it comes to us all
