I'm not supporting the £1200 for a 14yr old SIB (that one will actually be 15 in 6wks as a matter of interest) but given the 2014 retail of an Aerotec was £2687 and most dealers were selling around £2300 then just 3yrs earlier there was something *very* special about your £1250 inc delivery deal... way out of the norm.

I have found the buttons now Fenlander.. although I donít have the nuts or washers any more. But those are easy to source. If these are suitable.. arrange a courier and we can do that by PM ..and you can have the Trem setup for free. Why ? Money means nothing to me.. what means more to me is

I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gullís way and the whaleís way where the windís like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trickís over.


And I have certainly read a merry yarn lately




Edit..just seen your post with the plastic bits.. I donít have those..its just as is in the photos..plus the wheels etc ..but its all free if you can use it ..but to you only .. for anyone else..its Max prices

Gurnard that's very kind and I've already PM'd you. I'm not one to take advantage so we'll sort a donation to RNLI or whoever... or a meal/chat/drink at Tayvallich next year.

No problem Fenlander.. I replied to your PM so you should have my email address now.. its easier to correspond that way. I will settle for your offer to meet you a day at Tayvallich next year..I would be interested in seeing an aerotec.. and I have been meaning to visit Eilean Mor to photograph its old chapel ruins for a few years now. Its one of the islands at the mouth of Loch Sween. A good excuse to do so next year

cheers

Its a work of art - he managed to get the opening line to include "over inflated" as well!

For clarification too.. I have been in touch with Fenlander and the wheels are boxed ..waiting for collection. Im sure Fenlander will report back if its a box of bricks Im sending..but its not..it is a free set of wheels.. I have little use for them..and as he will use them ..I have no problem helping anyone.

I enjoy our debates .. and I hope they enlighten others on the things we debate about ..even though our opinions sometimes differ...but I do confess .. I can go off topic at times.

Do I need to apply for trade membership for a freebie Poly ?

Have we suffered a setting aside?

Anyway that box reminds me... not that I've ordered of course... of the ads that would say "sent under plain cover"!

Mrs Fenlander will think Christmas has arrived early!

The wheels arrived safely today and a trial fitting has already been undertaken. I will hopefully be fully testing them together with my new wetsuit pants this Friday.

Many thanks to The Gurnard for his selfless generosity in sending the wheels..
