Tim, rogue isn't far off the mark there, think you might struggle to tow that with a little car.

Hope the Pompey uni crowd are going to come along to the churchillian meets.

I got an email from the seller this afternoon; she says she has changed her mind now, and because I have been too slow in sending a deposit she won't sell the boat to me. This is exteremly anoying - I've been running around trying to sort out logisitcs, money etc......!

As ebay is a "legally binding contract" can't I "force" her to sell it to me?

Update:
just phoned the seller. She is actually a he....
He says he's sold the boat to someone else becasue I didn't phone him quick enough (bollocks!).
There's no way he's sold the boat. This is this guys first time on ebay - a time waster!

Sorry to hear this Tim. I'm a great believer in 'fate' and maybe this one didn't work out cos there's an even better one around the corner!

What a sickener, make sure you put the boot in with the feedback Tim.

If Louise worked for the Samaritans I reckon she'd get a 100% success rate!!
