Different scenario with the Landy, which ran out half way up Braye Road this afternoon.
Chandler-- obviously short of a spare containers then!
Instructor-- Makes mental note---'Must remember to tell peeps to carry spare fuel'
Broker-- Broke and Landy's recently?
Islander-- Yep, that seems obvious!
Snarf Snarf!

For a second ever post that is very insightful, and for your next trick?

The poor old landy is a hard working lady and I do not treat her well, she takes me through wind and snow, ice and mud, over rocks and through surf.

Mind you, just like on the boat I do carry spare fuel!

Although there was that time over Christmas when she ran out at the crucial moment on the slipway.
