Yee hahh, nice one. Now you can start spending more money on all the other toys and gadgets.

Would like to see some action shots from around the Islands.
Have fun.

Well having zero experience I don't intend to be too adventurous just yet and also remember we are heading towards winter... and it hasn't got a roof! so probably no spectacular photos for a while yet as I'll be taking it easy for a while, but no doubt I will find something to take the odd picture of

Not so much the slips that are the problem (though even those aren't great) its the roads!

The trailer is built on Land Rover hubs and wheels so replacement bearings etc are easy to come by in this part of the world

its the roads
there ya go again!-if you were in the uk you'd be on a trade descriptions act offence.Thems not roads! they are a linear collection of random bits of loose rock driven over by aspiring Formula 1 drivers in landrovers trying for pole position. And those are the "A" roads.
Enjoy the boat.
