That's crappy...I guess now it's trying to keep calm, call and email insurers, get quotes for repair or even retube...

Then sit back have a beer and try not to let it get to you.....

What was the point in doing that?
Its just mindless, spiteful t**ttishness.
Why do that to someone else's property?
It can't be much of a high.

Do they still have the birch on the IoM, (or are offenders forced to listen to Rick Wakeman play keyboard)?

I'm several stages angrier than birching. I spent a huge amount of time last summer re-fitting this boat for a marine conservation charity. I hate people sometimes.
There's no CCTV, most of the boats don't even have wheel clamps as "this kind of thing doesn't happen on the Isle of Man".
