Tim - no, he sold it on after his summer plans went awry. His better half telling him he was off to France for the summer! I think I paid a little less than he paid you, which is fine by me!

I've priced up mudguards and they look to be no more than 20 a side, same for bearings, a quick google shows trailer rollers about a tenner so 100 could probobly sort out that, and to be fair I wont be towing it anywhere for a while after getting it anyway.

Any other advise/opinions most welcome!
There's a LHS mudguard on the A303 near Chard if you fancy saving 20.

Water now added. It's a very quick little Searider - only had time for a quick try out but it drove very nicely. Bit of work to be done over next few months to replace lifelines and put on a new rubbing strake and some wear patches on tube tops - and for the winter sort out the cosmetics of the hull, fix the numerous minor dings/chips and hopefully flowcoat it too.
