Balls! Thought I'd done my bit with the trailer service repacking them. It'd be just my luck for them to fail half way to Scotland!

For a natural born worrier like me this boating game is a NIGHTMARE.

I keep a spare set (or two) in the boat box that always goes with me - I've shrink wrapped them for long term protection.

I don't carry all the required tools to replace a set on the roadside, but the Green Flag man does and I can hand him the bearings he needs to make it all work again
