Many Thanks

Many thanks to the following people who have been really helpful - apologies if I have forgotten anyone!!!

Nasher
Paul Tilley
Bob - Suzuki dealer in Guernsey
Erin

And of course to everyone who has believed me and stuck up for me.

Extra special mention must go to John Price at Quinquari for LENDING me a HUGE triple axle trailer for a full week to get my boat back. Hell of a nice bloke - very professional and a most impressive operation. He didn't warn me about the roads where he lives though - driving to Weymouth was a bit on an anti climax after St Davids - Solva and Newgale. How the hell he gets those monster Humbers down those lanes is beyond me!!!

Of course a trailer was supposed to have been supplied with the boat....

That would have been an interesting cross-chanel passage with trailer attached!

The eagle has landed! Congratulations Codprawn.

Wish you happy times.

Looking forward to the warts and all story... Are you expecting the trailer around 2008?

Cheers Codders, I hope it all lives up to expectation. Must be extremely satisfying to have actually got it home after all the grief and anxiety.

Whatever Vince if you can live with that excuse, fine. Dont expect any more favours from me and dont bother calling again.

The reason i didnt return your calls as this was never anything to do with me and it got to a point where it wasnt me you needed to speak to. Aso it was costing me time and money running around helping you when there was no way i was going to get paid.

i am not going any further with this on here but it would have been nice to know my efforts were appreciated.

Enjoy your boating.
