And do you know what the crazy thing is? We had a look at a A22 in with the mod police last week. Thought it was an engine fault,
Turned out to be a battery cable, the boat has to get delivered by road from Plymouth to MST in Liverpool to have a battery cable change! I could have done it in a hour or 2. Who comes up with these crazy contracts!

Turbo u know what the MOD is like I was keeping boats better maintained but had to send them to a boat yard and the mod expense to tell me that nothing needed doing or they would do a rubbish job that wouldn't last 6 months and then they ask well what do you know why the glue failed...... answer is I repaired life rafts and ribs and glue breakdown is part of it. So nothing surprises. Just a waste of public money. Grr.
