If it leaks air, it's old. If it's grey it's "recent".:-)

Looks like you'll have a good unit there Chris. I understand the weather's going to be quite whispy this w/e in the southwest. I'm going for a run in the SR from Fowey on Saturday. Can't wait. Unless it's chucking it down.

that was just before I pulled the tubes off it, they were well rotten, hole in back end I could get my hand into, great big patch on inside of bow, guess something must have been rubbing on it and worn through, the best chamber only stayed hard if I kept pumping it, you could hear the air leaking even while I was pumping. Bit now probs, I knew when I bought it the tubes were scrap, so at least i can choose what I go for, same with trailer and engine, so hopefully when it's done it will look the part.

weather forecast not great up this way for the weekend, I'm blaming Kerny n crew for organising a fishing trip, it always rains when he goes fishing
