Well, some good news and bad news.

Couldn't pick up the boat as the trailer was rather, well how can I say it - I won't see the pictures and work out what is missing!

Good news

Well after a little heart ache - the garage (thank you spike) have pulled out all the stops and managed to get all the bits we need - basically all the mechanical bits and they will fit it on Monday (week).

What's money for anyway?

At the end of the day, we will end up with a new (machanically anyway) trailer.

The best bit is, that after spending that money, you dunk it in the sea and it all starts to rust to buggery again.
