I did offer to pay his fuel to plymouth from Bristol , but its a long trip ,

Going to talk gain in the morn . I could offer a hotel or to pay the full asking price if he brings it all the way no haggling if its all good .

Problem is I don't ask anyone to do anything I would be reluctant to do . And I have met some Piss taking buyers in my time .

would be fair to offer fair compensation for delivery of the boat and whatever deal we do is seperate to that . After all he is probably saving me at least 60 quid in fuel and a day's driving .

Now I wish I had bought that new VW van I looked at in the week , but tranny said he would be faithful for another year < ha ford

I had an Alfa once good fun .

That new VW transporter is Nice but would rather have the time off boating and biking than paying for a new Van , it was a bloody good deal 1.9% over 4 years not worth buying a used one or spending the cash if I had it .

T28 with 2.5 130 bhp and 6 speed . Good residuals for sure , looked at secondhand , would cost more over a 6 yr period to buy used vans .
