can i have a quick rant about servicing
took our into Lansdale marine Chichester on Monday for a 100 hour service
and a change of impeller this is the fourth service £398.00
10 hour 50 hour 100 hour this is a 100 hour even though its only done 140 hours
any way i was excited to go on the BIBOA Carteret cruise tomorrow
so i put the boat in the water to night as its a early start
only to find NO TELL TALE WATER AND AFTER 3/4 MINS THE WARNING BUZZER COME ON , so obviously it had not been tested before i collected it
Am i P---ed off
have now missed the cruise and lost money for the rooms in France
