Never a truer saying!.....four weeks ago I informed my sailing club that I'me pulling my boat out and towing her back to my yard so I can refit her. The next week I go down and check her trailer to find it's peppered with rust holes and is definatly not going to make a 32 mile journey with 1 & 1/2 tons on it!.....a week later I spot a S/H trailer on the web price is o'k but maybe not suitable, but I want to look at it anyway just in case!....that Sunday morning I have bad vibes about the journey to Colchester but go anyway! On arriving (just off the A12) I noticed my Shogun didn't appreciate the constant 85 mph I had just given her!!! chuggin on 5 cylinders the old v6 was telling me it want no duff spark plug either....."B****cks" I angrily shouted....Saw the trailer and of course no bloody good! (B***cks and words worse than that!).....nursed the ole motor back home down the A12 (Taking a visual note of the emergency phone boxe's, in case of a blow up!).....as luck would have it everyone books in their cars for repairs at my garage! and for a further two weeks I'me fixing everybody else's but not mine but still chugging around to and frow risking more engine damage. At last this weekend I now can repair the ole girl so early Saturday morning I drive her in unlock my tool box and get to work stripping down this Japanese wonder of a V6....about 4pm the valves are replaced on No 5 cylinder and the head is torqed down now bolting up the exhuast manifold and 'Snap!' the most furthest exhaust stud in about the worse inaccessible position ever decides to take a vacation in my socket!....after a lot of those 'F' words and others that would make Ozzy Osbourne blush, I was determined to drill it out! Thank you Snap On! your tools are brill....7 that evening after begging and grovelling phone call from me the wife pick's me up to take me home, I have a long shower with a grin on my face thinking of my good luck at last. We have a good dinner that my lady has cooked and settle down in the living room and get plastered on Vodka and Orange!...'Sh*t' it's Sunday morning I have a massive hangover and to top the bloody lot the kin clocks have gone forward!!!!...the wife still to p*ssed to give me a lift into the workshop is laying in bed dribbling and snoring, so I get a cab. The next 4 hours I am suffering so much that every spanner I pick up weighs about 10lb, but allas I get the ole girl running sweet and I'me back home to watch the last race of British Superbikes and Arsenal V United. It would seem now that this bitch of bad luck is now passing I managed to buy a good trailer for a good price the motor is purring and I am relaxing tonight telling you lot the highlights of a bitch past few weeks!
