Kev I'm sure a good man like you will get it sorted, there's plenty of spares about for an A1 so you might as well fix it rather then break it.

Keep us updated.

well only time will tell
ive bought it from a 13 yr old boy that has been coming to the rallys this season with albert his school mate
and hes latched on to me for help ,advice and booking in ect ect ,so hoping that they will carry on for a few years and drag so more young blood to the rally stationary scene
and alberts parents have taken to me well and even invite my family round for sun lunches ect
his dad has already asked me to sort his insurance and who to call for booking in at the same ones as i do

No chance of fishing them out then Kev? You'd be surprised what a bit of patience & a small net can do. I dropped my mobile phone in the Kennet & Avon a few years back, whilst working on my mum & dad's barge, we got it out though. I even managed to get it working again after drying it out for a week or two.

Most of these canals aren't very deep anyway, you just need to know where it went in.
