Boogie Nights

"Ever wondered what it's like to live the dream, with damp elbows and a feint whiff of your close friend's toilet habits? This is a yachting blog with a difference, as we go on a journey of discovery, a journey of stupid ideas and ridiculous adventures. The daily commute will never look the same again."

Blow me

this car, it's not just having a rest, it's dead. It has ceased to be.
for sale: a 2004 Nissan Cube, high mileage but otherwise in tip top nick. OH, But it'll need a new cylinder head gasket. 

Yes my poor little pope mobile has blown a gasket. All this tripping up and down the country has finished it off. I've called a friend of a friend to come and tow it away to fix it in a cheaper part of the country. It's heading north to join my dog and the rest of my stuff in storage.
I got a quote to fix it in the south £2000. A quote from a garage I know in Derbyshire, £850.
Even including the £100 to get it towed north. It's a no brainer.
