Obviously I know better than to suggest an alternative but just wondering why you've chosen RG-8/U over RG-8X which most seem to recommend and is available by the metre for about £3?

It's a repeat but this is a nice wee piece about the River class on Strangford Lough.

An excellent evening. Cherry Ripe was unable to join us but kindly agreed to stand his rounds regardless and we managed to keep his bar bill below £50.

Thanks Ken. :santa:

Re: Bulk Purchasing and Buying Power

You can remove me from the list Geoff. On closer inspection my number two chain turned out to be a bit of a curate's egg and while much of it is fine there is at least one seriously weak link. Only fit for scrap I'm afraid.

Re: Pun from the Met Office?

Barney has a certain resonance if you happen to be on the water to experience it but I'm struggling to make a similar connection with Clodagh.

Re: deleted

Unless you're selling a large quantity of second-hand anchor chain in various sizes and lengths in which case I wouldn't recommend putting the link up here.
