Anyone used it? Did it work? Just thinking about what, in due course, to anoint my bottom with and this seems like an economical product.

I used it 2 years ago - went back to the ludicrously expensive Hempel Ocean Performer last year and will be spending on it again this year. I definitely needed a mid season scrub with the Gael Force, only a wee bit slime after 9 months with the liquid gold.
Of course if you intend to take part in any races, the hairier your arse, the better.

Prior to Geoff's bulk purchase, I used it for several years. Not being a super fast wave skimming sort, I found it was thoroughly satisfactory and, prior to Geoff's any-colour-you-like-as-long-as-it's-blue scheme, more economical than anything else I could find.
