Also bought mine from local pharmasist at Killearn = cost less than a fiver for enough for 2x 27 foot boat! Only problem I had with it was leaving it in the little unmarked plastic bag and two months later nearly using it as sugar!!!

By the way C_W, I decided to try out the 'new' McGruers yard for winter storage. Formerly Dove Marine, and lovely concrete surface to put boats on. Also Silvers chandlery available at discount for boats in yard. £13 dearer than Clydebank, but just a stone's throw from my mooring.

Tut tut, mixing yer metafers again.
Should be either 'Lord knows' or 'Pete's sake'

Hm, but "Lord knows" and "Pete's sake" are not metaphors are they? They are merely figures of speech, idiomatic form, and new ones are fine, i think?

Matt is not bored - this is atypical of him and let it be an insight for you into the pedantic fekking mess that he calls a mind.
