    Does it have a boiler rivet cunningly concealed inside Davie? That was the usual addition,both to give it some weight for getting the distance and to gie the rope catchers on the pier a sair heid if they werenae on their toes!! A dying art right enough,pity too,but as Catman says everybody's got "plastic shit" now..boats as well as fenders O0 :coolsmiley:
    I was in the last seamanship class at Lossie high school. Theyve scrapped that now in favour of 'computer game development' and other such crap.

    as a result, no-one comin out of school can tie a knot, row a boat, or spell 'wanker' in morse code.  :coolsmiley:
