Young Rhys on the river.
Inspired by Amanda’s trip to the chandlery, which had us sniggering like school girls, and egged on by Twitter friends @BoatshedGU and @UKCanals…. the #saucyboat list of the top ten things we can find in a cheeky chandlery.
Anti-vibration mounting (@Workboatpug)
Coque et pont (Amanda)
Gland Packing (@Workboatpug) [Added 'lubricating the packing gland', which O's been doing this week, and 'hot gland packing']
JetWashers (@BoatshedGU in an attempt to clean things up a little)
Moisture Mate (Amanda)
Renew rubbing liquid (Amanda) [ add Rubbing Compound (and liquid rubbing compound)]
Self tailing winch
Starbrite Bottom Cleaner (Amanda)
I excluded ropes, horns, red lights, shackles and chains as any old Joe can have those, and the long greasy boat shaft because it was too hot to handle!
Seeing them all written in a list rather than a conversation, it doesn’t seem as funny, but feel free to add -with caution. There are children ‘listening’. Think the great tradition of seaside postcards everywhere.
In the words of @Workboatpug – saucy, not smutty!
