It's not that they were bad, in fact quite the opposite, just that EC were better.
1. Price. I know mostly their prices are similar, but a few items historically I've seen a big difference.
2. Delivery. This is the real winner for me. I could order this afternoon, and it'll be with me tomorrow and if I say please leave in porch, it gets left in the porch so I don't have to waste Saturday morning picking up from the courier depot. Their delivery is consistently v. good, which means I can spend more time playing with my boat and less time frigging around. The CFS couriers wouldn't do that when I asked

Ah, I wouldn't know much about their courier woes as they're only 5m from me. The unit is a large, very modern and impressive affair.

Oi! It's a hard boat, so I don't "do" holes.

Doesn't Blue Gee in Poole just by the turnoff to the ferry on the corner of the Sunseeker works by Poole Bridge have anything. They have a big sign saying cheapest Epoxy in the South just outside (which I believe may be violation of the Trade Description Act, 1968)

Not sure whether it is different couriers for this area, or just regional variation, but I generally get CFS stuff the following day, and if I say leave it where the sun don't shine, that's what they do

And he's such a happy chap behind the counter, making it such a pleasure to pay the hefty prices.
