You may be right Poly, I know plenty of good boatmen who find it hard to string a sentence together but are second to none when it comes to do there job, on that note, its even more important to listen to what they are saying if they feel its important enough to try to explain something and find it difficult enough to get there point across, can you visualise how frustrating that would be to an old guy when you've got some smart mouth giving it large just for a laugh.
I alway remember a post where I lost it, there was a chap who posted about a boat that had micro blisters on it, he was going to keep it on a trailer an want to know if it was alright, I reckon that it was osmosis and as it was on the trailer I wouldn't worry that much about as it was minimal, I got some matey from up north posting , why bother with surveys, we can do it on line with you, it might be voids, how do you know, blah blah blah blah blah, he was some office guy from up north somewhere, anyway eventually I offered to do the work for nothing if the other smart mouth paid for the guys survey and it was found to be something else, didn't hear no more, but my point is I could quite easily have said f#*k you lot and that would be another trade non poster

Biff - I remember that thread well. It's not quite how I remember it! As I recall the suggestion was simply that he should post some pictures to confirm they were blisters not voids/bubbles in the gel... if I remember rightly you lost the plot that anyone might describe something as a blister that wasn't a blister, and that nobody should be allowed to question your expertise at seeing the problem from the other side of the country without so much as a picture ;-)

Still glad to see you are not holding a grudge!

I don't hold grudges and I've got no problem with northeners, I'm not getting into this again, blisters are blisters, voids are voids, if you don't know the difference and what causes them it's better to keep quite, what I have got a problem with and it's a big problem on my part, I have zero tolerance for twats and have no buffer between what I think and what I say

I didn't even know you could get an online copy, I will probably reverse what I said and get it for 15 quid.

Can you view older copies on line also??
