Whack top on, then put a wrap of tape around join between top and container. This is fairly extreme sealing. Are you expect sea breaking over you?

I think that is what I was thinking of .
Just spent hours on a rope system round an old chainsaw oil container . If I had spent that long out at work I could have earned enough money to have bought an all singing buoy. Still I think that is not the point .
If it works it will be far more satisfying .

I bought my first lobster off Ronald McDonald on jura five years ago . Cooked it with some squat lobster which in my opinion are well under rated . Then sat with a beer looking out from craighouse .

Buying one from tesco won't quite match that , which I think is your point . Catching my own mind you might just .

I did think it might be a wind up for English tourists but if it was the locals kept it up for the whole holiday .


I worked for tesco for 27 years before setting up my own tree surgery business .

The first tree job I did on a road side which required high vis jackets which I hadn't bought , so I remembered my tesco ones that I used on site visits .

I handed them out to me and the lads , they had tesco logo on them . An old boy walked by walking his dog , looked up and saw our vests and shrugged his shoulders saying f****ing tesco are into everything these days .

Laugh I nearly bought. Round

Fyi

I'm acquainted with this particular Ronald McDonald of Jura. He assisted in the repatriation of my person after an unfortunate ribbing incident a few years back. He is one of nature's Gentlemen

Repatriation = Deportation.
