Stores in Guernsey

Hi Goatboy, or should I say: Hello, hello, hello, what's going on here, then? (Bet you've never heard that one before...)

I've no idea about purchasing a well seized watertight container from Guernsey. Do you mean a good sized one? You might not be able to get the top off a seized one!

Whatever you decide upon, good luck!

Sorry about that... it just read a bit funny!

Not quite a classic like Fork Handles mind you... http://www.funny.co.uk/comedy/prod_1...o-Ronnies.html

Still not clear about what sort of containers you're after though.

Suffering the same problem myself, can't get a decent flare tub here either or navy blue lifejackets. Contemplating a visit to the 'sister isle' to do a bit of marine shopping. Had to go there to buy a boat even. No rib manufacturers in Jersey.

Container

Have you tried the Freeport Marine by the elizabeth marina most people forget its there? if Not order one it will be cheaper than using all that fuel by going to guernsey.
