Where to buy a canvas bucket???

Wierd question I know, but I saw one on a boat in the marina and want one. Its just a small bailer on the end of a piece of line, used for getting water to wash down the deck. Any ideas where I could find one?

Can you let me know what it's like, I quite fancied one myself re the ease of storage on my little boat.

I bought a 5kg flook flying anchor for a tenner (+ free delivery) from them to keep as a spare, blimey that is one amazing anchor, it glides through the water like a stealth bomber to the sea bed and hooks in. I don't have any chain with that one as it is a spare, but Jimmy Marine spliced the rope for me with the fittings, nice job.

Read about these anchors years ago - may just try one out - ideal as a kedge anchor.

Bucket and line has arrived in post today and it is great. Two metres of line splived on, 2 gallon bucket, perfect for swilling the deck and easy to store. 17 well spent I reckon.

As far as the line and splicing went I just took their advice. It seems they often fit a two metre line to these buckets.

Failing that tell them the same bucket as Oliver Vaulkhard in Newcastle upon Tyne bought.
