MOORING PINS.... or rather 'disappointing mooring pins'.
HOW NAFF are these? - (do put a question mark in a rhetorical question?)
My first mooring stakes/pins arrived yesterday... now whilst my father has always said "if you can't say something positive about a situation - say nothing", I'm choosing to ignore him on this occasion. They really are rubbish looking. OK so I'm sure they'll do the job but the loops are really feeble AND nothing like the photo in the advert on Ebay.
This is one of those occasions when I suppose it's true - you get what you pay for.
SO - later today, I'm going to head in to work and look through our scrap metal pile for some steel bar ... I have a feeling we have a few bits kicking around from a previous job which might be thick enough have a go at my own.
Also on today's list is a visit to screw fix to pick up various things I ordered on line yesterday... such as new steel toe-capped trainers,
Incidentally - IF you are in need of a pair of steels, then I highly recommend the site trainers above- they're my 3rd pair (they last about 3 months with the work I do) but they ARE flexible enough for crouching down and crawling under fairground rides whilst giving good protection for your toes... AND a bargain at 24.95 inc vat.
Until next time...
