Or his Crocs 

foul things I agree

but they float

 sensible summer wear  for a  man who lives 100 yards from the hard

winter times it is wellies and thick socks

Is this correct,Dylan: The WHALE is in Blythe, at the docks, several hours(?) from your home. You plan to do some work on the boat at the docks? If so, will the boat winter over in Blythe in the water or on the hard? Maybe I missed these points, sorry.

The invention of the battery powered drill and worklight apparently hasn't made it to fair England?

Happy for you and your new boat though

Drill? *AND* its friends.

Impact driver, jigsaw, planer, angle grinder, right angle drill, vacuum cleaner etc etc etc.

There was a cordless drill there

Just used for screwing and drilling

The  plug in ones do not go flat when using the flap wheel and work better I think

The work light is 400 watts and puts out both light and heat

V useful inside a damp boat

Marvelous for drying as well as lighting

Paint and varnish can dry within an hour. Warming up an epoxy area Too
