Found these guys (A Bolt From The Blue) on ebay selling A4 marine grade stainless steel bolts, washers etc. Just what I need to get me ready for the new sailing season. Coupled with my old friend Parcel Motel, am looking forward to getting ship shape soon.
I recently purchased two childs buoyancy aids on ebay for £5.50 +£3.75 delivery. Together with delivery via Parcel Motel for €3.50 I am feeling like I got a proper result on that purchase. The seller was moving house and was selling off the contents of their shed, I have simply re-housed the buoyancy aids in my shed!
I was looking out for a wind gauge that measured wind speed using the Beaufort scale. I spotted this little item on Amazon and it seemed to fit the bill. It was a great price but the Amazon Marketplace seller did not post to Ireland.
Not to be thwarted at this stage, I had them deliver to my Parcel Motel address in Antrim and the Anemometer was in my hot little fist within weeks for an extra €3.50 – posted from Hong Kong.
I have used it a few times now during sailing sessions and it it proving very handy, well pleased with my latest bit of kit.
