Re: Dropped in Head - Now What ?

Fwiw, I have no economic conflict of interest...haven't have any since I sold my product line to Raritan in 1999. I don't sell ANYthing any more, not even my own book...my publisher does and pays me a whopping $2 royalty for each copy sold. And occasionally I'm paid a small fee to show up at a rendezvous to cast my pearls of wisdom upon the waters...but that is the extent my of income from the marine industry. When it comes to equipment, I "calls 'em as I as I sees 'em" based on my own experiences and that of all the owners I've heard from over the past 24 years.

And now that we have THAT settled...

Have I ever, ever, heard of someone dropping their toothbrush,hairbrush, comb, glasses, dentures, or knife into a cedar bucket?

No...but that may be because I thought all wooden buckets were oak. But cedar, oak, galvanized or plastic...if you ever dropped something into one, would YOU tell any one??? However, I HAVE heard of and even witnessed those items going into bilges and down to Davy's locker...so maybe there is something special about cedar after all.

Re: Dropped in Head - Now What ?

A head bucket is supposed to be fragrant cedar, the cedar oils repel insects & supposedly help sterilize the wood, I sould guess. I know whiskey barrels and wine casks are usually oak but one wouldn't want to confuse the two.

As for not telling...what, you've never heard anyone mention a drop in the bucket?<G>

Seems like the great alibaba.com are the only folks left hawking cedar buckets these days. Must be a plumbers' conspiracy. <VBG>

Just using the head in the usual prescribed manner for which it's intended. Knife is of the clip variety, but apparently not clippy enough.
