Good advice. A good indication might be to give it some time for gravity to work and open the top bung and see how homogeneous it is.

It will need to be put on a shaker or stirred for a very long time to get it mixed.

Re: When its Too Good to be True!

Tom, Rita's doesn't exist anymore. About the paint. Maybe you are lucky, but be aware of the fact that here in Suriname 80% (!!!) of the brand stuff is Chinese fake. That's not from heresay, but some team of factfinders went through the whole Caribbean to check this out.
So be carefull buying lots of the stuff. Just saying

Oh, and by the way, those Dutch fishermen are indeed a good source to ask. Look for the catamaran in their backyard.

By the way, we saw your boat going by when passing the high bridge over the Suriname River. Was it last week, or the week before? Just checked your blog and recognized the hard top.

We just emigrated because we were sick of the Netherlands Too busy, too many rules, too many people. So we sold out steel 30 footer, and with that money we emigrated to Suriname. We are living here for almost eight years now, but it's time to leave again. The world is too big to stay at one place.
Actually I'm (we) doing nothing "here". I translate chistian books for several publishers in the Netherlands and my wife is doing a study psychology. Next year our youngest child is going back to the Netherlands for study, and then it's the two of us again. Time for new things. But it's still very nice were we live. We are living just three kilometers from the Suriname River, at the other side of where Paramaribo is. In the middle of lots of green, growing stuff.

About the cat. They told us (I think 7 years ago) that it was stolen in South Africa and sailed to Suriname by a couple. They left it there, on one of the moorings of the Dutch fishermen, and after a while it started to sink because of leaking seals of the sail drives, and they pulled the cat out of the water. There was some trial over the cat, about the ownership of it. The Dutch wanted to see cash for the long period of mooring and the haul out, but nobody wanted to pay and all. I don't know what it going on now, because I haven't spoken to the fishermen for a long time.
