Re: Do You Remember Your First Bucket?

I was indifferent until you got to the buckets.

Presumably you would have needed the bucket and not a hanky for that quantity of tears

Re: Do You Remember Your First Bucket?

Wotname,

Admittedly, the Nobel Prize for Literature isn't coming my way, but it wasn't THAT bad - was it?

Besides, if the women are all weeping - what do I care what the guys think?

I am not weeping; being a woman of action, I am contemplating throwing over my old bucket for a newer model. Perhaps one with less wear, greater capacity and a prouder stance. A bucket that won't need immediate repair, but can be set right with basic maintenance and routine service.

I need a bucket that has known the weight of a good load but has not been bested by it, one who's handle is still sturdy and has many more years of service to offer. Color is less important than relative proportions and while I would prefer a bucket with larger capacity than my last, what it lacks in volume could, I suppose be made up for in repeated application.

This thread has me wondering about what cruisers read when they're not on watch ...

There are lots of available buckets and I believe it is a life less lived putting up with a bad bucket. Go find one right for you .

aaaahhhh Janet,

In my distraught state, I vowed never to return there. I burned the charts and erased all memory of it on my chartplotter.

I'm afraid only the memory survived, seared into my soul. I still dream og that bucket when I am alone at nnight under the stars. Their glitter brings back memories of the lilting sounds her handle made as she swayed lightly in the wind. The moon's golden glow is naught compared with the inner glow that bucket had.

That marina is as Atlantis, lost to the world. Only the Flying Dutchman docks there.

As seaworthy notes, good and hard buckets are out there - you need only look. Not all are taken.

good luck

You have one foot in the grave once you start to lose focus on the bucket .

Don't settle for just one bucket; there is no perfect bucket; try many types, they all have something to offer. Then settle for however many buckets are needed to fulfil the jobs required.

I for instance, have found I need a soft flexible bucket at times and a SS heavy handed bucket at other times but mostly I use country style galvanised bucket for every day use. I shy away from cheap trashy placcy buckets - they are not true buckets at all and the low price is confirmation of future disappointment.
