Re: id this tool

Am sure that their is a forum around somewhere that specialises in there use - the internet seems to cater to most subjects . And no doubt like every internet forum they also have some "live" recurring subjects (which end is best? ).

Turns out its a dibble. I probably should not have posted a picture of my dibble on line. Especially laid out next to a ruler. Now everyone knows how long my dibble is.
It's for planting seeds and bulbs.
Thanks for the humor and responses.

I have bought that exact tool and it has nothing to do with boating. I is for planting, in the Uk called a dibber. You push it into the garden and then put your plant into the hole.

No, his head is empty, poking a hole in his head would only dull the tool and contribute to global warming.


Nooo, he's drop dead gorgeous, that would be a crime. Here he is in his early 50s - these days it is rare to see men in their 20s who look so fine!

Attachment 62068

The proper thing to do would be for everybody to take turns with the tool to poke me in the @ss for getting married to him WITHOUT SAILING TOGETHER FIRST. What was I thinking?!?! Mmmmm, isn't he a babe ...
I think I see what's going on here. You used this poor man for your own, wanton needs and then when you were done you discarded him like a piece of garbage.

Wish I could have been used and discarded a few times but now I'm old and worthless and probably have to go straight to the garbage without the previous use and abuse step.

PS
From the photos you did try boating together. Maybe you should have put a mast on it to get a better idea of your overall nautical compatibility.
