Sounds like I need to get some plastic bags and stuff them in my trousers.

The back of wardrobes make good source of plywood for quick repairs when everywhere is closed when you get off the water...Make sure you pay in cash when you leave the B+B...
Have you noticed that the carrier bags you are promoting now all have holes in, they dont work for keeping plaster casts dry...cant beat duck tape and a dustbin liner...
 
I am sure I can remember more, just need beer...

Just a quick note to say we'll run this thread for another week and then put all the tips together after that. 

Get those thinking caps on!

Just trying to defend my sordid preference for dry undies!

Let us return to the many uses for supermarket plastic bags, and hope that someone else can bring a non-trouser-related 'sailing hack' to our attention....
