If anyone needs their bottoms touching up and they have used Zinger (or similar) Lidl may have the answer.

In the middle aisle from 21st March.

I think this chap has touched up his bottom with Zinger (or similar).

I find it very worrying when this is shown in conjunction with Stiftung & Co aka Lidl. What is the world coming to?

I could comment on another of the varieties offered, especially in relation to the picture above, but am loath to incur the Wrath of the Moderator for a second time.

You're just a very very naughty boy. Shouldn't know about such things. Is this why you are an Ex Brummie, thrown out?

That 400ml can apparently has a shipping weight of 358g and that includes the can. I don't think I'd rely too heavily on a metal spray with a density less than water. I suspect that's mostly what is inside it plus propellant. I doubt it serves any great purpose beyond the cosmetic.

Ally is lighter than Zinc, now argue about weight and density

Deliberate error there DC?

The blurb on the tin claims otherwise.

850 cans @ £2.50/can = £2125.

10 cans/carrier bag = 85 [email protected] 10p = £8.50.

40 cans per trolley = 21 trolleys.

10 carrier bags per car boot = 9 full car boots.

5 miles from home = 10 miles x 9 visits = 90 [email protected] 30mpg = 3 gallons. (£18).

And then all over again from home to your boat!

 

All the above on the back of a fag packet of course!

 

Cheaper to road haul your boat to the Lidl car park and do it there across half a dozen car slots!!!?

For a lot of folks their boat is their home.

Not everyone is a 'weekend hobby-boater'.

Don't take it too seriously ADE.  Who cares??

I'm discussing spray can logistics and you pick me up about lifestyles??

Surprised you didn't comment on Lidl management complaining about a narrowboat in their car park!

Are all their carparks free and no time limit, you would be hard pushed to get finished in 3 hours which most supermarkets limit you to

Crikey - I forgot about that!  Do they have a tow truck big enough to tow it away?

 

More worrying though - some crazy mum and her kids might scratch the hull when they park next to it, with their shopping trolley!

Tree monkey - while youre on...whats chirk marina like?  It's on my short list for a mooring.

 

Regards

I'm not in the area any more and never moored there but I know a fair few are happy there.

It's not modern with all the bells and whistles but the basic services are available.

Basically a nice quiet rural mooring spot, just don't underestimate quite how busy the Llan can get in the summer

I visited Dunchurch Pools marina a month ago and that looks a very nice marina. I thought you were looking up the llangollen

Where is dunchurch?  I am looking at all marinas within a 45-60 minute drive from home, which is 20 mins west of Chester, cheshire.

Aqeduct/tattenhall/ABC (Northwich)/Northwich/Venetian/etc etc.

Chirk seems to be the nearest and best all rounder (from a countryside perspective).

Aqeduct is the best in terms of layout, standards and ameneties by far.  But it's not cheap!

Are you going to sit on the boat in the marina or go boating. If its sit on the boat in the marina then its something like Aqueduct with its restaurant on site of Northwich which is in the town but on the river, if you are going boating then maybe something like Venetian or similar.  If you want pretty then Dunchurch  CV23 8AN . If you want cheap and no mod cons then Park farm on the T&M at CW9 7RY a bit more up market and almost next door is Oakwood Marina CW9 7RY.  Tattenhall is all double locks to get anywhere.
