Who really cares how people pronounce it?


I tend to pronounce "block and tackle" the Navy way (taykle), but it's just a harmless affectation, as is using "winned" for turning a boat when in other circumstances you would pronounce the same word in the conventional way.

I blame more banal narrowboat blogs/diary. They inevitably start the day with the awful phrase " we pulled the pins"..... smile.png

Accupuncture is quite common in those long distance CC'ers, it is needed to offset the strains caused by lock keys, heavy lock doors and pulling the lines tight when parking up at night.
