Are we about to sail? We are if the Blue Peter is on the masthead. Back to the ship, you jack-tars, unless you want a flogging.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Peter_%28flag%29 - the letter "P" if you didn't know. The golden rivet is folk lore only.

That generally needs cleaned and make sure it is soaped.. I run a nice bar of soap along the metal track.. wax works well to to keep it moving nicely!

Karen, I am impressed you identified the spring and where it goes so quickly. How did you know?
