Now Paul, just because this is a picture of your last marriage doesn't mean you need to lash out at others.

It is just the Beaver reusing stock the stock carton he found - nothing to do with me. Put this next link in your browser. Beaver found it and can't find enough uses for it.

It was used previously in the Beaver's post referenced below:

Not at all. People keep making references to whips & stuff and that's the only appropriate pic I know of.

Yeh, right. Beavers ate more of the Royal Navy than Toledo Worms. You just can't stand to see a good piece of oak go to waste.

Toledo worms are a group of closely related species of marine worms that bore into almost anything to feed by filtering flowing water for food particles and also to reproduce. They were probably responsible for sinking more shipping that any other sngle factor during the age of wooden vessels and sailing ships  - i.e., from the Phonecians and before until just the last century.

Discovery hull 'safe' from worms

Damage to the hull of one of Scotland's most historic ships by a marine worm is not as bad as first feared.

It was thought that the toledo worm had infested the timbers of the 100-year-old Discovery in Dundee.

But after the hull was power-washed, only two small infested areas were found. The worm is expected to die.

Captain Robert Scott's ship, used on his trip to Antarctica, is currently in dry dock undergoing £688,000 of conservation work to its hull.

The work began after a survey of the ship identified the need for the work to keep it afloat.

Funding for the project came mainly from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Dundee City Council and the Discovery 100 appeal campaign also contributed toward the cost of the work.

Gill Poulter, from the ship's custodians Dundee Heritage Trust, said: "The ship desperately was in need of some work and this is quite a large project.

"The ship is in reasonable condition considering its age but every ship needs care and attention particularly historic wooden ones."

She added: "We were quite worried about the toledo worm because it can burrow down quite deep and cause quite a lot of damage so the news that only a couple of areas are affected is better than we were hoping for.

"It is quite easily treatable."

The conservation work is being carried out by Mackay Boat Builders of Arbroath. (Bold is mine.)

Discovery will remain in dry dock until November giving visitors a rare opportunity to have guided tours round a normally hidden part of the vessel.
_________________________________________________________________


The fact the ship is out of water means the worms will die, as referenced above. I do hope the Mackay Boat Builders are not the same company that makes the Mackay's Lemon Curd I had with my scones and P.G. Tips this afternoon.

(Rosalind, thank you for the scone recipe you posted earlier - it is simple and easy to make - and the scones are simply lovely!)

They also are known to bore into rocks. Same warning applies.
