Design of the Johnnie Walker Black bottle

The forecast is for rain, rain, rain. Fortified by scotch, beer, books and smokes I am prepared. As I returned to Reboot I thought about the JWB bottle for shipboard use. Square. No wasted space in the locker, doesn t roll. Too tall for my “speed rack.” Glass – not my first choice. Weak cap. Not good. Risk mitigation: reduce amount of fluid in container smartly.Fair winds and following seas :)Roger sv Reboot +61 (0)476 768 335

Adhesive


Please look at the photo. The black object is the forward waste holding tank. The white fitting is attached to the tank. After many years the adhesive decided to fail. (Be very glad you were elsewhere.) We cleaned both the tank and the fitting and applied 3M 5200. It failed. What do you use to make this adhesive connection?Thanks
