    Default Detritus

    …….continuing on from my inaugural speech, the word detritus made an impression on me. I don’t know about others but this thread is our chance to find out…… might be interesting to find out. When stuck fro ideas and inspiration google is your friend. Not all detritus is bad:

    Detritus of the sea is the nutritional base of some large animals and important fisheries, while on land only a limited number of species of small arthropods are detritivores, and fungi are the major consumers of wood detritus. Termites are one animal group that thrives on wood.

    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Friends had brother black labs named Flotsam & Jetsam. Shoulda had a cat named Detritus.

    Was that a complete non sequitur?

    In Leo's videos of rebuilding Tally-Ho, he often refers to "detritus" falling into the bilge.
    I'd never heard of the term before.
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    "Detritus falling into the Bilge?!!"

    Hey now, you're talking about me and my friends! I'm not so useless (yet) that I'm merely detritus, and I can crawl put of the Bilge any time I wa..... uhmm...
