    I don't know how long the problem had existed as the consumer unit is in a cupboard under the stairs but it certainly was a shock to the system seeing the damage. I have...

    For a dive wagon, I think you would want a waterproof base for it and to thoroughly seal the boards but the overall idea is sound.

    I sincerely hope we learn from previous mistakes and don't fish them out of existence again. Knowing the fishing industry though I suspect the same mistakes will be made again.
