Mud, Mud, Glorious Mud!

John Spencely and Mark Primrose have been getting information and processing paperwork to get us a renewed dredging licence for Boswall Bittern.

One of the requirements was to get samples of mud both for analysis and for checking its specific gravity. One of the many hidden tasks required to keep the Club fully operational.

The picture shows the revered R M Primrose using the Spencely Patent Extending Mud Scoop to collect 3 litres of mud to establish its specific gravity (ie tonnes per cube metre) for the purposes of obtaining a dredging licence.
