Uncharted Waters
As Gerry King (Chairman Ausglass) remarked at the beginning, the theme linked the adventure of the sea with that of glass. We were treated to many nautical allusions in speaker introductions; I remember falling off a flat earth, going on the wrong tack, Captain Cook, and others.
But sorry, Gerry, the bitter end of an anchor cable is not the end attached to the anchor but the other end. Coming to the bitter end when anchoring is serious stuff.
