Lurker on the website/Youtube, mostly on stuff like concrete/cement/pointing that I like to have a second opinion on before starting...

I'm a former industrial designer that has converted to marine engineering, hence I'll be active 6 weeks, gone the next 6 weeks.
I work in dredging and salvage as a mechanical officer (engineer).

Presently I'm renovating a house that looks good but full of half done jobs from 1965(ish).

The only thing I know about Gent is a little rhyme:

There was a young man from Gent
Who's penis was exceedingly bent
To get out of trouble
He put it in double
And instead of coming, he went

:lol:

No idea, as far as I know we are only famous for a reality show The Only Way Is Essex. If that can be classified as fame :lol:

Should it be Ghent?

Ghent is the English spelling to imitate the Flemish pronunciation...

Maybe we should write Essex "S'sex" to return the favour.
