Hi, Don,

These are being described by various posters to the Rense sight
as oil line cleaners or practice mines.

I'm fairly certain here that Al is correct. It is not the
Grippler himself -- although the resemblance from the picture on
the site _is_ uncanny. In fact, I will make a quick post to New
York this evening to confirm that the Grippler hasn't been
boating recently.


Best,

Bill
