If bassinet is correct can you have another go, FFS? I'm just starting out on some travels - don't know when I'll be able to check in again.

Bassinet is correct, jsks - bass=fish, net=trap, with the i in the word coming from 'Ideally, opening', ie the opening letter of 'ideally'. And a bassinet is for 'little ones'.

Seems like a collaborative effort. Arch enemies it was.
Sorry for the delayed response - I haven't checked in this thread till now.
