Kieran, Up here they often call L.S.D's "Sand Dogs".

I've heard that LSD's were used to sand down the decks of ships before the advent of sandpaper. Maybe that's where the name came from. Coincidentally I was watching Ray Mears, on BBC2 this week, talking to a guy who made bows (as in bows and arrows). He also said that before they had sandpaper they used to use dogfish to smooth down the bows.
