You might want to practice somewhere cosy that before you go live. Either you have a different morphology to others or you're gonna get very wet and cold.

Waders full of water are not a good plan!

Well if you are going to ask F£$%**G stupid questions what do you expect?

Why not sink it with the density of your brain coz obviously you don't use it when you are out and about.

Hmmmm, ya know bazza….. where I plan to go, and the things I plan to do with my SIB, my question may seem fairly far out… but I think it’s legitimate. If you disagree, and think it’s a stupid question, then why bother posting a reply? In your previous post, I gave you the benefit of the doubt and figured you were just yanking my chain and decided to play along.

So maybe it’s just that you are a bit sensitive and can’t take playful banter as well as you can dish it out? Not a problem little turtle…. Just pm me with your address and I will send you some turtle wax to toughen up your shell a bit!

The bear-slashed inflatable boat scenario is a concern that has been in the back of my mind for some time. Bears absolutely love vinyl & foam rubber and frequently chew up the seats of ATVs, tree stand & so on.

The idea of sinking a SIB (especially a largish one) would be a major hassle. I think that getting the SIB onto dry ground and using a D cel battery operated electric fence would be far simpler and quicker to set up. There are a few outfits that offer them at prices typically ranging from ~$250 - 400. Here is a link to one example of these fences;

Will, you would be most welcome out here anytime! I've always fancied to think of the UK folk as being distinctly different (much more down to earth) than the majority of continental Eurounionistas. The UK should just break away from the EU and declare themselves to be a whole separate continent!

Sinking and refloating isn't that big a deal...

Many years ago, a friend of mine (a Brit no less) used a 14' SIB as a lift bag to salvage a 32' sail boat. They used a tug to approach but eventually stuffed the deflated SIB into the cabin of the yacht and used a SCUBA cylinder to partially inflate the SIB, thereby re-floating the sailboat. Once it was up, they pumped her out, deflated and removed their SIB and all was good.

It's simple enough to rig up an inflator from a dive tank... you just need to be careful not to overinflate the boat.

I suspect that sinking a SIB to hide it from bears would be a good plan, the most difficult part would be getting enough air out of the SIB to be able to actually sink it...

my thoughts exactly! I have been reading some good reviews on a local forum about thier use, and other than the danger of staggering into one whilst out for a drunken waas in the middle of the night, they should be perfect!

Now willk, that there is some funny stuff! I have always found the UK to be an interesting contradiction between extremely civilized culture and an unnecessarily hard life….

Friendly and kind people… very civilized
Beautiful landscape
Colorful history
Amazing architecture
Great food (despite everything I had ever been told)
The best beer on the planet (IPA or Bitter)
Low crime rate (personal crime)

So why does it have to be so hard…..?
Insane infrastructure (you guys should bomb Rome for some well overdue revenge)
Wacky road system (is there a 10k strait North South, or East West road anywhere in your country?)
Doors and door knobs that work backwards…
Weird open gutters on the street…. Great for taking a post pub waas….if it weren’t for all the cop cameras..
The biggest electrical wall sockets on the planet! Geeze… all I wanna do is power a lap top, not tryin to jump start a jumbo jet!

But at least you aint got to worry about dangerous critters there… no big cats, bears, gators etc. but I did run across a rather large pierced and tattooed girl in a Dover pub that looked like she could cause some real trama…….

;-} Cheers!
