You think they're different? Wait until you get a load of us IRISH...

Ask Almost Irish Stoo, he's married to an Almost Irish bird...

Given that the majority of fish slime and blood that you cant get off/out of the bnoat is likely to be in all the litlle nooks and crannies inside of the boat and that I would have thought you'd be able to give the tubes a good scrub.

Would it be necessary to fully sink the sib for this to be effective? Would just dropping/openg the self bailers and or removing the bung so as to flood the deck, much like the sunken searider being discussed elsewhere.

Then anchor it a little way offshore using waders. This would surely stop it being smelled and would also leave it sitting low in the water for heavy weather

Once you wanted to use the boat again all youd have to do is drag it ashore and let it drain if you have launching wheels then this would be farly easy if not then a little muscle should do the job!

Maybe I am missing the point here but if this was a viable option then it would be a lot simpler!

Isn't there some sort of spray that puts bears off?

"Bear spray" is not like bug repellent. Essentially it is like mace, a concentrated pepper capsicum mixture in a high pressure canister with a range of about 10 yards or so, used when an aggressive bear gets to close to you (less than 100 yards is too close). It is strictly a last resort thing that is used in an emergency, if the wind isn't right you get almost as much of this as the bear would. Sometimes it puts the bear off, sometimes it just pisses the bear off.

A .375 H&H magnum is much more effective, but less popular amongst the Treadwellian* elements of society.

"Super Drug" ??? Is that what she would slip into your drink if you weren't looking?

No… the bear sprays are for direct contact only, and have been shown in tests to actually attract bears if they are used as a preventative measure and sprayed all over things….. go figure?

I have heard and seen guys pi*sing all around their camp and their stuff…. Not just due to over indulging, but as a bear encroachment preventative…. Cant say how effective it is though….
