Bought a used canoe and noticed it tipped easier to one side than the other. After looking closer at it, I now realize one side of the canoe is steeper than the other. Can this be fixed? It's my first canoe, so I guess I didn't know what to look for when I bought it. The owner told me it was stored in his garage and it's only 7 years old. My guess is perhaps he stored it propped up on its side? I really hope I can fix this somewhat. It's not unusable, but it very obviously tips one way.

I've defaulted back to the good old blue barrel for things that can't tolerate water, heavy, cumbersome,

I've tried looking up dry bag options?suggestions?
Bump to see if OP ever comes back with an update.
While not the usual asymmetrical hull, I don’t think it’s worth really worrying over. For large sections of flat water I often find purposefully listing the balance to one side (not radically but certainly noticeably) helps me track easier. If a canoe needed perfect lateral balance to function no one who put their kids, buddies, and dogs in one would ever survive

My advice is to do the two easiest fixes first:
1. Take it out and see if it effects your ability to have a good time. My guess is you’ll be thinking about your rod tip a lot more
2. Put it up on level saw horses on the next hot day. Wait until peak heat and spray it down with a hose. The sudden contraction usually is enough to straighten out my boats
The above advice applies to you as well, assuming you’ve got a poly boat. cedar and aluminum are less tolerant of your bdsm kink
hook a hose to your hot water heater. your canoe is is oil canned. fill the canoe with the hot water and let it set then drain and do it again.

For discussion of entrenchment tools, small shovels, the multitool of digging equipment. Cold steel a'fixed, Hungarian flippy boys, the US market day M-1943 specials, oh my !
Please post your e-tools, questions and discussions on such tools, and your general appreciation of the life such equipment provides you.
Created because of a hearty interest in small, multi-use tools for /out/ activities.

Deadass no reason to bring an e-tool anywhere. Way too much weight for the amount of use they get. If you're really so scared of using a stick to dig a hole in for poopin, just bring a trowel.
It is a fair point, as long as people don't respond to it more than other posts.
A trowel is good, yes, for digging small holes for such activities- but some people while out do more digging than that, and a trowel is too small for that use. Extended stay. And during that, they might need to whack a few branches, which the shovel does better too.
They both have a role, and even in the garden I find myself using an e-tool for most of the work since its small enough to dig smaller holes but can carry substantial amounts of dirt when I need to fill them back up
and when whacking thru actual roots, which a trowel cannot do
I scrub my tools after every use, still pristine. Learned it from contractors that did my floors.
Interesting, show us.

Best canoeing in the US, my nig. Boundary Waters Wilderness was also recently under threat from the Trump admin trying to open sulfide-ore copper mining nearby, which would have permanently polluted the water table. Fortunately activists mobilized, Biden got elected, and we shut that shit down. Celebrate with a little trip to the lakes for me.

Downside of Minnesota: the bottom two-thirds of the state is just freezing prairie. You have to live in the coldest, most remote northern parts to benefit fully from the vast public land. It's really a summer state if you ask me, but some people like winter sports and there's plenty of snowmobiling and cross-country skiing and ice fishing there, so if you're into that it's one of the best places you could be.

the coons are getting bolder and I wish to pet them, please share experiences and strategies
29 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
I love friendly squirrels. I literally eat them.
I had a pet raccoon living under my house I used to feed scraps to, sometimes I'd eat part of a fruit pie and throw the rest out just to have something to feed him. One day he got in a fight with dads bloodhound and the neighbour who was actually a pest control guy, and I had to kill the little coon so they could test it for rabies. Worst day of my life.
I killed way more animals than that. I don't consider it evil. Kids need to learn the power of their fangs. Otherwise you end up a bugman who lets tyrants walk all over you and you can't even accept the idea of killing someone who could harm you or killing an animal to feed your family. We are so detatched from nature and reality these days it's downright disgusting. People who were okay with mask mandates or are okay with income taxation are fucking insects.
Based and fried squirrel pilled
Species like the ring tail cat someone mentioned are better at existing outside of human influence than raccoons are. Though the ring tail cat would/do prosper in urban areas, raccoons are just better at opening garbage cans and interacting with humans. Raccoons have evolved along side human development similar to the way rats have. They get fed and protected by humans either directly or indirectly and their populations swell inorganically. This paired with raccoons size, aggression and finger dexterity allows them to extirpate competing species. Raccoons are notorious for raiding bird nest and eating anything they can get their hands on including deer fawn that can’t walk yet or curious ringtail kittens. I wonder where they get the extra food to feed all their new raccoon babies? :^(

Ok /out/ I need a real bug repellent. Summer's here and the bugs are coming out like there's no tomorrow. I have to deal with giant desert spiders, cockroaches, mosquitoes and stinky beetles. I just want them off me, so what do you recommend?

Feel free to post tobaccos (no weed allowed), pipes, collections, pics of favorite combos for going /out/, pics of what you're doing with your pipe and any questions you might have.

Want to get into smoking pipes without spending too much cash?
Get a Missouri Meerschaum Legend corncob pipe and a pouch of either Captain Black or Half and Half tobacco, available at most drugstores.
What you'll need: pipe, tobacco, lighter or matches, pipe cleaners, and either a regular old nail or a pipe tool (combination tamper, scoop, and small pick).
All of these together should run you less than $25.

Having trouble keeping your pipe lit? Fill it with less tobacco and smoke it slower than you think you need to, lightly tamping as needed when the smoke starts thinning out.
If you're still having trouble, try filling your pipe this way:

This is why weedfags aren't welcome anymore.
Any type of smoke is carcinogenic. Period. Furthermore, you’re inhaling that shit into your lungs. Just the fact that you have to inhale weed means it’s inherently more dangerous.

Good thing about them is that they don't loose their value quickly and there is still demand for them, so I bought mine for ~ 180 euros in sale and sold it for 170 euros. So, even thought I fucked up, it wasn't that bad.

Most importantly, cacti need VERY little water, on account of being desert dwellers. Milliliters at most, many weeks apart.
Thats not really true. Cacti gets by with very little water, but thanks more water with growth speed.
i just give mine the same amount of water as my mouthwash once a week
>Lives in chloramine country
>why does the soil in my cactus' pot fizzes when I pour water into it?
It's drawing fresh oxygen down with the water into the root zone, sounds a lot like crackling/ bubbling. It's a good thing OP.

Well obviously you shouldn't because of your area's habit of unpredictable rain.
Where exactly are the jannies at, in terms of moderation? Seems like zero effort is made to clean the board.
/Out/ is the Wild West of boards. There’s almost no law, but when the sheriffs are around they’ll hang you for jay walking. Seriously, you’ll get a three day suspension for very minor things (like shitposting the potato sack meme in a thread about hiking food), but we had 6 concurrent threads about Savotta backpacks. They’re either asleep at the wheel most of the time or have a specific view of what /out/ should be.
I'm going with the latter. They're definitely around, but they definitely don't give a shit when people are triggered by savottaposting.
>the weather forecast said it wouldn't rain
That's what you get for trusting the word of soothsayers.

I've heard that paying the docking fee for a boat can be pennies compared to rent in some places so I'm trying to research this to see if it's worth a damn. Where would I go about looking for a cheap gas-powered boat that has a cabin that I could live in? And what search term do I even use to look for something like that? I've seen them called "cuddy's" or "cabin boats" but I'm not really familiar with the terminology so this is sort of a shot in the dark for me. Is maintenance difficult for these boats/motors? Would it be possible to have running water/AC/electricity/internet (any of the finer things really) or would that all be out of the question due to the nature of living on a boat? What exactly would be the minimum entry fee for a boat I could live on comfortably I guess is what I'm asking in general because I love the idea of this but the specifics are way too vague for me. All of this is coming from someone who has never actually owned a boat either so break everything down in simple terms for a retard.
Shalom about 2 sheckles and you forget the property taxes
the smaller a boat is the less comfortable it is to sleep in because it gets rocked a lot more, boats also get exponentially more expensive as they get larger.
want to skimp on rent just camp on the outskirts of town and get a cheap gym membership for the showers
Cuddy cabins are often pretty small. Maybe look up "cabin cruiser" or "liveaboard" for more results. Maintenance can be tough sometimes, but it really depends. An old motor you buy second hand from a guy on craigslist could be a great bargain or a dangerous money sink.

The luxuries you mention are possible but they aren't exactly cheap. You might be able to do internet fine when in port, so long as you've got cell service and a mobile hotspot. Electricity can be iffy just due to the nature of mixing it with water, but it can be done right. Running water is a matter of how cheap or expensive you want to go. Theoretically, you could just use like camp gear that includes a foot pump to move water. Alternatively, along with fancy electric work, you could more or less have a floating RV.

Entry fee can be steep, but if you sell off a lot of your possessions (no where to put it on a boat) you might come closer. Selling your car would probably work well. Do some research though.

I hope you find happiness as well anon. If Scotland doesn't work out for you you're always welcome here if you know how to pull teats. Even if you don't there's a rad waterfall right behind my house that's cool to listen to late at night. Or go crashing over it in a kayak if you're feeling adventurous
We're pretty much the same in our feelings, only I constantly had housemates and partners living with me that I barely tolerated and was at a constant verge of screaming at. The first two years after moving was ultimate peace and quiet because nobody even noticed I moved aside from my best mate and ex-ex girlfriend
>just because you generally like being alone doesn't mean you should disregard social needs if you change your lifestyle
This, but recognize your "needs" aren't keeping in contact with that guy you worked in an office with 10 years ago who used to rub you up the wrong way, or that bastard that fucked your ex when you broke up with her, or that creepy boss that's trying to stay in contact because they fear you'll give some shitty company secrets away that you've already forgotten about because you stopped giving a shit the moment you left

I live in France so I don't think I'll ever make it to Canada and if I ever do, you might not be on that board anymore but thank you for the invite, I've never milked a cow but I'll probably learn on my way to Scotland if I need money.

>The first two years after moving was ultimate peace and quiet because nobody even noticed I moved aside from my best mate and ex-ex girlfriend
It's not the first time I hear that kind of story. On youtube some guy made a compilation of stories from redditors who decided to "go buy some cigarettes" and never came back, and the conclusion was almost always the same: Nobody except one friend realized they had disappeared. Sometimes, you're just better off on your own, lifting, learning, and working on whatever dreams you have.
I've moved to the countryside about two years ago when I was 32. Dropped the job, returned to my original field you can do over the internet. You can cut a lot of expenses in this country if you live frugal. I collect rainwater, collect my own wood, grow veggies, etc. I will be getting chicken for eggs this year too.
My income has been solely from making and selling /d/ stuff in Blender and C4d.

I second what other anon said. Money, stress, material comforts and such, it is nice. But I have no friends, no gf, and I am very aware it is not good and doable long term without going mental.
You can start with deleting your wojak and frog folders. It's a small step, but it will help
