  • Black Plastic Bag Cutter? Spurs?

    I went for swim today to remove a black Hefty bag from my wheel. The water was a brisk 56* but my surf suit made it manageable.

    Homeless folks live on the banks of storm channels in my area and, with the first inch of rain, the inshore area is mine field of trash bags.The Hippies worried about plastic straws pay no mind to the true trash vector in our midst

    Does anyone have experience with Propeller Spurs or something similar? I'm thinking it may be worth a try.

    I believe plastic bags would just wrap up in the spurs. Other than a cage, I don't know what would work.

      Thanks Jerry. The damn things wrap so tight on the shaft I have to tear them off in pieces. Just part of the fun I guess. This was better than the lobster pot float episode, no suit on the boat for that adventure, just skivvies.

          My nightmare has always been running over a lobster float at night,they are everywhere here. Won't have too many chances left to do it- just sold the place after a week on the market. Have not had a chance to put the boat in all season but have to so I can get it on the trailer properly for the trip back to Illinois.

            Property is hot everywhere Gary. My little neighborhood has changed in the last year. We have a lot of "really important" people from Raleigh all of a sudden. Don't know how us poor beach hicks lived all these years without all their "know how to do it".

            Tuner, I asked on the "Down East Boat " forum and there has been no good answer yet.

                  Nice when you actually see what a product can do. Can't believe how wonderful you Californians are. Waterfront property for the homeless. Awesome.

                    There are quite a few prop protector designs with similar YouTube videos, its like watching a train wreck.

                    California was a great place live, not so much now....Taxation without representation and plenty of representation without taxation!
