    Tiny hole in my aluminum boat

    Depends what caused the hole. Did a rivet fall out? Is it corrosion? Is it physical damage from something sharp? Corrosion would be concerning. Is there more of it elsewhere?

    GARAGE SALE FIND

    The question is this... are there any provisions anywhere to allow someone to legally sell something like this online? If the answer is yes, I think you mind your own business and not be a nosey do-gooder. If the answer is no then make the call. If you are not 100% sure someone is breaking the law, don't get involved. If the person selling the mounts for some reason is doing such legally, now all you are doing is 1) wasting their time 2) creating a lot of stress for them without reason and 3) most likely costing them money. All that because you "think" they might be doing something wrong, not because you "know" they are doing something wrong. Maybe you guys like other people meddling in your business but I don't and I refuse to intervene in anyone else's business if there is any doubt whatsoever as to whether they are breaking the law or not. How would you feel if someone called the MNR because they felt you were fishing within 22.9m of a dam? Or maybe someone didn't see your flashlight in your boat and called the OPP on you? Some people need to get something better to do than tattle tale about something that is really none of their business.

    Just because it is sold online does mean it is legal.

    Check out my link above .....there's a full moose head mount for sale on Ebay for $3000 ....plus $1500 for shipping ......looks like there's already a legal ? business going on selling wildlife . It would be nice for a mnr rep. to chime in , but it looks like a legal "trade" going by what is being sold on line .....

    Tiny hole in my aluminum boat

    I have repaired my aluminum canoe that had as small hole by drilling the hole one size larger for a clean inside rim , then coated the thread of a round head screw with silicone ....added a thin washer with some silicone then added silicone over the head of the screw after tightening it up. It has never leaked.... How about using a pop rivet the right size ? I also had a crack in the canoe floor which was welded ...it hasn't leaked since ( 40 years ago) lol And the canoe has an aluminum patch about 3" x 3" where acid from mud contacted the round transom bottom during the winter & ate a small hole in the bottom .....held in place by rivets & silicone . One time we patched a leak in a 12' alum. boat using pine tree sap ....very sticky stuff ....and it worked also ! ....never thought of JB Weld back in those days ....probably the best solution Scott !

    Tiny hole in my aluminum boat

    3m 5200...here is link to white one Cdn Tire. http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/3m-marine-adhesive-sealant-5200-white-3-oz-0790215p.html#srp

    Tiny hole in my aluminum boat

    My aluminum boat was leaking on 2 back corners so I took out 8-10 rivets and used 3M 5400? I think (Canadian Tire) and then replaced with new rivets but that stuff hardened nice and sealed . It is black and has held up for several years now.
  11. I need some advice please. I will be checking today for more, but I have at least one small hole in my aluminum boat, approximately 1 mm in diameter. The boat has a floor so I can only access the outside for a repair. After searching on-line I believe I have decided to repair the hole with JB Weld Marine unless I get a better suggestion from members here. Suggestions please...

    It' just like poaching tho... if you legally allow any tom.dick or Harry to sell game/fish mounts you might as well be poaching your creating a market for the sale of dead animals... which is illegal........ but since it's not a silverback or white rhino we should just mind our own business it' Canada right that stuff won't happen here.... 👍

    Are you a lawyer? I'm not a lawyer. One thing I despise is people who make false/unfounded accusations of others. Nobody reading an online ad knows 100% for sure that what this person is selling is illegal. Have you ever had false accusations made of you? I have, I have also seen it made of other people. I was indicted for theft over years ago. The trial lasted less than 5 minutes because I was innocent and the person who accused me was a wife beating drug addict. It cost me over 8 thousand dollars and a whole lot of stress. I know people who have had CAS called on them for no just reason and it is traumatic. Too many people "think" they know the law or "think" that something is wrong and set off a whole chain of events because they really do not know. I guarantee law enforcement regularly checks online sale sites looking for things like this. Let them do their job and for the rest of us, unless we are 100% sure someone is breaking the law, leave people alone. It's really that simple. Even more so in this case as no, I am no poaching by ignoring something like this because the animal is already dead. There is nothing about selling a mount that is even remotely close to poaching. Good way to try and spin it though.

    Argh!

    I've had a few of the argh days this year . It seems the deep water carp are still living on their winter fat .....but I've had some good fishing in the shallow warmer water . Saw a guy doing very well on carp a few days ago & he was chumming every 20 -30 minutes , about 2-3 cups each time . I chummed a shallow spot with diced bread & cream corn mix which got the carp interested with some of their catfish & rudd friends .....Better days ahead ....can't get much worse than argh !

    Argh!

    Just another day of frustration on the water to start this year. Fished for close to 6 hours hauling in one small bullhead. Carp were jumping and from time to time seemed to be closing in on my bait but then they would pass. Maybe I’m not chumming enough? Maybe they spooked by something ? Not sure but this local spot was a hotspot for me last year and I’ve been skunked 3 times out this year. Oh well I guess as the saying goes a bad day fishing is better then a good day at work. sorry no pics I can’t be bothered with cats lol

    In that case boog , I think the taxidermist may have a special license or permit to sell ......As genec said , look in the hunting regs .... I did some taxi-d work over the years but only do the odd fish or two yearly for family-friends or very rich dudes ....😁 ....and I wasn't aware just a few years ago that I could not advertise my moose rack for sale . That's why I commented earlier that I'll trade trade them for a nice whatchyougot ?

    Could be a taxidermist trying to recoup money that was owed and client didn't show.

    GARAGE SALE FIND

    Just for my curiosity I Googled Kijiji to see what we cannot sell ..... There is a long list of prohibited items , but there are many mounted specimens for sale . If it's illegal , the mnr would certainly be aware and come down on Kijiji for posting these ads . Personally , I don't see a big problem with someone asking $$$ for a mount that someone paid a good buck for....Maybe the owner passed away ....and the family could use the money ..... Maybe the mnr can advise options for disposing of old mounts.... .....here's some kijiji ads with some pretty pricey mounts ...... https://www.kijiji.ca/b-ontario/taxidermy-mount/k0l9004

    Well if your not sure it's a crime wouldn't be calling mnr be the proper way to find out anyways... besides that if we "minded" our own business you might as well be poaching too because your just as guilty by enabling... If it wasn' for half of this forum not minding their own business most fishing spots would be over run with garbage worse than it is now and people would be pillaging our local fish stock with nothing left for the real outdoorsman and woman...This is our business.. if you fish if you hunt if you like the outdoors than it is our business..... but sure keep enabling just don't b!tch when it' gone

    The way I see it is this... The deer that have been mounted are already dead. No harm is going to come of any animal and really what someone else is selling is none of my business. I really do hate do-gooders who are just looking to stick their nose into someone else's business that they have nothing to do with. I understand the reasoning for not being able to sell mounts as it pertains to hunters only looking to make a profit by specifically trying to kill wildlife to sell the mount. In this case why bother with someone else's business and even more so when you are just an anonymous person to them. What if the mounts for some reason are legal to sell? Do you know for sure that they are not? I really hate people who think they are doing the right thing by reporting a crime when they do not know 100% for certain that it is a crime. I say leave the person alone unless you know without a doubt that they have broken a law. I am pretty sure nobody here can say without a doubt that they are breaking a law as there are exceptions to selling wildlife mounts. Moral of the story... don't cry wolf.

    Thanks for your input on the "carp etiquette" Mike . As a seasoned (not old) carp angler I value your responses . I will have to beef up my carp arsenal and invest in a spod for those "far out" carp . My catapult doesn't quite do it ....(frozen maize balls will zing out there quite a distance) ! I'll also be looking at getting a telescopic "beeper" ....they really do get your attention when eyes are elsewhere ! I'm sure you will soon break the 30# barrier ....I'll be waiting for the photo ...... Cheers .

    That’s ridiculous Smerchly obviously they weren’t seasoned carpers. Anytime I’m out carping and anyone’s around I tend to move on to the next spot. Don’t want to chum and pull someone else’s fish. As for ediqute on how far I got no idea but if it were me I would be doing the same as you reel in the fish is running my way. AnywYs enough of that. Nice report mike! Thanks for the pics.

    Thank you Red. As to your question, Smerch, it's pretty obvious that "Dudes" were novices if they sit next to a fellow carper and complain he's chumming too much. Hogging the water? Please. In the Hammer, if we're at a popular swim, before I plop myself even remotely close to someone, I'll always ask if he's cool with me settling in next to him. Also I'll watch the movement of the line of any fish being played and if it's kiting over to my line, I just reel in. PS...Sounds like you let the long casting carp guy catch all the fish and that was very generous of you. lol
