Default Pool noodle hacks!

I use cheap pool noodles for lots of things other than floating my sorry...Face.

What does the WC community do that we should all see.

My list

Boat buckle protection

I put them over the top of my windshield, helps protect the tarp and makes it fit a bit tighter.

They are great for a number of items you don't want to loose if they fly out of the boat. Those pictured are a couple I'm going to use......today.

Put a section on the leech tote, and of course around the "floatin Minnesotin" (the plastic whiffle ball bat that we use as an extender to allow you to make it over the side rail when having too, aahh, go #1.) And several other useful ideas.

They make a good float for my drift sock and also make a nice vertical marker for big waters.

Never, never, ever hang it over the rail to relieve yourself.

Rather, use a pee bucket to do your business. Then, dump and rinse the bucket and go back to work.

A lot of bodies have been recovered over the years, with the business hanging out and the zipper down from fellows who were answering natures call - had a wave hit the boat and over they went in the wind. By the time that they came up, the boat was out of reach and they were unable to get to the boat in the cold water wearing heavy wet clothing.

Be safe

An excellent Pee bucket can be made by cutting the side out of a gallon oval oil container. Nice and large and a nice handle on the end for holding. Obviously wash out the container after cutting out the side. The containers are free after changing the oil in your vehicle of if you use a 2-stroke engine - after using the oil in the container. One in the bow of the boat and one in the stern for folks at each end of the boat.

Women appreciate it as well since it fits so nicely and with the rounded edges of the oil container doesn't chaff sensitive areas.

I'm building boat fenders right now out of the 5" mega noodles. Will post pictures when done. They also make great door bumpers in the garage, help protect drywall from dents.

They are perfect insulation for inside the tower portion of a Kegerator.

The thin white crappy insulation that came with the kegerator, replaced it with section of pool noddle, perfect insulation.(I don't have a picture of the after)
