Don't forget the USFS and DF&G do not want to see gas sitting on a dredge, nor do they want to see any sitting on the bank close to the water. Put it in a safe, level, shady spot away from the water. Leave the lid cracked enough so that as it warms up and expands, none will come out. Also topping off your oil, we use old squirt type detergent bottles. no mess and none into the waterway.
Never try to top off your gas with a hot engine, in the summertime it takes a little longer for it to cool down. Lets all be safe out there this year and nobody get any citations for stupidity.

And don't leave a plastic can with gas in it overnight in the bushes.....bears love to chew them up even with gas in them!

I have even had them chew up the plastic gas tank on the dredge, gas and all!

In Alaska, I was too far from home and didn't want to haul all the stuff back and forth by boat. I used "Bear Boards" to protect everything. :doublethumbsup:

I know the next question: What Are Bear Boards?


Well if you scroll down you will have your answer.




















These were boards I laid down in front of my cabin door, to keep the bears from tearing the door down.

The boards I used on my dredging equipment were larger. I had to completely encircle the equipment with them

Rich, the boards were laid down for when I was not there.
