That brings up an interesting point. Is it illegal to have open containers on the boat up there? Just curious. Only law down here is that the driver can't be legally drunk.

We do that once the trashcan is full but for some reason I hate digging through an ice chest full of empties. Some OCD thing I guess.

Somewhere along the way we picked up one of these. Works pretty slick as it attaches to any smooth surface with suction cups and holds kitchen trash bags.

BINGO! I always encourage my passengers drink hard alcohol.

3 fifths of booz and a couple two liters of mix vs 48 beers. 5 empty bottles at the end of the day vs 48. LOL

Yeah, but then you have to deal with a bunch of drunks pouring drinks in your boat all day. I have this image in my head of my cabin covered in cranberry and vodka. I let them drink hard liquor but the rule is, only make drink while in the idle zone or stopped and the cup has to have a lid and a straw.

Like Michigan, I suppose if you are worried about the deposit, you really shouldn't own a boat The deposit pays for maybe one gallon of gas...which is about 1.5 miles according to my current calculations, less if I keep pushing the go stick

I toss them in the sink/cooler in front of the passenger seat, then use the sink water to rinse out.

Stupid deposits...

EDIT: Or invite friends from Toledo and tell THEM to bring the deposit free beer

We save the better plasitc bags like from Target, Gap, Old Navy etc. (tons around Christmas)
Tougher; less puncture, tear resistant than cheaper plastic grocery bags.
User smaller to medium sized, the huge ones clutter and take up too much space, get heavy.

I would not try to put a large single trash in bilge, too much opening the hatch. Just tie off and start another. (use a master in the bilge if you need multiple containment.
Try to rinse as many cans as possible with just a slosh of water before crushing to minimize sticky drips.

LEO harrassments have gotten worse, I have started policing up tight when leaving. Remove all day's "probable cause evidence" and even suggest a "spacer" for the ride back as long as its not too much of a party buzz kill.

You print up bar codes on full page sticker paper. Slice the bar codes up. Put them on the cans. Bring them to Michigan and get 10 cents each in the machines......Or you could sink them. They won't hurt anything on the bottom will they? Maybe hermit crabs will move into them.
