Otter attachment

4 posts in this topic

How easy/quick is it to attach the Otter portable to the sled? I already own an Otter II that I use for hauling gear. I don't want to buy a second sled so I'd like to use my current one for both purposes.

It's about a 20 minute project even the first time and it is easy. I would not buy or store another sled to avoid the task of attaching the skin and poles unless you were flip flopping often throughout the winter season.

Just make sure your tub is the correct tub and new eneough to fit the new house frames. Older tubs wont work on newer house frames.

I wouldn't be taking the tent on and off. The plastic trim otter uses to attach the tent to the sled is good however it comes off. Have had problems with the tent coming loose from the sled at spots, so I through bolted it on. The tent doesn't take long to put on its just a pain to do often. I always take my portable with me but if you don't want to, get an extra sled. You can put the sled with the cover on it inside the empty sled to store it.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
