    Trash bag holder for an outdoor party/camper so the bag stays open.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    Well I am suprised that none of the guys on the very East coast near the water like Chuck or Peter have responded.

    To kill this thread and put you out of your misery this is a escape vent for a lobster trap. I only knew because a really nice fishing information booklet handed out at the information center on entering Cape Cod had a whole section on recreational lobster fishing.

    I never knew that there were regs as to just how the traps have to be built etc. This escape vent has to be attached via means that would biodegrade and allow a lobster to escape in the event that the trap gets off its trap line.

    But its primary purpose is to allow lobsters of non reg size to leave the trap as well.

    I find it quiet interesting that here we have a device intended to save the stocks and also do justice to those that have been trapped but the trap abandoned all what one might say are good environmental management and then its allowed to be made from solid plastic and its regulated that after a period it should detach from the trap. So save the lobster but fill the ocean with non biodegradeable plastic molded rectangles.

    You gotta love the regulators. This one did wash up on shore though along with a few barnacles stuck to it.
