    Aluminum sand scoop...black hands!

    I hunted today for six hours on the beach, and my scoop hand gets filthy!

    When we got back to the rental, I got my wife’s nail polish remover (acetone) and wiped down the handle and brace down to the scoop, and taped it all off. I them gave it the first coat of Rust Oleum Appliance epoxy, and will recoat it after one hour. It should be ready to use tomorrow morning, or whenever I get back to the beach. I think this should resolve the filthy hand problem every time I use it...crossing my fingers! I’ll let you know how it works out after the first hunt.

    Sorry for the sideways pictures. I took them the right way, but the software rotated them 90 degrees. But you guys are smart, and you get the idea!

    Get a glove for your left hand. Eventually all that shiny stuff on the scoop that's causing the problem will get rubbed off through use.
