Here's a trick. My office coffee club has switched to the plastic resealable molded in handle type coffee cans. I have been washing them out when empty and they work great as disposable containers for painting/varnishing. I also cut a slit in the lid and keep the brushes suspended in kerosene. I've got a lifetime supply as it is now. The molded in handle improves ergonomics. I supoose they would work for bailing leaky canoes. And they are color coordinated. Red or Green. So whether your canoe is regular or decaf you can have a matching bailer. Good paddling.
