    Have a sawzall or a chainsaw? If so, cut it into small sections and put in black bags for regular garbage pickup. I helped a buddy of mine do this with an old 16 footer. He hacked it into peices and put out some with the garbage each week. within a few weeks the whole boat was gone.
    The only thing that works on an old boat is its owner!

    Not picking on anyone .........

    (watch the dots) .........

    Forgot to move the dots.... Any town or city that cannot handle the waste of it's citizens,and haul the waste off,will find such waste in the woods ,fields and environs.

    Probably should not have exploded like this,but you might notice I feel there has to be a way to get rid of your boat.

    and a tv,monitor,thermometer,and what else.

    I gave mine away for parts. The marine mechanic had two weeks to pull what he wanted, scrap the rest, and bring me back my trailer.

    Well he grabbed what he wanted, never returned my calls, and left the boat sitting on my trailer behing his shop until the day I needed to pick up my new boat.

    Now the old boat is chained to a tree and laying on the ground behind his shop.

    A proper white trash citizen would sit it in his front yard then refuse to sell it when someone offers 50 bucks for it cause "Your gonna git around to fixin it one day".
