    Default Where can I get rid of a junk boat?

    Hi guys and gals, I'm the FNG, and need some help here. I just bought a new (to me) boat, but it didn't come with a trailer...so I bought a nice used trailer, but the seller made me take the junker boat that was on it too.

    Does anyone know of a good way to get rid of this old boat, so I can pick up my new boat? I called the local landfill and they won't take it.

    Thanks for the help,
    Hunter

    Remove fuel, oil, etc. and get to work with a chainsaw and/or sawzall. Cut into smaller pieces that can be disposed of (properly). Dustmask mandatory. Actually kinda fun!

    That does sound fun! Unfortunately I don't have anywhere to do that, except the garage...and I'm pretty sure my wife would divorce me if I cut it up in there!

    You might try other landfills. One county out of eight in this area will accept boats. Also, check with your local government. Sorry, cutting it up is the limit of my disposal knowledge. I'm sure one of the other boat dudes here will have a novel approach to this.

    The Sign says:

    Free Boat

    The wife says it goes or I do!

    I tried the craigslist idea, but people kept flagging my ad as spam. I have no idea why, but they kept doing it. I ended up getting ahold of a landfill transfer station within a half hour who would take it. Only cost $30, so I'm happy. I did feel kinda bad seeing a good hull (the hull was the only good part) get demolished by a skid steer. May she rest in peace.

    Thanks again,
    Hunter

    Hopefully this didn't have any collector/restoration value

    Each time a boat is sold, the value becomes diminished. Each time a piece or part is not maintained, repaired or replaced the value becomes diminished. Every year the boat is placed in the sun without a cover the value becomes diminished. Then one day the weeds are taller then the bow, the tires become flat and the seats show their foam. At this time the bobcat humanely devourers the carcass. It the circle of marine life. RIP.
