Disposing of a trashed c-boat.

Post by ezwater » Tue Jul 21, 2015 10:11 pm

Y'all have trashed a lot of boats. What has been your experience when you have to get a useless boat off your property? Dump it in a ravine? Negotiate with your trash pickup service?

I once had a Sage that had cracked terminally below the seat pedestal. The trash people would not touch it until I cut it in half and piled it vertically into a large trash can. 8)

Now, I have an old Phoenix c-1 and an old 18.5' Moore Voyageur that are past the possibility of resale. What should I do to get rid of them?

Cut them in half, stuff one end in the other.

Cut in half, stand pointy end up, paint green, drill holes, poke Christmas lights through the holes, sell them at a craft fair as seasonal decorations.

Bring them to my boat boneyard where old boats become new and, ahh, "different" boats.

Just being willing to try is half the battle.

I'm surprised Blackfly hasn't given you a discount and trade for "Jeremy's Bane" as that is truly a Frankenboat :D But recycling is good... :)

I would post it as a free boat on a club website. Someone will come and get it, and you don't have to do anything other than post on a web site. I did that once for a cracked Mohawk Viper 12 when I got a new boat, and I got a lot of responses. People were actually fighting for the boat, begging me not to let other people buy it first. I think it has something to do with the free part, because I had tried to sell the boat for $50 on the same web site and wasn't able to sell it.
