Disposal of a fiberglass boat

12 posts in this topic

Anyone know how to dispose of a junk fiberglass boat in MN? Preferrably on the west side of the Mpls area. Thanks!

If you can't give it away, search the yellow pages for a landfill in your area. Might be fun for the guy driving the loader to run over.

What are the details on the boat - size, how bad of shape, etc? We are looking for a (free) boat to use for firearms safety training field day, doesn't need to float.

I think it does float. Has a bad engine though. Here is what he says about it. Where are you located? I can probably deliver it if you and he both say yes. Thanks!

1964 18 ft starcraft 110 mercruiser, alum. bad engine.

Chances are its too large for our needs but I will check with the instructors. Is it an inboard engine?

Landfill is only place unless somebody wants it for free.

List it on e-bay for $.01. Local pick-up only.

I did this with an old boat with a bad motor last Nov. It sold for over $100, and the guy drove up from Chicago to get it.

Someone may need parts from the motor.

You should pull the engine and drive first if it goes to the landfill. If the drive is good its worth some money and the engine has a lot of parts that can be sold.

craigslist . (XXX) Has a "free" section, if you want to give it away.

I guess they want a 12-14 aluminum boat with bench seats for the class. Sorry.

Old fiberglass boats are some of the coolest, most in-demand playground toys that you'll see at elementary schools with imaginative/creative administrators.

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you

      Hi everyone I am new to this chat. I was wondering what stage you think the panfish are in right now anything helps. Thanks Luke

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.
