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.

      My buddy has the 5 w/GPS. When you combine it with a lakemap chip it's a really sweet set-up for ice fishing as you can pinpoint spots on lakes and mark your location for the next time you're out.  I don't know anything about the sonar vs. flasher issue or if there is a slight delay. All I know is I want one.   Also, there are down imaging and side imaging versions available, and ones with and without GPS. Be sure you take that into consideration when you're shopping. I've gotten excited about some pretty good deals I've seen on the Helix 5, only to realize it doesn't have GPS. If you're going to use your for ice fishing I think you would want the GPS version.

      Whenever I want to take a kid out fishing and keep them entertained, then I always go to Kelly Dudley.  In the summer, it is impossible not to catch a steady stream of sunfish.  I have never tried it in the winter, but suspect it would be a good place to keep an eight year old busy.   If you go out, make absolutely sure to bring ice cleats.   There is an indoor fish camp going on in Faribault this weekend.  http://www.maxsolutionsonline.com/cityoffaribault/Customer/ActivityDetail.aspx

      Are you looking for this summer?   Are you looking for cabin type resorts, camping, tent/RV?   Here is a place to start:   http://business.parkrapids.com/list/category/resort-cabin-327   I live in the area so haven't spent to much time at different resorts but I've always liked R&D Resort on Straight Lake in Osage, MN which is only 8 miles from Park Rapids. Isle O' Dreams is another very cool place to stay.

      Lots of water on the ice now where people have their houses. Took my house off yesterday and the plowed roads were pretty slushy already.
