Re: Online boat auction, Toronto

Anybody up there dismantling and scrapping Boats? Seems so complicated there cant be too many but in the end there is some value to Keels and some hardware. The rest is a liability. These Boats mostly look to far gone. The one hunter could be a steal though.

Not that I am aware of. Disposal fees are about $100 per ton, and a bin rental runs you $400. Add $15/hr for a couple laborers to help you cut it up, plus a few $$ for storage fees, misc, and you're at $1500 pretty quickly for a 30 footer.

I think some of these boats have been picked clean already.

I agree with you about the Hunter.

Cool site! If I was allowed to have any more boats, I'd pay the $25 for the Nordica, they're tough little boats and they're so simple, neglect would have limited impact.

I agree with you about the Hunter.
I drive by a lot of abandoned Boat yards between Norfolk and DC, Baltimore area. Littered with yesterdays' Yachts, inevitable shame it is but only when land is developed and cleaned is it worthwhile to scrap the Hulks. Self tailers sell right away, rigging is mostly scrap with Lead being the most valuable item. If its iron or steel shot its not worth the separation costs, maybe a motor or two but mostly a big liability. At least around here they are not littering the waterways like FL.

I think only with a pile to dismantle would it be worth someones time to set up for it, to go around offering this service would not be a good business model. Can you tell I've spent a lot of time thinking about it? Think about the forensics of hull delamination and keel bolt failure what we could learn from taking them apart, OK now I've gone too far.

They are at my marina. I have had a quick look at them. I'll be there tomorrow to haul out my boat. Let me know if there is anything you want me to look at or take a picture of.

I am interested in the Ericson 39 (lot 7). There is no mast in the pictures. I was wondering it it has a rig, and what kind of condition it is in. Any info or perceptions of the boat would be appreciated. Thanks.
