Used Gear?

I am in the New York City area and I am trying to find a place to buy used gear. Right now I am looking for a propane stove, but I will have more needs in the future.

What is the best way to find used gear?

What happens to all the boats totaled by insurance companies or abandoned at yards?

Are their sailboat junkyards?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Craigslist is a good source, as are the consignments shops list found on the Good Old Boat website. Several are in Rhode Island and Connecticut and reasonably close to NYC.

or search this very site for the extensive list I posted this year

look for 'used parts'

the list has about 20 used shops including several in the NE.

I just posted a two burner stove/oven, aluminum tank, storage locker, regulator I pulled from my C&C 34 on Sailnet and Craigslist.

I've bought several things off Craigslist. The Trailor Sailor classifieds are also very good.

Good luck.
