Re: When it's time for boat heaven...

The ones with lead keels are easy to get rid of. We took a 26 footer to a local scrapyard and he was happy to get it.

Of course we did have a low boy fifth wheel trailer and a one ton truck, along with a crane to set the boat on top it. The scrap yard was five miles inland.

Re: When it's time for boat heaven...

Some years ago I argued for weeks with many members of this forum about the concept of discarding of glass and metal over the side when voyaging instead of saving it for the next available dumpster - I was told that I was seriously contributing to the eco-end-of-the-world and was totally irresponsible and should be ashamed of myself.

Now it seems we're OK with dumping the whole boat "over the side".

Amazing how things evolve.

Nothing has changed for me though - when I'm at sea I still put my glass and metal over the side.
