Dispose of Fiberglass Boat

So, some of you might remember me from last year talking about the best way to remove paint from an old Cal 21 swing keel (1973). Well, we are relocating, and the project has to stop.

I have advertised on Craig's list and a couple of forums to see if anyone wants the old thing to work on, but no one is interested, so I am going to dispose of it. Does anyone have any idea who / what / when / where / why to get rid of an old fiberglass boat?

Do I need to chop it up, etc?

I'm sneakily thinking of putting it on the trailer and leaving it by the side of the road. But, that'd be a lousy thing to do.

Any advice?

Thanks,

Wes

A freind of mine had his Fishing boat crushed and put in a skip after he had stripped every useful thing off her

Where is this boat? I might know someone that could give her some TLC.

Have you tried donating it to a charity? This can be the best approach for all parties involved. You get a tax write-off for the final sale value, the charity gets some cash, and someone gets a project to work on. Saves you the time and effort of stripping the hardware off before paying someone to crush and remove the hull.

i second the charity, most if they cant sell it will strip and trash it.

how about sea scouts, a local church, you local high school shop program. there are lots of other options. the high school shop program might just use it as painting and body work practice.

That's exactly where I was going with it...just needed to know where the boat is. There is an organization called "Boat Angel" on eBay that will auction it for you. Not really sure of their requirements but worth a look.

mention where you are, and you may have a few interested people here on the board. Recently disposed of a boat at the local landfill. Here they charge by the pound for boat disposal, last boat cost $39.00, and weighed about 220lbs. It's typically classified as an inert material, so no hazardous materials fees. (Is it just me, or does everyone else think the 'hazardous materials' fees are really stupid when they bury it right alongside everything else?) Ken. Ken.
