Where can I dispose of an old fiberglass boat?

6 posts in this topic

Hello all. Looking to get rid of my first boat. Its a '56 fiberglass in poor shape. Anyone know of a junkyard type place around the cities? (North Metro preferred). Not looking to get any money for it, just a place to drop it off.
Thanks in advance!

There is a boat junkyard on 65 just north of Ham Lake. I think it's called Benny's. He may take it off your hands if the trailer is usable.

Local landfill charges just regular garbage, they go by pound, so you might want to strip it good, if there's anything salvageable.

I dumped an 18 foot fiberglass boat at the landfill in Burnsville/Savage last summer for about $70. I had to pull it up on top of the pile (nice smell) and they helped me push it off the trailer with a 'dozer. They then drove the 'dozer over it to crush it flat. Pretty impressive sight. The boat held up until he was about 25% over it before it gave.

    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.

    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
