Getting rid of old gear?

10 posts in this topic

So, I have a question. When I purchased my boat it had some electronics on it. I wanted to upgrade it, so I did. Now, what to do with this stuff? It all works, not the greatest shape. I can't seem to find values on any of this with no one selling any thing like them. One is a Lowrance global map that needs to updated(not sure the number on it). One is a lowrance fish finder, don't know the number on that one either. The screen is black and white with a yellow back lite that kinda flickers. The factory radio I might just throw out. The knobs on it stick and I am not sure if the tape deck even works.

Would it be best to put it on the for sale thing here, or hsolist or pawn shop?

you can check out hsolist, you might be suprised at the prices you get. I've sold 3 depthfinders so far on hsolist and have got top dollar every time. Often, the bidder already owns the same model that has issues and doesn't want to replace the other wiring/transducer on a discontinued product.

I checked out hsolist, not really interested in setting up a pay pal account, and I own no credit cards and have no idea where to price these things. I searched hsolist and found nothing that I have. They cant be that old off a 2000 crestliner unless the previous owner put some stuff he found on there.

Your not sure what the model number is because you can't remember or all the markings are rubbed off. If you find the numbers you should be able to google it to find possible values. Or if you aren't sure, just put a dollar value or best offer on it and post it this site or craigs list - if no one bites just keep dropping the price until it sells.

I would do the same thing as NCLaker mentioned, if you can't find a value for the units, just put a price and them and keep droping until someone buys them.

You MUST take pictures to post on either craig's, or hsolist if you want to have any chance at all of selling them.

Craig's also has a "free" section if you feel generous. You could probably get by without pics if you listed them under the free section.

Since these items dont have much value anyway, why not give them away to a friend, or someone in need of these items! If you dont know of anyone give them away here on FM, there are plenty of people in need of cheap items on this site. You wont be out much, do to the items value of maybe $20, and you wont have to worry about trying to get rid of them and the items going bad in a day or two and having someone mad that they got ripped off. And you will get the good feeling inside that you have helped someone, and you never know, the person that gets it just may end up being a new friend!

Okay, so I figured out what models they are. One is a globalmap 2400 with the external lgc12w ant. and the other is a X85 fish finder. I can not seem to able to find any of these for sale. Anybody able to find values on these for me? I know the X85 is probably not going to get me anything, but the 2400 should be worth something. I am trying to save up some dollars to get a bimmi top for my crestliner or even some down riggers.

    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.     
    • My local meat market will sell you one. They did for a friend of mine about a year ago. If you want to take a trip to Belle Plaine I can hook you up, but you should be able to find it at a meat market near you also.
    • Looking for any intel one would be willing to share for bass fishing on Long Lake just south of Park Rapids.  Our family will be headed there in a couple of weeks.  From what I gather its predominately a walleye lake.  I'm just trying to get a general feel of the lake and hopefully shorten the learning curve.   Thanks, BK
