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.

    • Just realized that I had a brain fert on the canadian bacon I made. brined it for 10 days in pops brine recipe but I forgot to put a T of the cure in. I have already eaten about a 3 inch chunk. The rest has been in the freezer for a week. Is it a big gamble to eat it?? 
    • Yeah you should have known better lol.  Trying to have a conversation with a guy who is butthurt over a business that is getting tax subsidies because his isn't.  However if his was offered one he would be jumping at the opportunity.     #hypocritesandfrauds
    • Hey Kaepernick if you weren't so busy taking a knee and being angry you would see I already answered this question.  
    • I would put the sump on its own circuit without a GFI.  Leave the backup on a different circuit. I'd also add another or bigger battery to the back up. Since your water table is so high it might be a good idea to have an alarm on the backup. I'd bet there is some sort of app that can alert your smart phone. Breakers can become "weak".  One having been tripped from an overloaded circuit probably more to blame then age though.  Or it was bad to begin with. There are some counterfeit breakers as well so buy at a reputable suppler. Yes the pump can wear. Both the motor and the pump wear out. Having a float stick and pump run continually isn't good for the pump. What type float do you have?  If its a tethered ball type IMO they are going to fail sooner then later because they can get hung up on its own cord and pump. Of coarse the float on a rod should be checked and cleaned to be sure it can't get hung up.  
    • Have YOU asked the DNR any of those questions?     Has anyone here reported any vehicles they've seen crossing the state line with whole deer?     When we we buy our licenses there are regulation books available, and inside there is a handy section that points out NEW regulations for the year.  Should we not read at least that part?   I agree the new law would be better served if there was some heavy patrolling at the high volume state crossings, but with limited resources they sure could use some help from us.   I'm not a blind DNR defender here.  But I don't buy the conspiracy theory and won't blame them EXCLUSIVELY for all that ails our deer herd.  We do plenty of damage on our own.   Since deer and elk farms seem to be sources of CWD, why are they allowed to exist any longer?  Hint: The DNR doesn't have the authority to determine the existence of those farms.   Is there really only one scapegoat?
    • We came home from Thanksgiving to find that the circuit breaker that the sump pump is on had tripped and the basement floor was wet. We're in the process of replacing the carpet now. We have a pretty high water table and the sump pump runs a lot. I do have a battery backup pump, but once that battery dies, game over. I've been trying to figure out why the breaker tripped. The only other things that were running on that circuit while we were gone were the charger/controller for the backup pump, the water softener (very little amp draw) and the freezer. All the lights were off. There was a storm here with heavy rain and some snow while we were gone and someone suggested lightning may have been a factor, but why that would affect only that circuit escapes me. I've had the breaker trip twice since. The first time I had all the lights on and a fan running. The second time also lights on, running the drill press and shop vac. I've done that many times before with no trouble. Now I'm watching it like a hawk and we're nervous about being gone for any length of time. Questions: 1. If the float switch stuck "on", would the pump eventually overheat and trip the breaker? 2. Would the pump draw more amps as it ages? It's a high-quality cast-iron pump, probably 12-14 years old. 3. Do circuit breakers get weaker with age? I'm also considering getting an electrician in here to run a separate circuit for just the sump pump. I don't want to go through this again.

        Alpha trout at head of feed lane. Maybe in fast broken water Subordinates all over hole but not close to alpha. Cast into top most part of fast funnel. Alpha waiting part way down the skinny feed funnel. Best to hit fast water to hide the splash. When wading, wake control a large factor here. Stay out of water if you can. Make first cast count or will get only dinks in this hole.

      Bigger trout from area wintering at bottom of slow water near the fast water. Not in fast water. Subordinates chased out of hole by bigger trout. Best to hit fast water to hide the splash. Cast into top of feed funnel and slow retrieve so presentation will get down to trout sitting on bottom just back from the end of the fast water.

      Trout extra wary on sunny no vegetation winter outing. Don't slap hole with line. Stay out of the water when attacking hole. Will be a one fish "only" hole due to water clarity and zero vegetation in hole. Any smart fish will spook when one is battled and drug through this clear non-vegetated hole.
    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
