Used Boat Acessories?

19 posts in this topic

This may be a stupid question, but is there such a thing as a boat salvage yard or any place that would sell used boat accessories in the southern metro? I know there's a few places that deal pretty much exclusively in used outboards and parts but I'm looking for accessories. I'd like to put a pedestal seat in my 14' Lund that's been home-customized. And if it's possible not to pay $60-$80 bucks for the assembly that would be ideal. It's an older boat and I don't need to buy new, plus, times are tough!

You should be able to get what you need from Fleet Farm, etc and not have to go through a dealer when it comes to pedestals, bases and seats.

I would agree with you Rob. I redid the inside of a boat and purchased mant parts for seating at FF. They had alot of options on hand.

I know some of the things there are not that great of a deal. But some are, and it depends on the time of year.

That's really generous Gregg52! I appreciate it but you're right, I don't get up that way very often (unfortunately). I'll check out Fleet Farm. I was looking at Gander before and it seemed like more than I'd like to spend on my old fishing boat. I also checked out some on-line auctions and Craig's list. Not a whole lot, but that stuff changes by the minute. I appreciate eveyone's suggestions. Open water's only about a month or two away (Down here in So. MN anyway)

Did you call Cabela's in Owatonna and ask for the bargain cave. Never hurts to make a phone call.

Gregg52,

My e-mail's in a previous post. When you get down this way, let me know. I can meet you in Shakopee--it's only 15 min away for me. And I can make it worth your while, I'm not looking for handouts. I just didn't want to buy new if I didn't have to. The base is the cheap part but if you're looking to get rid of a functional cylinder for a pedestal, I'd be happy to meet with you on it if you're in the area. Again, I appreciate it.

For a day trip, there is a boat salvage yard off of HWY 70 not too far west of Siren Wisconsin. Boats galor that are old age, etc. I don't know if it is like a junk-yard or not, but someday I'd sure like to stop in and look around...
