Used Boat Acessories?

Recommended Posts

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...

    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
    • You got it, Borch!  I was disappointed with how the season ended, but you're definitely right!  I also learned a trick this year- cards!  Morgan really enjoyed playing cards with me in the blind.  It was a good way to pass the time and we enjoyed it quite a bit.  We had a great season together and enjoyed it a ton!     That last encounter we had was really something!  I'm convinced the worst thing birds can do to a bowhunter is to come in to the deeks is stand there and stare.  I'd rather they hung up and didn't come in or did pretty much anything but that.  It makes it virtually impossible to get a bow drawn!  The turkey was at about 5 yards, because I knew we I needed one close for Morgan.  However, at five yards and staring directly in the direction of the blind, she was smart to not try to draw.  That dang bird stood there for two full minutes and didn't move a muscle.  Morgan had a smile from ear to ear and at one point told me "I was so excited and my heart was pounding so hard I thought I might die!"     It would have been a slam dunk with her crossbow, but she wanted to get one with a vertical bow.  I'm proud of her for sticking with it and she said "I'm just fine with not shooting one, Dad."  I'm glad she's ok with that.  I wish I was more ok with it...  but, that's hunting!  
    • Sounds like he is going to bring "fire" to the team haha.  Hoping he can come up with something to do with all the aging players who aren't living up to their contracts.     Also heard that Coyle played the last 2 months with torn ligaments in his wrists.  Going in for surgery.  Kind of an eye opener really, Coyle with torn wrist ligaments is better than anything they could've moved up that is healthy?  Uh oh....
    • Hey, it's all good. Morgan and you spending time together in the outdoors and getting a close encounter is what it's all about.     Sometimes the birds win and we simply run out of time.
