I suppose there is something to that, the re-use angle!Jackdaw, I told you not to look But I understand, you just wanted another flower pot for Black Hawk Marina Garden is Bayfield.
Realistically, the good news is that is that someone (other than myself) will get use out of it and save it from the landfill. If it hadn't broken the mast in two places, I'd been inclined to use it as an open bow sailboat.
It is really amazing considering it snapped a solid Oak branch that was almost a foot in diameter. I never imagined fiberglass to be that strong. It also makes me much more committed to try to find the exact same model of boat to replace it. The fiberglass company that was contracted to build these boats was not in the boat building business. They made fiberglass stadium seating. The concern always was if the American boats were really built to the same spec and quality as the Australian counterpart. I'm not sure they were as light as the Oz built boats, but sure seem to be solid enough.
Call the dump before you start cutting it into pieces. The dumps around here (Florida) take complete hulls, if they have had the spars removed. It's already on the trailer, so if they take it, just go. They will help you get it off the trailer with their heavy equipment. If not, have them tell you where they want it, drive to that spot, set two anchors by hand, tie them off to the stern cleats or something even more solid (swing keel?) and drive away, pulling the trailer right out from under the boat. I've done it here multiple times, when I was helping salvage boats.OK, my brother-in-law backed out on the deal. My sister decided she would only except a pontoon boat. So now I have to figure out how to get rid of the hull. I called the local dump and they referred me to a junk dealer. I don't want a junk dealer. I don't need a middle man. Frustrating.
