Re: This Is What Happens When You Don't Pay Your Fees . . .

Glad I stumbled across this post! Don't have our boat yet, but we're planning on mooring at Dagmars. Obviously, we plan to stay current, but good to know they don't play around with late accounts, lol.

The local "gypsies" can move too quickly sometimes as in the case of the unfinished dry stored Westsail 32 pilot house that somebody cut "windows" into down along the keel to try and get the lead out... this before they even had the chance to auction it off... too sad!
Abandoned boats don't last long around here!
You sure it was the yard that cut the lead out? There are a lot of older style racers that have had windows cut into the keel to lessen the weight and give the boat more windage (need more moveable ballast, like rail meat) so they can still be competitivet...

Re: This Is What Happens When You Don't Pay Your Fees . . .

That's one thing I've considered these days, scraping boats for the metals. My own keel is worth $2200 as scrap and clean stainless steel it worth $.60 per #. Older boats would have bronze but rare these days. The transportation and yard costs hardly makes it worth what one gets. The boats would have to be free and close to port.

In another 20-30 years there's going to be a lot of old FRP boats out there that no one wants. Recycling FRP is going to be a new challenge. http://www.gogreenfrp.com/pdfs/RecyclingDeadBoats.pdf

Re: This Is What Happens When You Don't Pay Your Fees . . .

A guy owned a piece of land in California. He cut the keel off his Columbia 45 and trucked up into the mountains to his property. Dug a hole and buried it to the hull/deck joint. Ran his outfall plumbing to a ??. Has a small deck next to it and a storage building. He has the tax thing figured and pays just about nothing. Nice home.... Cheap.

Del, I recycled a 27 Catalina without too many problems. I can be done. The lead and steel $$ make up for the cost to recycle it by a long shot.

What gets me is someone is still paying month after month to keep this one.

I have wondered how it will be keeping the older glass boats going. It's always better to reuse then to recycle even if the new boat manufacturers would prefer we don't.

Rebuilding is recycling, w/less energy/petro consumption!
