What to do with old anchor and chain

So i got myself a new anchor (Spade 25 kg), new chain (100m 8mm G70) and new windlass (Lewmar X2).
For kedge / stern anchor I have Fortress FX35

Now I have 2 old anchors - CQR 16kg and Britany 16kg and 2 pieces of 10mm 25m chain.

Any recommendations if I should keep any of it or just put next to the trash can?
I tried selling on local eBay, but no success.

Re: What to do with old anchor and chain

You could try posting a note at your local boatyards and similar venues advertising the anchors. However, personally I wouldn't take a CQR even for free.

Zero value, but leave them by the bins with a note "Free to a good home" and they may be of use to someone on a limited budget. Good deeds and karma are always worth banking for the future.
