It would be nice if you would clean up your mess after diving.

Taint nutten rong wit pullen sometin wort-while oot o' da dumster!

First time I went to dump garbage in a dumpster (of a new to me marina) there was a really good condition bimini top in it; stainless frame and all! It fit perfectly onto fly bridge of a 31' sedan I'd recently purchased. I figure the used-value was in the 2 to 3 hundred $$ range.

Yes - I do keep my eyes open around marina dumpsters. But, the goods best be on top and easily retrievable. I like free-diving in clean water - not dirty-diving in dumpsters!

She is a rare breed indeed. Built during the union takeover of the plant she is a one-off, a T160 (Yes, T160, not a misprint), 750 Bonneville twin.

The other two are a 67' Daytona 500 and a 69' T120 Bonneville 650

Dumpster find

While we are on the topic of motor bikes and dumpster diving...true story. Several years ago, probably around 2006, the dilapidated, near tear down house down the block was sold when the guy who lived there died. There were several old cars on the property, an old Alpha and a few other bits and bots, rusted old hunks of stuff. One day there was a smallish shipping container that was being loaded with all sorts of rusted old motor bike frames, fuel tanks etc. Really, it looked like junk to me. The fellow who was loading the container told me these were old British motor bikes from the 1950's and 1960's. I'm not sure what make he said they were, but he said they were kind of like the classic Indians. BSA's? I don't know for sure. But it was important enough that these had been purchased by a collector and were being sent back to England. All told I think there were about 20 frames. I got the sense this was a rare and important find.

Very similar to Jim's story, I once bought a dumpster full of old artillery wheels at an quarterly Govt. auction in Ft. Meade, MD. I was in the antique truck restoration business at the time and had a 1926 International 60 series that had the same 6 X 36 solid rubber tires as were mounted on the artillery wheels. I bought the dumpster for 220 bucks and there were 17 wheels in there. Kept six for my International and sold them for 200 bucks each and still got another 200 bucks for the dumpster when I was done with it 5 years later. It was one of those lucky days. I guess those tires would be worth a boat-buck each now.

I picked up some teak oval railings from the dumpster. About 20' although a lot of it was curved for the bow rail.
I have made a lot of small stuff and repaired many pieces over the years from that find.
I still have a lot of small pieces and one ~4 ft long.

To me it was a fine find.

I have also left old, yet good, fenders, chairs, and other pieces after they took up space for a few years without finding a real use for them.

All or the vast majority of my three strand white travel lines are from my marina's dumpters. It seems there are some owners that confuse dirty with worn. Picked up some brown where the line wraps a creosoted piling? Into the dumpster. Picked up some green? Into the dumpster.

One man's trash can be another man's......

However... Usually, one woman's trash stays where they put it.

So now you have color coded lines, how cool is that?

Many years ago I spent about a year in a very high end marina, and the dumpster diving was incredable, but most folks put the good stuff on the side. Folks with expensive boats throw out the most amazing stuff. I scored a NEW section of 1/2 X 60ft nylon line once. As I was hauling it away, a guy said "I didn't think that would last long" He just had no use for it, but I still use it two boats later. Later someone left a perfectly good roller furler along with a nearly new jib that just happened to fit my boat. Stereo's, TV's, dvd's, and tools were comon. I kinda miss that fun.
