If anyone wants any gill netting or seine netting for anything let me know. Also herring gillnet...complete with dried herring.

I grabbed some seine web for a neighbour with a tennis court. He was very pleased.

Mike-the first question that comes to mind is- How the hell did they get that in the dumpster?- and the second would then be-How the hell do you get it out?

I'm a garbage man and it is truly depressing what a disposable society we are. The wife instituted a something comes home, something leaves policy due to a decrease in garage space. By the way, here's a nugget. That thing you threw in first to hide from neighbor or whomever, it's the last thing out and final thing I see in the truck!

Check that tank carefully. Usually the reason one is thrown away is a defect. I places one next to a marine dumpster once. It was a red 6 gallon metal gas can for o/b's. Reason: pinhole leak in its bottom. I did take the cap and gauge/hose-attachment apparatus off. As well as scratched "leak" into the red paint. But, not all discarders may be as forthright.

If your tank find in OK - Then Good On ya!

While I was in a high end California marina, I often times found exactly what I needed for a current project. I was once on my way to buy an electric macerator conversion pump for my head when I spied one attached to a complete toilet next to the dumpster. It was new, never used and bolted right up to my toilet in less time than it would have taken to buy one.

Further to my first post above, more relics from a bygone era. Cedar gill net floats I found under a disposal bin in the yard. As mentioned previously, I tie up in a commercial fishing vessel moorage. I used to find the odd one washed up on beaches when I was a child. I havenít seen one in probably more than 50 years.

Me too, loads of lines, many 3/4 nylon, from the dumpster, at the marina where they crush old boats where I had my boat for years. And electric wire and a rule 1500 bilge pump. Fire extinguishers. And too many other things to recall now. Anything the marina owner who was doing the destroying of old hulls did not want, all went into the dumpster. The engines, tanks, etc..., were scrapped for metal content.

He tears-rips boats to pieces using a backhoe. Fiberglass hulls come apart quite easily.

You've found gold! Women will be lining up.

I guess I'm lucky? My marina (Legacy Harbour in Ft. Myers) has a table in front of the office where folks put stuff they don't want. During the season when the marina is full, it's amazing what turns up. No one puts out real trashed stuff and what does show up is usually gone pretty quick. It's a bit of a ritual to make a daily trip by the "free table" to see what's showed up.
