Nothern Boat Jumble 17/3/13

Hello

I am thinking of going to the boat jumble in Middlewich on 17/3/13 and have never been before. Am I likely to get any of the following there and if so will it be new or used, am I likely to get a bargain?

1.) Approx 100L plastic fuel tank

2.) VHF aerial and cabling (max 300W)

3.) Nav lights (any will do)

4.) Full Teleflex NFB cable system (Wheel, dash mount, cable)

5.) Cheap VHF marine radio

6.) Chartplotters (Garmin 750s or 720s)

7.) Fuel lines & Power cables

Basically I need all of my rigging for my humber project!
Thanks

Generally I'm disappointed with boat jumbles, if you want a wander around looking at old boaty stuff, fine. They are usually dominated by river/canal boat types selling sh1t from the back of the shed. You won't find mainstream suppliers selling wide ranges of new gear, if you do it will be more expensive than you could buy off the 'net. If you buy secondhand tat ('cos that's what most of it is) Caveat Emptor. If the weather is nice, it can make for a pleasant afternoon out & that's about it.

I've done two boat jumbles and concur with PD.

If you can locate a used NAVMAN 7100 or 7200, then I can assist to remove the MMSI

MES have cheap 750s at 650 all in.

I think a couple of those old painted milk churns or buckets with the green & red flowers painted on by hand that they have on narrow boats or barges would look great on your rib Dave ; )


Must admit though some of the same old stuff gets passed on from jumble to jumble ,
There's one of those triangular Flexi fuel bladders that's been doing the rounds now for about 6 years even though the seller insists its only a couple of years old ,, bit like the same tin of condensed milk or bottle of wine at the village bring & buy sale that's been doing the rounds for the last 8 years : )
Think a lot also depends on the location as well if its located near a port perhaps with ship repair or refit facility's there always seems to be an abundance commercial lifejackets kicking about .

Northern Jumble

I usually go to the Middlewich and North Wales boat jumbles but have been disappointed the last few times. You do need to go early and queue to get in as the few genuine bargains that are there get snapped up in the first 10 minutes. The rest is the same old stuff from the same old faces and can usually be bought new on the internet/Ebay for the same money or even less in some cases.
The trader (David?Sounderparts?) who sells GPS's/VHF's/Plotters at these jumbles trades on ebay and sometimes has some good deals, he usually has a few VHF aerials.
Stainless fittings are usually priced OK and saves postage.
Pot luck mostly....
