Default Air Conditioning and Freon 12

I am moving from my house and have a pretty full 30 pound container of Freon 12. Is this used in the boat air conditioning systems?
I used to fill my Corvette each year. its been sitting for a few years and I am not sure what to do with it.

Thanks
Shawn

I suggest you check your local and state rgs. R12 is illegal in many places now. Venting it, buying it, selling it etc.

R12 is illegal period. Any R12 on the market today is shipped in from outside the country....if you can find it.

Hide that sucker it's worth a small fortune!

you have to have a lic. to buy R12 [ at a auto parts store], unlike R22 or 134A which anyone can buy

I am licensed to buy R12. I do automotive R12 systems frequently. We always evacuate (and identify) the system before servicing.

And I'll pay shipping too!

R12 Freon was mainly used in older vehicles and a few marine ac applications. Todays's are R22 and R134a. R12 is an extremely rare commodity.

Not trying to burst any bubbles here but take a look at this:
