I've not evaluated this, but I often wonder if the cost of disposal would exceed the value of what I'd get off the boat.
There are a few yards around here that do salvage stuff and have a yard full of booms, railing, masts, and so forth from salvaged boats. I imagine the cost/value for an individual wouldn't be high, though.
