Only licensed salvagers are allowed to collect those logs. And they only take the good stuff and leave the dregs to float about until those bits are either washed ashore or out to sea. The only problem with washed ashore is that spring tides or seasonal runoffs will refloat them again.
And a single screw vessel is better in this case because the propeller is better protected then that of a twin screwed vessel. I have curled the edges of a few propeller blades on that stuffed when I worked in that area. Propeller repair shops are busy up there.
