Sailboat Junk Yard

I've been looking on google to try and find boat junk yards. With all the natural disasters that have inflicted the North American continent surely there must be places where one can buy used parts for there particular sailboat. I have a 27 ft columbia and have been trying to find a galley folding table and some Columbia badges that were particular to my boat. No luck so far. Do such places exist and if so where do I find them. Thanks

From what I have seen in places like Salvage Direct, you have to be a licensed disassembler &/or a Dealer to even gain access to such things. Rather monopolistic, but what else is new.

I used to go to Don's Marine Salvage in Clearwater, FL, but I don't know if that will do you much good in Canada.

And that, my friend, is why Al Gore invented the internet. If you haven't done so already, check ebay, Craig's List and the other usual suspects. I have been amazed at the esoteric stuff available. Also, there is a Columbia Yachts website (Columbia Yacht Owners Association) that would be a good place to connect with others who may know the whereabouts of what you seek.

Also, check out this thread from Cruisers Forum that should give you some ideas:

Salvage Sailboat Parts

There is a place for used sailboat parts. They dispose of boats for people who are done with their boat and the dock fees. They have a website www dot sailboatjunkyard dot com.

Try massmarineparts.com
If you can find what you're looking for in the website you can email the owner and he'll look through the yard.

There's one in Long Beach (L.A.) that advertises on Craigslist - they claim to be a real boat scrapyard. Also, most areas where there is a lot of "yachting" have consignment shops of one sort or another. I've found the ones in junky old warehouses to be the best and the storefront ones to be the most expensive.
