North American Marine Salvage Sources

If you have a classic vessel, you need a source for used marine supplies. We are breaking our rules here in that we list more than ten - in fact we listed every source we could find. The reason is that if you are looking for a specific part for an older boat, it is prudent to try as many sources as possible. So here they are. Some may be more antiques oriented, others may be more sail or engine oriented, but all have treasures just waiting to be discovered.

If you live in California, try the swap meets listed here.
