Metal Monday: Scrapping Boats

scrapping boatsLet’s go over boats and other types of water vehicles. There are many types of items from aquatic toys that are scrapable. From the engines of them to the entire boat itself, many of these items are very good for scrap metal. Items that you can find inside of boats that are scrapable: aluminum body row-boats, steel engines, brass propellers, stainless steel hardware, and lead keels. These items are all great for scrapping and can be found in many different boats and water vehicles.

Sometimes the entire vehicle itself, like a row boat, is also good for scrapping. One thing that you really have to look out for is fiberglass and plastic scrap. Many boats have fiberglass in them and when they do you have to be careful to cut it out ahead of time. There are also some yards that will not like how dirty certain items are and when they are really dirty or too long it is worth taking the time to clean them.

Certain larger boats will have large pieces of lead in them as a counter weight, those are great items to be able to cut out as well. You can also look for the heavy marine batteries that will be a great scrap item.
