Did you know that in many states if your boat sinks, you are responsible not only for removing the wreck, but for any oil spills or other environmental damage the boat may cause? In this case, it pays to know your local boat salvage yards because at least one of them may offer spill recovery and/or towing to help you in an emergency.
Many boat salvage yards also offer other services like insurance appraisals, along with the normal used boat parts and such. Hopefully, you'll never need emergency services from your local boat salvage yards, but it's good to know they're there when you need them the most!
