Does anyone know if there is some sort of boat junk yard in the DFW area?

Due to the cost of land and the lack of value of old boats, I don't know of one. The cost of inventoring and storing those parts just isn't worth it.

I just bought a 1990 Tracker Marine Nitro. I need many small pieces and parts. I also want to know how to put everything back together and how the boat was originally configured.

I appreciate it, but mine is fiberglass. I am assuming your boat is the one in your photo. I might have the name of the boat wrong. On the title it says its a Bass Tracker, but on the side of the boat it says Nitro. All over the engine and trolling motor it says "Tracker", hence my confusion.

I've always seen Fore & Aft south of downtown Ft Worth. Didn't know if it was a Boat Salvage Yard, or just a really dirty boat repair place.

I have gone by and called many diffrent times and know one is ever there.

Now they got the yard of month stacking yard art.

Hey I just thought of something, "Yard Boat Art" for ALL your outdoor design guys that were lotion and cant grip a tackle box.

Was considering looking for a ladder for my newer ranger. I got the e-ladder when I got the boat but since I'm putting on a power pole on that side I'll need a new ladder. They're listed new online for around$250. Just figured maybe a wrecked boat you could pull one off of for cheaper.
