The Zachary Taylor II is also at Adams Marina. His junkyard leans more toward classic wooden hull cruisers and old houseboats, but not so many steel workboats. My dad was looking for some aluminum houseboat railings for his sternwheel houseboat retirement project. He looked at a few of Adams junk houseboats and offered to pay top dollar for railings, but we found that Adams won't part with any of their junk.

I discovered a similar thing when I tried to buy used spud pipe from Bennett's Marina (just down the road from Adams Marina). He wouldn't part with any of his junk either, even for cash. He said he "might need that spud pipe", even though he is in the process of closing his river terminal. Maybe I stopped by on a "bad day"..
