... unfortunately, scrap metal buyers tend to be as dishonest as they come, and not at all likely to report stolen material (they make money on the recycling regardless of where the customer got it). I've heard that around here, it's not at all uncommon for them to gladly hand over cash for shiny, never-used manhole covers, and the ONLY way a person could get their hands on new manhole covers is to steal them from construction sites.
It's worth a try to check in with metal recyclers, but I wouldn't get my hopes up that they do anything if the boat turns up.
