Used Brass/Bronze Parts?

I just finished the sad job of dismantling my '67 wood Trojan 42. The job produced a bunch of brass/bronze hardware like carriage bolts/nuts of various lengths, plumbing brass (1/2" connectors, Ts, elbows, etc) and Groco thru-hulls and seacocks of various sizes. Since I am planning on cruising the Caribbean next year, I was wondering if it would be worth while taking this stuff with me to sell/trade to other boaters in need of such things.

I guess the real question is how much need for hardware of this nature is actually still in use?
Maybe this time the light at the end of the tunnel won't be an oncoming train!
