Do maritime salvage laws apply to my apartment?

I live in an apartment near the ocean, facing an interior courtyard. Are there any circumstances where if a Tornado picks up a boat from the ocean and drops it into the courtyard, I am allowed to salvage from it? What if it lands on my balcony, or breaks into smaller pieces? This is especially topical since I live in Los Angeles.
