Uhhh well, ifixit here does have those things. They can be purchased. Also it's very difficult to find good working logic boards.

buying a new phone on eBay that is not water damaged will likely be cheaper

Right--the thing with logic board replacement is that the phone really IS the logic board. It is usually not cheaper to replace the logic board then to just buy a new phone, unlike a computer where the logic board is just one part.
