I wonder why the CG doesnt get involved? Afterall doesnt a boat leave a slick behind after it bottoms out? Seems to me to be an environmental issue.

Or does the CG consider this to be a local issue?

He is full of *!#&. My wife and I run along the seawall where he was anchored. I had made a comment to my wife just a few days earlier about the condition of the vessel. As you stated, it was covered with rust. He was anchored and didn't "hit" anything, except possibly something he had just rolled.

Scallywag

Where do you keep Scallywag? We are in the Municipal Marina.

Roger,
I am around the 206 Bridge. The development is called Treasure Beach. Very thin water at high tide. I wait until a full moon before I even attempt the transit the canals to the intracoastal. I draw 4.5 feet and am very careful when leaving. My wife me Captain Run-A-Muck. I keep the Scallywag at the Municipal Mariana for a couple of months four years ago but now the rates are just too high especially with the construction of the new and improved(?) Bridge of Lions. Sorry it took me so long to reply. This has been a busy work week.

John

It does seem logical that boats should be treated like cars in this sense. Part of every car registration fee every year goes to the costs of towing away the "abandoned" ones, there's no reason why any state should ignore abandoned boats. Whether they choose to fund that from registration fees or general funds is the only real question. Or, they could do what NJ does.

If your boat goes down in navgiable waters and is declared a hazard to navigation, the NJ State Police and/or the USCG will contact the last known owner and tell them very simply, "Either you move it, NOW, or we'll move it and send you the bill."

If locals are feeling oppressed by abandoned boats, their issue is NOT against BOATERS, it is against their own lazy-ass state government and if they can't get the state to take action, they need to take it themselves. If they can't figure out how to do that...ride the jackasses out of town on a split rail and get someone in who knows how to send out a bill and then follow up collecting it.

Ain't so hard, especially if you're a government. "Here's your bill, you can spend one day in jail for every $25 if you don't want to pay."

Whatever happened to the law of salvage and the law of finds? If it is anchored, and it is not yours, don't mess with it. If it is aground, or sunk, and it is abandoned, have at it. If it is in peril, save it, and you are legally entitled to compensation. People have trouble leaving alone things that are not theirs, including governments.

How about a crew of people go aboard a derelict, clean it out and then tow it out to deep water and turn it into a man made reef? If the owner can't be bothered to deal with it, it may take months before he notices its gone.

Can anyone give an update on the plans for the mooring field in St. Augustine? I am moving up there in a few weeks and am looking to use the field once completed for my boat.
