Re: Sailboat perishes off Hatteras, USCG rescues crew

Allio,

There are plenty of private and commercial enterprises that receive assistance from 1st responders: Fire Fighters, EMT's, Police, etc. without receiving an invoice for their services. The Coast Guard has a long history of assisting mariners ( 1830's). I suppose you could consider state, local or federal taxes as the bill, if you wanted.

I'm just guessing that an insurance claim has been filed and it's now a salvage job. I don't know all the ins and outs of that. I suppose the ins. could hire a salver to retrieve the vessel if they chose. I believe if someone gets their 1st, it's their claim.
