Re: Sunken sailboat in Oakland Estuary. What Happened?

The story I heard was that they were navigating around a container ship and its tug, and just cut it too close to the channel edge.

I too am curious how/why a wreck is allowed to stay in the estuary. I know it costs money to do so, but isn't there some kind of general maintenance fund for things like dredging that would cover removal of wrecks?

Thats not a rhetorical question.
