Re: Sunken sailboat in Oakland Estuary. What Happened?
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.
The yacht is the owner's responsibility while floating or otherwise. Hopefully he/she is insured, otherwise he/she's got a major problem.
