As HS has pointed out, if the boat can be traced to you—even if they don't find actual ownership papers—since you've been paying for the slip or dock storage fees for the boat, the authorities might find that enough to hold you responsible for salvage fees.

As for my many boats, ive really only got this one and my Pearson. Ive given away and given up on the others that i had or was trying to get. The Kittiwake 23 got smashed to bits by a larger boat.

I cant really leave the boat where it is since its right next to a mooring. I guess if it comes down to it, i can abandon it where it is and cut the rig down. I dont really have any money into it yet other than almost a year of keeping up with it.

Oh yea, forgot about the O'Day 27 we just pulled out the marsh.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
