Depends on state law for boats within state waters. For a commercial vessel (and for documented yachts) a lien can be filed with the Coast Guard, or can be sued upon in federal court under admiralty law, for "necessaries" (such as repairs) performed on a vessel. And you may not know about it til this happens.
