Our marina is private and belongs to a sailing school. As for the boat, the information is you pulled is correct. It has been sitting here in a slip off to the side for over 7 years. I don't know what happened to the owner of it. We are trying to get ahold of him to take ownership of the vessel. It may turn out that he can't be located/deceased and the boat was lost along the way. We are now looking into salvage rights to the boat but from what I have found through the internet and talking with a game warden there are none for the state of Texas. The only course of action I see now is to report the boat abandoned. Would the parks and wildlife department then take ownership of the boat and either turn it over to us, the marina, to cover a lien we can file against it for storage or would they send it to auction? I need to call them and see what they have to say about it, but any thoughts you have are appreciated. Thanks, Chris
