Re: Barnegat Light vessel lost

Yes it technically is up for grabs but if i claim salvage rights my company assumes ALL cost of salvage which I cannot do. By informing the marine police and coast guard it SHOULD force them into a legal mitigation and force them to have the vessel removed. Ottos, it has been leaking fuel since she first went down and sadly the agencies say its not a big deal. " only a few hundred gallons". Unbelievable, throw a cigarette or piece of trash on the ground and get a 55 dollar fine, let 350 gallons of fuel spill into the ocean and consider it not so bad..
