here you go...
the salvage operation in N.O. was a policitical boondoggle from the get go. One of the Local D.A's relatives (who LLC'd only a week after katrina) was one of only 2-3 salvage operators permitted to do any work there. BoatUS wasn't pleased with the efforts of these salvagers and complained loudly to authorities, which of course fell on deaf ears.

I have many surveys that were for boats that were located at "x" location, clearly marked "property of "insert whoever, ins. company, owner, lein holder) only to have them gone "poof" less than 24 hours later. The "salvager" played Sgt. Schultz "I know noth-INK" to the hilt. It wasn't till the Guard showed up that things returned to some sembelence of normalcy.
