That boat reminds me of a boat that used to be here in Morro Bay. The crazy guy that lived on it had a lot of problems with the CIA and aliens following him around. On his good days he cleaned windows around town, on his bad days he yelled a lot. He did his cooking in the cockpit. He would collect old oil-based paint to cook on. He would remove the lid, throw a match in the can, and cook on the flames. I wondered if that was the cause of or a symptom of his problems.
I learned something important from him. He told me that no matter how hungry you are and how long it's been since you've eaten, you can't eat a seagull.
Good to know.

Even if you concede that it's littering, you expect a police investigation? The problem was properly handled by the proper authority.

Hmmm...No owner of record, adrift.

I think I'd report it as a "hazard to navigation" and remind the local USCG station, CC to their District Command, that they are supposed to remove hazards to navigation. And that a failure to do so, resulting in damages, could be held as gross negligence and dereliction of duty. NOBODY in uniform wants to think about having those charges levies against them.

CCing that to your Congressional reps might also create a little incentive, as they vote on the USCG budget and a phone call from DC saying "WTF are you people doing down there?" can often motivate them. For the pols, the letter is an easy way to get votes so they're usually happy to do it.

Yes, Hazard to Navigation

I sail a Catalina 27 from West River in Maryland. In the anchorage area near my slip there was an orange cat 27 anchored. I never saw anyone on it or never saw it sailing. Then one weekend I noticed it had moved its anchor spot. I didn't think much of it at the time. Then a few weeks later I was out and it was not very close to where I keep my boat. It was near the shoal to the entrance to the slip area. No big deal... I s=went out and when i returned i asked a neighbor (this is a private dock area) and he told me it wasn't anchored, it was aground. He told me the DNR (Dept of Natural Resources) had been notified. Later that weekend, I noticed it was gone! It seems the DNR located the owner and notified him that he had to move the boat. He did not. So they towed it to a safe sate facility. He would be charged.

Joe McCary,
Sailing on The Central Chesapeake Bay, West River, MD on my Catalina 27, Aelous II with my wife and friends.
