I would have thought it'd be considered abandoned and free for the taking. Funny and interesting none the less.

there is no such thing as an abandoned boat in south carolina, no matter how long the boat is abandoned. you have to file a abandoned vessel form from DNR, but the process takes up to a year, and you have no rights to the vessel in the mean time.

My Fellow Boaters!

A charter sailing vessel with load of politicians was half way to the Bahamas when a freak storm hit the boat. Several of the passengers were thrown overboard and drowned. After retrieval of the bodies and with the knowledge that they may not be rescued for some time, if ever, the deceased were buried at sea. Three days later, the local Coast Guard found the damaged craft. Upon boarding, the Coast Guard Captain asked, "Is everyone okay?" The Captain of the damaged vessel explained that he had a few passengers fall over board. The Coast Guard Captain asked, "Are they all dead?" The Sailing boat captain replied, "Well, some of them said they weren't, but you know how those politicians lie."



the cost of raising a sailboat $ PRICELESS

Other than the problem of getting the proper paperwork for the boat... there are probably going to be more than your fair share of issues with the boat itself. Chances are very likely that the boat was neglected, if it was allowed to sink in the first place...and it will have to have all the electrical system and electronics replaced to start with. Also, the deck and hull may have other issues, and the rigging may be very questionable—depending on how long it was submerged.

Once you take possession of the boat, it could be come a very expensive project. The cost of repairing the boat and replacing the equipment ruined may very well be far more expensive than getting a similar boat that is in usable condition.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
