If you really want a fun project, I have a Cal 25'II sitting on jack stands in Chicago. She needs some work but not nearly as much as this boat, and, she was never sitting on the bottom.

Just curious if anyone knows, if this is indeed Starwind's boat, can he be liable to SV for the salvage? I know this may be a loaded question and may depend on where it took place, but salvage rights are something I have wondered about.

Thanks

Jason

From the FreeAdvice.com web site:

http://law.freeadvice.com/admiralty_..._and_treasure/

If I find an abandoned vessel, generally termed a ‘derelict’ in maritime terms, am I entitled to take possession of it and obtain ownership?

A "derelict" is a vessel that has been left by its crew that has no intention to return and no hope of recovery. However, even when a vessel is "abandoned" and left without intention to return, the vessel remains the property of its owner absent some affirmative act by the owner that clearly and convincingly establishes a positive intent to part with ownership.

Again, from FreeAdvice.com:

What rights does the salvor have who saves a vessel?

A salvor who has earned the right to a salvage award for the successful voluntary salvage to a vessel in peril has a preferred maritime lien on the vessel. However, a salvor must surrender possession of the vessel to the owner on demand if the owner posts reasonable security for the claim. If the owner declines to post sufficient security to pay salvage charges, the salvor must turn the vessel over to the U. S. Marshall and proceed to foreclose the maritime lien.

Starwind's first post on this forum is the one related to this boat. Was he coincidently just hanging around and saw his boat? Much ado about a boat worth somewhere between 0 and 1000 dollars in this condition. I think this is a bullsh$$ post from the start designed to stir stuff up.

The comment about back taxes is on a 1974 Hunter 25' that ive already done all the needed paperwork on with SCDNR. Its got $110 worth of back taxes that ive got to pay to get the title. Ive been messing with the hunter since August, long before the Columbia came around. That has nothing to do with the Columbia.

As for the Columbia, as soon as i see proof that its Starwinds boat we'll work a deal from there. I really didnt put too much effort into salvaging it. It only took about a weekend to raise it. The reason i rasied it was i like older boats, and it sucked to see it sunk there. Ive got 3 nephews that want to learn to sail, and the columiba looked as if it could be sailing again in a few months, whereas ive got a long haulout on the hunter to do since it has no rudder.

I dont want to get into some legal battle or a long war with someone over this boat. The way i see it, i could stand to gain a friend with the ower of the columbia.
