SVDistantStar,

I guess you could always put it back "exactly" where you found it.

It seems only fair ... whomever of svdistantstar or starwindsailor does the last post about this Columbia, the other guy assumes responsibility for trucking the shell that it is to a landfill.

Bulls$$t for sure.

As to salvage rights, I think the operative term from the free advice article is "in peril". Since the boat was in a salvage yard, if it is legally owned by starwind, I wouldn't think the distant star has a salvage claim.

Im just wondering why some people on here have made this more than it is? Yes I raised the boat. Yes I did that with the plans of keeping it. I also knew there was a chance that the owner was going to be found. No, I'm not going to be a jerk about it and try to hold his boat for ransom. A salvage fee would be a nice thing to be offered, but im going to leave that up to Starwind. I have no plans to do some long drawn out legal battle with anyone over this boat, nor do i have plans to put it back on the bottom. I raised the boat in my spare time mosty looking for something to do.

Well Done, Well Said, I too like older boats, they have character, pleasing lines, nice woodwork and just fun to sail, restore and enjoy, plus Good Ol' Boats are not in short supply, so there's never a problem finding another.

Better luck on the next one

Yea theres another little boat in the graveyard ive been considering, but never messed with it since it has no numbers on it. I posted pics of it on here to see if anyone knew what it is. The columbia got my intrest since it still had a mast and just seemed to be in better shape over all. But seeing as ive got a mast and most of the other bits to get it seaworthy ill be going after it now.

As for the hunter, since it has no rudder im going to leave it where it is untill i find a rudder.

Where is this graveyard and why are so many boat stranded there?
Are you in an area with lots of hurricanes?

You don't see many abandoned boats in my neck of the woods. I think if you abandon a boat, the authorities track you down and hold you responsible for all cost associated with having your boat removed.

Just curious.

I think that the owners of abandoned boats should be responsible for the costs associated with removing and disposing of them. This has been a huge problem in some of the more hurricane prone states, where boats that weren't insured get damaged and the owners don't want to spend the money to repair them or to haul them and dispose of them—so they just abandoned them.

The costs for cleaning up after an abandoned boat has sunk can be huge, especially if the fuel tanks weren't empty when it sank...

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.
