Well, if Indiana is anything like California, the authorities have very little power when it comes to holding boat owners responsible for the disposal of derelict or abandoned boats. Here in the Sacramento River Delta, it is a huge problem. Over 1000 miles of waterways and hundreds of abandoned boats tucked away amongst the reeds. What is beginning to happen more and more is that the local law enforcement agencies will try to track down the owner if possible. Usually there is no response or "I sold that boat a year ago, don't remember the guy's name" kind of thing. Through a state-funded grant, they can then contract to have the boat removed and destroyed. But it is a slow process and there are many, many derelict boats to be removed and more appearing all the time.

We have auction down here in DP all the time with abandoned boats, it's amazing what people will do with their boats.

Hell, in San Diego some marina & Mooring field managers have been known to set adrift the boats of dead beat owners, others have been sunk, they leave it up to the officials to deal with it.

We have finally cleared things up, A BIG thanks to some really radical people.

Now the story, The boat was on a mooring line here in Chas. SC. The boat somehow managed to leave the moor and end up on the bank, as the picture indicates. This happens relatively often in this area. The bank that it landed on is home to many other wrecks, some having been there for over 10 years.
When the boats hit the bank, they leave the jurisdiction of the coast guard, and enter the jurisdiction of SCDNR. According to SCDNR law if a boat is registered, no matter where it is, (shoal or bottom) or how long its been there, no person other than the registered owner is allowed to board the boat without permission.
Unfortunately, when a fully rigged boat washes up, looking "abandoned" pirates have there way, stripping the boats for all they are worth. This is exactly what happened here. In a matter of three days the boat went from fully rigged, to the bare hull it is now. The spinnaker, boom, winches, hardware and several sets of sails all gone.
I have filed a stolen property report with SCDNR, local police and the Coast guard, all who have told me in a round about way, I will probably never see anything again. Without insurance I am left with the hull and a "good luck" from officials.
If anyone has info. please share..
