here in the new orleans area most if not all katrina boats are gone, some one came in and disposed of 100's of boats in a mater of a few weeks. They crushed them. Some locals picked up alot of stainless hardware but most of that stuff is gone as far as i know. I was told most payouts for the boats were funded by fema,,, so their rules applied,,, nothing on the boat could be salvaged.... That is the talk on the street around here anyway.

Nola, apparently the "salvage" business is a lot like the trash hauling business. A closed game played by insiders who will not talk to outsiders, and will make outsiders very clearly unwelcome.

Call ten insurers, ask them who they sell totalled boats to. I doubt you'll get one useful answer from any of them.

I found them to be pretty welcoming. I was even offered a Columbia 30 at no cost.

mikieg is on a distinguished road
I grew up on the southern tip of lake michigan. Ifcyou leave your boat on the beach long, the sand will consume it. Sometimes you will be walking along and see a mast sticking up in the sand. About 5 or 6 feet down will be an abandoned boat. In 2004 i salvaged a hobbie 18 and a supercat 16. Losts of work for sure. But free none the less! I ended up selling them in 05.

The best thing i read so far was "buying a cheap project boat only difers the monetary investment"!
