Well guys got enough money to buy an island (like Sir Richard Branson) or live in his watervillage or buy a powerboat company to make only tenderboats to himself if he wants to.
Heīs determined to get the boat out of there and heīll do it plus rebuild it for as much as the whole boat is worth.
Itīs good to be Rich.

Where is the boat located in relation to Key West? I'm thinking there might be a current image on Google Earth that you could view from satellite.

Don't have the resolution close enough in that area so I'm out of luck on that idea.

Still, a shame to see that thing stranded like that.
