[edit] Ship salvage and the law
Salvage law has as a basis that a salvor should be rewarded for risking his life and property to rescue the property of another from peril. A vessel is considered in peril if it is in danger or could become in danger. Examples of a vessel in peril are when it is aground or in danger of going aground.

Prior to a salvage attempt the salvor receives permission from the owner or the master to assist the vessel. If the vessel is abandoned no permission is needed.

Read the last sentence.

story is pretty crazy, as far as legal action, if the owner is that distraught over the incident, something tells me he wont want to bring up bad memories enough to get legally involved

Also if your willing to dive 80ft for a drive, more power to you i say its yours. you could pay me the amoun the drive cost new to dive 80ft unless there are bars of gold down there

if he brings it up, get some pics of the drive id like to see what it looks like after so long underwater. if it had fresh anodes on it id assume it might be fine depending on how long they last?

Careful there chief, laws on inland lakes are different than the open ocean. There could be more to it.

There was an Alpha SS for sale on here not too long ago. I wouldn't salvage the other one! IMO

I was wondering if the "new owner" would assume environmental liability from the abandoning owner.

I wouldn't want the karma.

It would be different if the hull/drive was in a yard somewhere. Something about a wreck still being submerged turns me off. Like it's a space that should be left alone.

Maybe if the guy wants the engine too.... he should be allowed to do this and then we can track all the troubles he has for years and years.
