Good thing it doesn't have a tuna tower or we'd be reading another "Gino's bad day" story..

Day 11. Only thing they did was remove the yellow boom and replaced it with a white absorbent boom. I can't believe they just let this beautiful boat sit here to rot. I'm sure there was salvageable stuff if it was raised within a day or 2. There is a beautiful fighting chair that i'm sure is crap. I believe all of the international rods and reels they always had in the rod holders are in the boat.
Can't figure this out. I'm thinking the guy didn't have insurance and he can't afford or doesn't want to pay to lift it. I think insurance would have acted by now.

I am surprised there is not a huge diesel spill associated with it. It should be pouring out of the vent tubes.

Perhaps he is fighting with the insurance company about the salvage and paying for it.
