Starting a new thread using this thread as an example regarding Federal Marine Salvage Laws.
after reading the artical i was wondering if it was going to be salvaged!!! or does he have a time period to pay the fees to get his boat back?

The boat should be at our shop soon. I know my tech said he thinks motors are in bad shape.We took off the blowers. Motors only crank half turn. Must have ingested water on the limiters. Plus the intakes were filled with mud and sand. Once we get the boat back we can look into steering. Drives are only turned a little bit. Jibes with the drivers story.

There is a member on here,I will let him tell the story if he wants too...Any way he totaled his boat two years ago because of a hose failure.Very experienced operator and was not even going that fast.

Glad everyone is ok.

Wouldn't the boat be totaled and the insurance company just keep it? Unless you buy the boat back, how could it come back to your shop? Just asking.

I hope for full recoveries for everyone.



From this quote, I'm led to believe that the owner was not in control at the time, rather someone else was driving.
Or maybe they are just saying someone else was driving, or maybe not
