MooseBayou: Walker: AverageAmericanGuy: Can I keep it?Please?Finders keepers.You might be surprised what you can finder/keeper on the high seas. Admiralty Laws, rights of salvage, and all that. You can't keep any of the people, though.Run out there in your dinghy, and put a tow rope on the bow. It's yours.

Tom_Slick: MooseBayou: Run out there in your dinghy, and put a tow rope on the bow. It's yours.Not quite, if you had a Tug boat and were able to free the vessel you then have right to bill the owners for the retrieval, if they then don't pay you get to keep the ship. IIRC the going rate for freeing a grounded vessel is between $100-$200 a foot, so it can be a sizable payday.
MooseBayou: My guess is that they must have lost main engine power. No prudent mariner just allows his anchor to be dragged.
