Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip. That started from this tropic port, aboard this big-ish ship.

Isn't maritime law basically finders keepers? If so, free boat!

My friend visited that year and left that book behind for the kids. I bought him the children's book "Hookers and blow save Christmas" as a gift in return.

Note that they are floating down the road (as opposed to down the river or stream or whatever).

I'd give that sailboat a home.

Anyone who knows sailboats have an idea what the draft on those boats would be? Cuz damn.

Owner has first salvage rights but if no one comes to get it finders keepers.

It looks to me like an entire finger of a dock in a marina broke off, and the boats were all still tied to something keeping them together.
Also, damn.

I'm guessing that sailboat is 40' to 42', as it's a center cockpit.  Many Gulf Coast boats use wing keels to increase the weight, while keeping the draft shallow.  A Catalina 42 (a relatively light boat) has a 6' draft.

It's Floriduh.

They are the same ones who call first responders to risk their lives to save these idiots, and they want to make sure they are close by when the FEMA and donations welfare start flowing

At least 12'? I have a 27' long sailboat and my keel is about 8' deep. That sailboat looks bigger.

According to the comments, that was a canal that had overflowed its banks.

Free, cheap or projects boats group on fb. My wife let me get another project car to keep me from buying a boat but it's not working.

You have think there must be many people who use hurricanes as an opportunities to cash in on for the insurances for boats they no longer want.

How does maritime salvage work on land?
 
2022-09-28 6:42:47 PM  

abhorrent1: Isn't maritime law basically finders keepers? If so, free boat!


In international waters when it has been purposefully abandoned: yes. In this case: no. Even if you could claim salvage rights you wouldn't want those boats. They're not going to a good place.

It's interesting that you make that observation.  When I was in Gulfport, FL in February I was window-shopping for a boat.  I was shocked at the poor condition of many of the boats, particularly those on buoys.

When you look at the images that you see over the next several days of boats, an indication of poor storm preparation includes:
* boats moored with only one anchor line
* standing canvas -- all of which should be pulled and stowed in a hurricane.  You don't even leave a furled jibsail because the wind will catch it and unfurl (unroll) it
* standing equipment on deck, such as biminis or cabin covers
* dinghies or other equipment on deck

Is insurance for boats like cats? Full coverage, minimum or Sue Me levels.

Buddy, your boat ran over my car.
"We'll, sue me. I'm writing an email.  Dear Ron Desantis.  Please make Boat Replacement top priority for hurricane aid. I sent you $50 for your campaign.  You basically owe me."

I'll consult my maritime lawyer, Chareth Cutestory.

Hint for Florida Farkers: don't be buying a used car anywhere near Naples, FL for the next year or two.

/Is Carfax down there taking pictures?
