RE: Fixer -upper anybody?
Have to wonder...
What is the international/national rule of the sea for ownership in this case regarding the first to take control/tow of this multi thousand mile abandoned ship?* Too far off U.S. coast to claim ownership, if she is actually worth it?
Radioactivity potential from Japan nuclear meltdown?* Why did someone/company not regain control of vessel back when... were they just too busy, passed away?* Scrap junk to begin with, so they just let-her-go!!??* Looks a bit rusty for a year at drift.* Bilge pumps have electric power or auto activated pump motors?* Looks pretty buoyant... no leaks, not too many rain storms, no big seas encountered?* She is a strange puppy!*
Board that baby and fire her UP!!* I would try it... if it were legal to do so and just off the SF CA coast.* Would have Geiger counter with me too!* I know just the two old-salts with a good sized tug who would love to come with me.* What a blast wed have!
I hope somebody gets rights to her and turns a good dollar!
