This program has been pretty successful and both removing problem boats but also in preventing boats from becoming problems. There are still more abandoned vessels than the program can get to, but it certainly helps.
We witnessed one of the boats being hauled to shore, crushed, and put into dumpsters. Very impressive. Nothing like that in FL. The key was these vessels all were still afloat and actually sitting at the marina waiting.

The key is identifying and assisting or taking action with "at risk" vessels, so you're not dealing with sunken vessels.
