Junk Boats

I live in a waterfront community. We have some moronic kids that somehow get possession of boats that are one step from the scrapyard. I assume the previous owners just want them gone and if some knucklehead will take them away they're OK with that.

The boats are registered (Maryland). Half the time they're under water. No use talking to the parents, they are generally as bad as the kids.

We've contacted DNR and get the standard bureaucratic run-around - fill out this form wait 30 days, fill out that form, etc, etc. We don't want to take possession of the boats through a title transfer, we want them gone.

Any ideas? Other than the obvious of cutting the line, pushing them into the river and calling the CG or DNR to report a hazard to navigation.
