Some states have enacted laws about abandoned vessels when the USCG/ACOE kinda said "not us anymore" in many situations...not sure about where you live.

Once declared abandoned...my old assistance towing boss/owner got a ggrant to do the Cape May, NJ harbor cleanup of abandoned vessels. I think they did 5-6 boats that were at least partially sunk.

Contact local environmental groups about potential pollution issues and they can often get the ball rolling because of substantial background funding...
