I saw a youtube video of a container ship dumping either on purpose or by accident quite a few containers that had cars in them(seas were beyond rough).

Wonder what would happen if you tried to salvage that assuming it didn't sink(probably would).

The mind wanders.

Salvage means a claim, not necessarily and rarely ownership outright.

Plenty of salvage info to read on the net for wandering minds....
