I think you should take your own advice and do exactly that. The purpose of this site is not to mine information to build legal cases. Consider this particular case…CLOSED. As you were.

SO add to no GPS tag.....a subsequent owner that never reregistered the MMSI. So all of that information is useless. Am I missing something in saying that? I know a few boats around here that show...
