While out with the masses yesterday, most f'ing buffoons, I found an 8' inflatable floating N/W of the Avalon Bank. No motor just the boat. Appeared to have been being towed and came disconnected from it's parent boat. No CF number or boat name and in really good shape. If anyone lost or knows someone who lost a dingy while traveling between Cat and the mainland, please PM me. Will need some obvious info, brand, serial #, and I will get it back to you ASAP. Lord knows them things aren't cheap.

First thing I did was check for, strike that, I found no cargo on board. Well, I am going run the VIN on it but since no CF's I will probably run into a dead end. BTW, anyone know about Maritime Law with regard to abandoned boats? I am going to give it my best shot at finding the owner, I'm not a douche bag, but I have been told I have a summer fresh scent.:D Funny thing though, I was looking for the exact size dinghy for my Avalon harbor runs with the wife.

Marine Salvage - If you find ANY boat adrift without a crew/owner you own it. Crazy but true.

Well, had the HIN tag on the transom run. Not stolen and never registered. Surprised because there is signs of outboard use. Read online in order for me to register, if I wanted to put a 350 OB on it, I need to place an ad in the paper for lost and found. May as well anyway, who knows. It is definitely not a cheap brand and I know I tried. Lesson to all, label all your equipment just in case someone wants to return it. Once in a blue moon some one will try. Ill let you know. Thanks for the input.
