Who is responsible for cleaning this up?? The owner? The city?

If the vessel is insured they will probably hire a salvage company to remove or refloat it.

good luck on that. I suppose it depends a lot on the neighborhood but lots of sailboats with no ins.

The marina is, not much different than if a log floated up, its a road hazard, you can sue the owner but cleanup is on you

Well, not much damage to report on my property other than some damage to the sea wall by that sailboat.

Seriously though, who is my first call to get this thinf moving? CG? FWC? The city police marine unit?

I would start by calling the cops, they will know who to contact to deal with it. They will probably write up a report to which might be helpful for you if there's any legal issues down the road.

All things considered, I was really fortunate this is the only damage. Looks like the motor covers will be getting a make-over.

Time to call insurance company and local agencies and get some assessments.
