Right off the Snook Inn. I was down last year and remember that boat. I hope the owners get the bill for removal.

The State has been trying that for over two years now....taxpayers footing this bill.

That's just wrong. They need to pay for that. Maybe if the salvage crew dumped whats left of in on the owners driveway they might see things diffrently. I would think they got an insurance check for it already, they should make that a condition of the settlement, no cash unless it is removed

The whole thing is stupid. For the first couple of months I could have floated it with two 3" pumps and a good moon tide. Instead of just getting it up and out our local brain trust kept going after the owner. Now the POS is FULL of sand and it's gonna take a excavator with a barge and claw to remove it in pieces. Had anyone showed some initiative the hulk would have been gone two years ago and lawyers pursuing a small claim of a couple K. Because of inaction the whole thing will cost tens of thousands and never be resolved.

Way to go Marco. Dumb asses.

LOL.

Better watch what you say about the Marco Mob...your gonna find a Geritol bottle thrown through your front window with a nasty note tied to it.

The get away car would be a Buick, Lincoln or Cadillac speeding away at 12 mph.

It's all fun and games until you gotta drive here. It's like a Zombie movie...only the zombies aren't chasing you, they are just in your way.

Oh I know!! Or they just pull out in front of you! I almost rolled my Bronco right in front of Fiddlers Creek because some guy who was about 110 years old pulled right in front of me on 951.
