RIBase
What's the law on salvage now? (EG if I find a jetski half a mile out do I have to give it back?)

coming up Roses!

Kept finding lovely fresh flowers which my kids loved collecting.
They have a lot of weddings on the beach here and we thought they were the bouquets.
Wasn't until we "followed a trail" one day and found it was from funeral wreaths cast on the water
Needless to say we have never done that again

Lots of law to peruse on this one! e.g. http://www.admiraltylawguide.com/con...lvage1989.html

Have fun!

Paul salvaged a runaway RIB for a Biboa member on a Weymouth Cruise but operated the good-natured principle of looking out for someone else at sea and gave him back the helm (once we'd fished him & crew out of the sea) with a smile.

For time-driven commercial operators who make their money at sea however stopping work to sort someone else out is probably a different matter.

A mostly dis-assembled piano.

It was part of a piano smashing contest ( ) on the beach at low tide. They forgot to clear the debris up from the beach before the tide came in, so it floated off down the channel, all floating bits of wood held together by a bunch of piano wires......luckily the loose bits of wood were floating all round the main wreckage......
