dont know if this is the proper forum, looking for advise on marine salvage rights in Florida. Found a over-turned vessel on the ocean shoreline, boat has fla. boat registration numbers on it. no one was around. the city later came and removed boat. however, i was the first one on the scene, would I have salvage rights to the vessel, and if so, is it the owners burden to look for boat or does the salvager have to inform the owner of its vessels whereabouts.
