I saw something interesting on Reddit the other day. Apparently when a ship is abandoned in international waters, it becomes a finders keepers scenario. Be interesting to see if they can save it!

If they do salvage the ship they won’t be able to resell them as “non smokers” cars Rolling with laughter

I thought the corrosion warranty was voided if the car went out in the rain ? Whistle

But surely the rust warranty would be in full force... ie we warrant that the car WILL be rusty inside five years Laughing

Funny enough I wondered that regarding wrecks and there cargo , didn’t realise there were so many terminologies Jetsam, flotsam, lagan and derelict

See there’s a reference regarding Duchy of Cornwall and think Cornwall a few hundred years ago were one of the top places where if anything came on shore the locals would Nick all of it before the red coats got wind of it


Jetsam describes goods cast overboard to lighten a vessel in danger of sinking. The vessel may still perish.

Flotsam describes goods lost from a ship which has sunk or otherwise perished. Goods are recoverable because they remain afloat.

Lagan describes goods cast overboard from a ship which afterwards perishes. The goods are buoyed so they can be recovered.

Derelict describes property, whether vessel or cargo, which has been abandoned and deserted at sea by those who were in charge of it without any hope of recovering it.

If a boat comes off its moorings, it isn’t generally classified as a wreck for the purposes of the Merchant Shipping Act 1995, as it hasn’t been abandoned without hope of recovery.

Also, buoys such as data buoys and mooring buoys aren’t classed as wreck. However, buoys which form part of fishing equipment may be classed as wreck when adrift.


https://www.gov.uk/guidance/wreck-and-salvage-law

Unclaimed wreck
If wreck from UK waters remains unclaimed at the end of one year, it becomes the property of the Crown or grantee of the Crown such as the Duchy of Cornwall.

If you believe you are entitled to unclaimed wreck, you must provide evidence of entitlement to the satisfaction of the Receiver.

If wreck from UK territorial waters is unclaimed at the end of one year, the Receiver will dispose of the find on behalf of the Crown. If wreck from outside UK territorial waters is unclaimed at the end of one year, the Crown makes no claim.

Well I never knew that

West Wales was a key area for smuggling. Far from the main trade routes, west Wales had large numbers of secluded beaches and small coves suitable for smuggling. Goods were smuggled into west Wales from the Isle of Man and Ireland.
