Default Anyone Interested in a Free Reef Boat?

I have a boat that has already been converted half way into a reef. Rebar has been attached and is ready to sink. Gutted and all. Would anyone be interested in getting it off my hands? I need the trailer under it for another boat project. Thanks. And if this is "Against the law" to talk about making reefs, please go easy as i did not know. Thanks.

It's not against the law to talk about making reefs.....However, the materials that are legal and are very sticked.

Boats, IE: Fiberglass is not on that list and is therefore illegal.

The article states:
charter fishing/diving captains have been building “private” or “personal” artificial reefs for at least forty years. (The term “private” does not confer exclusive usage rights to an artificial reef; once the reef is built, anyone that finds it may utilize it.

I love that part. I wish these smart &*^% who think they own the ocean & reefs would read this.

What is it? I am not looking to sink it but I could use something I can tow with my boat as a barge to carry my reefs out.

Not intending to derail this thread, but I have a large boat hull suitable for hauling reefs (with some work). 26' long, 9 1/2 feet wide. Contact me if interested. [email protected] Sea-r-cy
