Abandoned boats could get sheriffs' hook under South Carolina Statehouse bill
from Post and Courier
Hundreds of the eyesores and navigation hazards can be found along South Carolina's waterways after recent storms or from outright owner negligence. The boats have one thing in common: Nobody has the money or wherewithal to get them out. That is, oddly enough, why state Rep. Peter McCoy, R-Charleston, has introduced a bill to give sheriff departments and local governments the authority to remove and destroy the boats — not because they have the money, but because he wants to get it for them.
