Amend the bill, as and if amended, page 2, by striking lines 7 - 9 and inserting:
/ (D) The department must conduct investigations of any watercraft subject to the provisions of this section to determine the status of the watercraft as abandoned. The department must send written notice and make additional reasonable efforts to notify the last known owner, if any, of the status of the watercraft. If efforts to notify fail, then the department must post a notice on the watercraft advising that the watercraft is abandoned. If the owner claims the watercraft within forty-five days of the date the notice is posted, the watercraft is not considered abandoned.
(E) A watercraft identified by the department as abandoned for at least ninety days may be claimed by any person or entity as abandoned property." /
