Not stealing. Salvage is a legitimate business on the coasts around the world. Whether it's logs that have broken free of booms or abandoned ships. This was Larry and Louise's career. Well, Louise's family. Larry took over from her dad as he was the best man for the job. I was rooting for them and very happy they got the salvage and managed to keep it. Can't wait to find out what happens next!!

Larry and Louise were so greedy and desperate and thus why they tried to steal the sheep despite the fact that they were zealous entrepreneurs.
Look where you want to go in life, not at where you don’t want to go.

The laws concerning salvage say it isn't stealing. Maybe it feels unethical, but even when we're children we learn the old saying 'Finders keepers- losers weepers"... The risk involved outweighs the ethics problem, and the fact that it's set up this way adds incentive for getting salvage work done.

I felt they shouldn’t have tried to get ship too dangerous ain’t worth it in long run.

- Latest Review: Four Funny Potatoes! by Len Foley
It wasn't really stealing, it was business. Through this book, I learned that such a business exists. It was a fair game. The sad part was Larry died and Louise only realized in the end how much he loved her.
Life is a journey. Do not take for granted the people you are with for tomorrow they may turn to a different road.
