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.

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.

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.

desperate times call for desperate measures, eh?
Louise and Larry were in a desperate situation. Like "what do we have to lose?"

I don't think they were stealing the boat. In all fairness, they got there first and It was a fair deal. It was the kind of opportunity they needed and they took it.
