    Amends GS 153A-132 to allow Dare County to, by ordinance, prohibit the abandonment of vessels in navigable waters within the county's ordinance-making jurisdiction. Applies the statute to abandoned vessels (which are defined in the statute) in the same manner as it applies to abandoned or junked motor vehicles except that the storage requirements of GS 153A-132(c) do not apply to an abandoned vessel that (1) is partially dismantled or wrecked, (2) cannot be self-propelled or moved in the manner in which it was originally intended to move, or (3) is more than five years old and appears to be worth less than $500. Provides that shipwrecks, vessels, cargoes, tackle, and other underwater archeological remains that have been in place for more than 10 years are not considered abandoned vessels and may not be removed under the statute without approval of the Department of Cultural Resources.
