I would like to point out the following from your reference.
The Department of the Navy retains custody of all its ship and aircraft wrecks unless specific, formal action is taken to dispose of them. The administrative act of striking an aircraft or ship from the active list does not constitute disposal. Even aircraft and ship wrecks that are
stricken from the active list remain the property of the United States until
such time affirmative action is taken to dispose of these properties, such
as sale, or other action in accordance with law.
You might do well to read what you post about.
