(Newser) – Dave Henneberry had the bizarre luck of owning the boat that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev chose to hide inside during the Boston bomber manhunt. The boat, riddled with bullets and now a key piece of evidence, may be out of commission for good, but that doesn't mean Henneberry won't be hitting the water this summer. Two separate online sites have sprung up to buy the Watertown resident a new boat, reports the Daily News. This one at Crowdtilt.com had nearly $8,000 as of this afternoon, and a Facebook page soliciting donations had more than 600 likes, although no monetary numbers.

If he just quits smoking, his savings will easily pay for a new boat and he'll live a few more years to enjoy it.

Don't you just love the way the police (whether state, local or federal) can tear a house or car apart (with or without a warrant - with P.C.), shoot up, knock down or otherwise destroy the property of anyone, innocent or not, and just walk away - with NO responsibility to repair, replace or even put back together. On television (yeah I know it's TV & fiction) but do you ever see them put anything back in the drawers, back on the shelves or in the closet after a search? They find nothing then leave letting the presumed innocent people to clean up the mess. I have never been in the situation - do they really do that? Reminds me of a Police State / Gestapo where even the innocent are vandalized. I guess a person could file a claim against the responsible enity for damages, but good luck ever collecting.

Great to see although I thought the state would have had to replace it anyway. Imaging explaining all this to your insurance company. I once had the misfortune of having a dead body land on the trunk of my brand new company car while I was out clubbing one night many years ago. When I got to the car later, there was just a pool of blood behind it and a collapsed rear end and smashed rear window. Apparently as I learned from witnesses, some fool had stepped out to cross the very busy main road from behind my car without looking, then been whacked at 60 km per hour by a driver did not see him, the body, probably already toast, was then thrown high into the air after being hit and landed right between the back window and trunk. There was no note so my company's insurance company had no idea who to go looking for and threw a tizzy fit trying to get their heads around it. True story. And you can call me...................Mr Joshua
