Police resorted to Facebook to find the owner.   (Facebook)

(Newser) – Don't you hate it when you dock your six-figure boat in a harbor and then forget all about it for two years? This somehow happened to a well-to-do Norwegian man who moored his $108,000 boat in a Swedish harbor, reports the BBC. Two years later, a Facebook and media campaign launched by police to find the owner finally jogged his memory. He had a vague recollection of selling the boat, but, no, it's still his. "You have to be very wealthy to be able to forget about a boat in this price range," says a Swedish police official quoted in the Daily Mirror. The owner has to pay up two years' worth of docking fees, but authorities suspect it won't be a problem.

Must to be nice to be this rich. The only thing I have that floats is the rubber ducky for the bathtub.
