Be a bit awkward getting that lot of with the boat at that angle, especially the jcb's they are a bit heavier than cars.

There is a good article on marine salvage here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_of_salvage
In this case there may not be an opportunity for salvage as the owners are present and there is no immediate danger that isn''t already being addressed.
