If your name was on the title along with your father, then the entire boat may belong to you by right of survivorship. This has to be checked out under the SC joint ownership statutes, and that can be time consuming research. At the very least, one half of the boat belonged to you and you should be entitled to at one-half of the proceeds. That would be a natural compromise position. We are not licensed to practice law in SC, so we cannot contact your brother on your behalf. I hope that this information is helpful and that you will rate it a as a 3, 4 or 5.
