Any other person having or claiming a lien against any boat or vessel in pursuance of ORS 783.010 (Claims for which liens accorded) may, at any time after the sale upon execution and before payment over of any surplus in the hands of the sheriff, commence an action against such boat by name, as if the same had not been sold, and serve notice thereof upon the former master, owner, agent or consignee. While such action is pending, the sheriff shall not pay over any surplus that may be in the sheriffs hands to such master, owner, agent or consignee.
