(1) The Abandoned Boat Removal and Cleanup Subaccount is established within the Boating Safety, Law Enforcement and Facility Account. The subaccount shall consist of moneys deposited into the subaccount by the State Marine Board from fees collected pursuant to ORS 830.790 (Certificate or registration fees) and 830.850 (Identifying number plate required on floating homes and boathouses). The moneys in the subaccount are continuously appropriated to the board for the purposes specified in this section.

(2) The board may not deposit more than $150,000 per biennium into the subaccount and may not retain more than $150,000 in the subaccount at any time. After the board has deposited $150,000 into the subaccount under this subsection or any time there is more than $150,000 in the subaccount, any remaining moneys from fees collected pursuant to ORS 830.790 (Certificate or registration fees) and 830.850 (Identifying number plate required on floating homes and boathouses) shall be deposited in the Boating Safety, Law Enforcement and Facility Account created under ORS 830.140 (Boating Safety, Law Enforcement and Facility Account).

(3) If the board or a removing authority has been unsuccessful in collecting reimbursement for removal from the water and cleanup expenses from an owner of an abandoned boat, floating home or boathouse that imposes an environmental threat or safety hazard to navigation, or the owner’s insurance, the board may use the moneys in the subaccount for:

(a) Paying the expenses of the board in implementing ORS 830.907 (Definitions for ORS 830.907 to 830.927) to 830.927 (Disposal of unclaimed boat, floating home or boathouse), limited to the expenses associated with the removal and cleanup of an abandoned boat of less than 200 gross tons, an abandoned floating home or an abandoned boathouse; or
