Before you go investing in building a wheel, make sure you can find a place to put it. Fishwheel sites are at a premium and extremely hard to just "find." You pretty much have to have excellent connections to get a share, or inherit it.
Building a Fish Wheel is Allot of work From Experience and takes time and money but is worth it in the long run, In saying that I need some advice we have a wheel that was runned over by Crowley (Barge Company) and they dont want to take care of it What can or should I do?

I'm not sure but if you had a day shape of 2 cones apex to apex (2 funnels taped together) that signifies fishing gear in the water and a power boat hits it, they are responsible. If the vessel was towing something and restricted in its ability to maneuver the fishermen has to move, I'm not sure about fixed or anchored gear though, maybe a setnetter can shed some light
