Default abandoned watercraft

Today I found a perfectly usable kayak floating in a well-known waterway. It has no registration numbers or hull number. After chasing it for an hour and risking my life to get it, I now have a question. It is covered by IL's abandoned watercraft rules, correct? My understanding is, finders keepers, as it isn't registered (and the town where I found it has no lost/stolen boat reports). It has cobwebs inside and apparently hasn't been used in quite some time, so it's not like it has an owner bouncing along the bottom somewhere.

Anybody wanna weigh in? Is it really mine to keep no matter how I finish in the game?
