So is the ship radioactive or not, if it is not I could use the 2000 gallons of diesel, that will run my truck for a long time.

So, does no one know who OWNS this ship?

They know the name (Ryou-Un Maru).

They know it is from Japan.

They'd rather destroy a perfectly good ship, along with 2,000 gallons of fuel than to allow the owner to claim it and bring it home??

Surely that boat is someone's source of income??(or maybe insurance paid out for the loss and he has a new one??)

Seems a waste of resources to just BLOW IT UP.
