Take the boat to Fish & Game and file for an abandoned title. They will do the legwork and let you know which direction to go in next, or if you will be able to take possession eventually. If you can't physically get the boat down there, write down the VIN # and take photos with you.
The trailer would be your motor vehicle department. You can file for an abandoned title there.
If you have the owner's name, send a letter by certified mail to let them know you are storing it and for how long, plus the daily rate you are charging to store. The last mailing address is the address of the property.
If there is a forwarding order, it will be forwarded to the owners. If it comes back to you, take that with you to Fish & Game and the MVD to prove you did what you could to find the owner.
