Disputed title to unclaimed wreck
466. (1) Where any dispute arises between any person who has delivered a statement under section 464, and the Receiver of Wreck respecting title to wreck found in any place, or where more persons than one claim title to that wreck and a dispute arises between them as to that title, that dispute may be referred and determined in the same manner as if it were a dispute as to salvage to be determined summarily under this part.
(2) If any party to the dispute is unwilling to have the same so referred or, where it is so referred, is dissatisfied with the decision, he may, within three months after the expiration of six months from the time when the wreck has come into the Receiver's hands or from the date of the decisions, as the case may be, take proceedings in any Court having jurisdiction in the matter for establishing his title.
