I am a lawyer in California who knows very little about maritime law. I have a client who, while on navigable waters, had his boat hit by an under water pipe. I know the Statute of Limitations for personal injuries is 3 years, but what is it for property damage ? I have searched a large number of internet sites but none of them discuss this.

That's a good trick, getting a pipe to hit your boat. The answer to your question, however, is that the general law of premises liability would apply.
