Re: Accused sailboat thief hung around marina for days before stealing boat

If you permanently secure a boat, you may make it impossible for the harbor master or others to render assistance in an emergency without you there. Eg... taking on water, collision that holes the topsides.

If you can center and lock the rudder, that would still allow a tow, but should dissuade a joy rider.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
