I think that getting photographic or video proof of what is going on is your best recourse... You need to document what happens very thoroughly, and then once you have video or photographic proof....talk to the authorities and a lawyer... Even if you only catch him doing it once on video or camera, it won't be a big leap for the authorities and your lawyer to figure out all the times you boat has been vandalized were caused by the same person.

Jim is right, that the authorities should be interested...but without video or photographic proof... it is just your word against the owners.

BTW, a person would be better, but you can also get some small webcams that you can setup to trigger on a time lapse or motion.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
