You're right to grind your teeth. There is no WAY that was not an inside job. Somebody at the marina, or somebody's brother or cousin, needed a few extra bottles of Mad Dog 20/20 for a party. The marina just didn't want to deal with it.

Which marina? Name names.

I lost fish finder (used for depth) winch handles, tools, small easy to carry items. Some lost outboards (guess mine was to old for them). Before anyone says they could have came in off the water, this was mid Feb in Mo, cove was frozen, except around the docks. Thing that angered me the most was the Marina's attitude, saying that the slip holders must have given out the combinations. Keep in mind, each dock has its own combination, as well as each storage lot, you only get the number to the lot/slip you use. Oh yeah, they also had to have the combination for the main gate, so make that 7 in all. That was 4 years ago, and it still grinds my teeth

"It ain't all buttons and charts, little albatross. You know what the first rule of sailing is? Love. You take a boat in to sea that you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of worlds. Love keeps her afloat when she oughtta founder... tells ya she's hurtin' 'fore she keens… makes her a home." Captain Malcom Reynolds, Paraphrased
