Re: Run-aground sailboat was stolen

Looks like the boat was an Oyster 82. At least they had good taste. That's what, a $3M boat?

I would bet that the people had some connection to the owner or crew, at least enough to believe they had a window of time to skedaddle. I think this was an attempt to get the boat south before anyone took notice. Sometimes you'll see joy rides, but no one takes an Oyster 82 out the Golden Gate at 1 a.m. for a quick joy ride. There must have been a larger scheme at play.
