Re: Run-aground sailboat was stolen
So where was the paid crew?
Keeping the vessel "safe" is their job, and a boat like this certainly had at least 2 if not more full time crew aboard.
A Charter Crew does not necessarily live on the boat. They more often come aboard when there's a charter.
Judging from the photographs, the thieves look like the typical doped up street people one very often sees in Sausalito (and for that matter the "Hashberry" in the City and lower Telegraph Avenue in Bezerkely), commonly the remaining refugees from the "summer of Love" that turned on, tuned out, and never got the Memo that the times they were a change'n.
Hopefully the yacht can be saved...
