Leaving boat in Trinidad ??

I have heard from a couple of recent Trinidad visitors that it is no longer safe to keep a boat there due to high theft rate. Can anyone here confirm or deny with recent experience? I am looking at Grenada as a safer place myself...comments/experiences there also appreciated.
Best...GB

Leaving boat in Trinidad ??

Rumor - and the occasional bad event - ebb & flow re: the southern Caribbean and Trinidad is no different. Peakes is probably the yard that''s most tightly administered and with extensive security, video cams, etc. but they chronically suffered from theft issues when we were there (Summer/Fall, 2002). OTOH their long-term storage yard is sealed off and considered to be very safe...which is why there''s a waiting list to get in! Powerboats tries to do a decent job but is pretty open; you might look for info on that one from others. Crewe''s Inn is a big operation, top dollar, and seemed secure but very pricey.

And then there''s the recent thefts reported about Grenada...see SSCA Bulletins.

Cruising in the Caribbean isn''t the safe activity it is in your home U.S. waters, but then neither are the rewards. Don''t be put off by it, just continue to do some diligent research, carry insurance, and have some good security practices & methods.
