Re: Accused sailboat thief hung around marina for days before stealing boat
Is there anyone that has been on the water solo since age 10 tell me that you haven't "forgotten" to tie up...
Or it could be the drinking...cant quite remember
I never forgot to tie up, but last year I forgot to untie one line before heading out. It was a redundant snubber line meant to prevent my boat from rubbing on the fenders, so it was intentionally undersized (just clothesline) so it would break in a storm instead of ripping the cleat off the boat. It broke just as designed.
