Re: Thugs - bl@@dy thugs !
Bene - that is such a great story. Really made me happy !!
Heard of stories of gangs of Eastern Europeans that allegedly have been targeting marinas. When I went to some of the nearby marinas last weekend one guy there told me that he was quite sure that it will have been some foreigners again who took the engines this time. Kept my mouth shut. I am the hardworking taxpaying foreigner here, the guy who advertised the engine and was arrested is Essex through and through.
The idea with the cowling replacement cover is great. Something to look into. They are for sale here at the local marine police unit.
Looking into trackers now and also alarm systems for boats.
I will fight back !
Yet my heart hammers now, yearning anew
wanting the steep salt-water road
longing with lust to roam rough seas, alone
to seek out some far foreign shore
