Last Friday we dropped by our boat before heading out of town, noticed undergarments in the cockpit! Huh? Then found bootmarks on the floor and where someone barfed over the side. Yuck. After reporting it to the harbormaster we went away, a bit shaken about the audacity of some people (the boat is tied stern to). When we got back Monday we saw the guard and he was embaressed because he saw them and assumed it was us, since the couple "didn't stop" when he walked up so he eased away. He knows well now what we look like and hopefully it won't happen again, but every couple who comes strolling down the dock gets an eye from us, evaluating the females assets, trying to determine if she left her "stuff" on our boat.

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Well, $300,000 worth of boat should get any DA's attention. Nobody's exempt from being held accountable for their actions. My feeling is that this woman probably has developed a bit of dementia and will get off lighty. At the very least, she must pay for the damage and for the head/heartache she caused.

You guys need to chill, she's NOT a thief. I told her that it was my boat, and my middle name is Mike.
(oops, no wait, this is a different boat, and a different story altogether, sorry)

From the facts presented, there is still room for reasonable doubt that she had criminal intent. The damage is real. Collect every honest cent of restitution, but leave room in your thoughts that it was an honest mistake and they might not prosecute it as felony grand theft.

Nah, she mistakenly thought it was her $300,000 boat. She was just in the wrong marina, but it looked just like her's. And, it was a brief moment of dementia that she forgot how to sail and ran it into the rocks. Yeah, that's reasonable doubt and she really had no criminal intent. She should just get a real stern talking-to and turned loose. I'm sure she will be a model citizen after that.

Let's all just be happy we have boats other people would like to use or steal. We could all be in a much worse situation. I think theft is going to become a very big issue not only for your boat, but house, car and other items. With high unemployment and not such a great future for many, they have no options "they" can see. Where I moor my boat, their is a large homeless population, I have not been hit, but many other boats get items stolen. I hope I do not get hit, but if I do, I will try to accept it as this is life, and deal with the repair and replacement of items stolen. I look at myself, not only do I have a house to live in, but a boat that can be my second home. The homeless (weather fault of their own or not) have none of these things.

I hates me a thief. I've been robbed significantly like five times and lost of $20,000 worth of tools over a six year period. If I ever catch someone red-handed, I'm probably going to jail.

"It ain't all buttons and charts, little albatross. You know what the first rule of sailing is? Love. You take a boat in to sea that you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of worlds. Love keeps her afloat when she oughtta founder... tells ya she's hurtin' 'fore she keens… makes her a home." Captain Malcom Reynolds, Paraphrased
