Things you would only see in a marina!

Somebody has left this new Westerbeke 30c on the dock, on a Home Depot hand truck (unchained); in the rain; partially covered by a tarp (I know it's a marine motor, but c'mon...at least cover it and hide the fact it's a $10,000 motor!), for a week! This, at a marina where anchors and outboard motors disappear. Call me paranoid, but four strong guys and a pickup truck and.....

Re: Things you would only see in a marina!

I hadn't 'lost' anything in the 6 years I've been at our marina - until last week that is!

Re: Things you would only see in a marina!

I saw a movie recently - The HEist with Gene Hackman [I think} - inside the 'engine' was the gold they stole.

Just think about that!
