Re: Run-aground sailboat was stolen

So where was the paid crew?

Keeping the vessel "safe" is their job, and a boat like this certainly had at least 2 if not more full time crew aboard.

Re: Run-aground sailboat was stolen

I took a look at the ais track. From what I looked at, the track starts outside the gate, heads south clearing the left coast, then makes several zigzag back and forths, then continues on a course strait for the beach.
Question-
What was all the zig-zaggy about?
It looks like a mob drill. Somebody's hat blew off or the like, and then went back to get it, or tried. I suppose being drunk is good enough reason for the zig zags but there could be foul play, or some mutiny among thieves? I am just sayin', something happened there.

Don't over think it. They are thieves. They are dumb. They will have their day in court. Whomever insured that boat is going to pay mightily......Unless........

Re: Run-aground sailboat was stolen

No word on whether the cases of pale ale have been salvaged? Maybe that's why the thieves didn't want to abandon ship.

A Charter Crew does not necessarily live on the boat. They more often come aboard when there's a charter.

Judging from the photographs, the thieves look like the typical doped up street people one very often sees in Sausalito (and for that matter the "Hashberry" in the City and lower Telegraph Avenue in Bezerkely), commonly the remaining refugees from the "summer of Love" that turned on, tuned out, and never got the Memo that the times they were a change'n.

Hopefully the yacht can be saved...

Re: Run-aground sailboat was stolen

I'm absolutely flabbergasted there were no anti-theft devices or methods on board.

Lets' be honest here folks, not a single one of the standard ignition systems on a boat would take more than 5 minutes to short around.

For example, even I spring the 30 bucks for a hidden switch to my fuel pump.

10 minutes of thought, a hour of doing - and 3 million saved.
Heck, even a bicycle lock on the helm could have deterred this.
