Re: Run-aground sailboat was stolen

The boat has been rescued and is in the yard at Bay Marine in Richmond. Broken rudder, bent prop, engine (apparently) "burnt up."

Re: Run-aground sailboat was stolen

The rumor of losing its keel was exaggerated? Not surprised. Confused for rudder perhaps.

I will offer the poor bastard a hundred grand to take the mess off his hands.

Sounds like they drove off without opening the raw water seacock.

Re: Run-aground sailboat was stolen

From the original linked article:

"When authorities boarded the Darling, they found cases of pale ale and a pizza box..."

Only on the west coast would they identify the style of beer aboard.
Although, it does make it easier to feel more sympathetic toward the thieves. If they had been drinking Coors Light iced tea,for example, well...

I gotta wonder if they're gonna have to disassemble the engine to get it out -- makes my little Perky seem like child's play.

I don't want to step on too many toes but please refrain from speculating on deriliction of duty when it comes to this situation. Before Darling was moved to Sausalito (which appeared on the news to have non-gated dock access) the boat was berthed on the end of my row at Marina Bay (two slips away from my boat) for about 8 months. The 'crew' were paid to look after the boat but they also own a Pearson 35 which looked imaculate when berthed next to Darling for a short time. So far as I know they live aboard the 35 and do long distance transportation and maintenance of Darling. I don't think they live aboard Darling unless they are transporting it. The owner sails the boat themselves; not crewed.

I never met the couple that take care of the boat formally but they seemed like nice folks when passing on the docks and my slip neighbor chatted with them a couple of times which provided me the information I'm posting here. The boat was amazing up close; the rod rigging looked like it was ~2" in diameter. When my dock neighbor commented on the immense size of the mast and rigging to the crew they replied that the mast alone cost over 2 million.

Two of the three arrested were released because their story was that the 3'rd guy was offering to take them out on the bay and the boat was legally in his posession (a friend of the owner or something). Seems like they had time to come up with a story before they were arrested; but I guess the police bought the story so they were let go. The person who is in custody is being held on 1 million dollars bail; the damage to Darling is estimated at 100,000 but will likely go higher. Rudder, keel joint/stub, tank(s), engine, folding prop, flood damaged interior; it's going to be expensive.

Re: Run-aground sailboat was stolen

I agree, you can't throw the crew to the sharks unless there is some evidence they were negligent. I'm not aware of too many crews that are paid to stand guard 24/7, particularly at its home base.

Its hard to know what the exact damage is, with all the rumors, but I'm willing to bet it will far exceed 100 Gs. A yard sees an 82 ft Oyster with insurance and the estimate will cost 100 grand . I am aware of a local 60+ ft oyster that needed its mast repaired and I'm told the bill was a quarter million. I don't know the boat intimately, but understand the mast is some high tech material.

Re: Run-aground sailboat was stolen

Stay tuned for the White House press conference at 9PM this evening. Congressmen are calling for a fast end to the "drunk and stupid" epidemic and New York's Mayor Bloomberg has issued a ban on 24-can "assault suitcases" of beer, as well as mandating a reduction inthe size of pizza pies. (In NYC, a "regular" pizza is an 18" pie. There's no such thing as a "large", anything smaller is simply called a "personal" size pie. By contrast, most chains sell a 14" or 16" pie, which can actually contain 1/2 as much pizza if you're handy with the math for areal measurements.)

Drunk and stupid! Which one comes first?
