Well... yeah... but you don't ADMIT it.
Unless you are in need of story material.

Re: Accused sailboat thief hung around marina for days before stealing boat

Why did he remove the hacth and companion way and throw them overboard? What did he think would happen when rain came?
I am curious to know if he had any sort of charts or route planned or if he was simply sailing into the unknown to die.
Theres crazy and then theres insane. Which was he?

Hell without riff-raff, a marina is just a collection of boats and "for sale" signs... and yachties.
I'm riff-raff. i'm cool with that.

I never forgot to tie up, but last year I forgot to untie one line before heading out. It was a redundant snubber line meant to prevent my boat from rubbing on the fenders, so it was intentionally undersized (just clothesline) so it would break in a storm instead of ripping the cleat off the boat. It broke just as designed.

I caught a guy on my boat once . He got the help he needed in the Critical Care ward at St. Mary's.

Confess, Julie, you thought about it at some time in your life, didn't you?
Me so guilty too...

Sounds like a case of joy-sailing to me. Guy should be punished by working on the owner's boat for a month.

Good points. Probably the best security is that no one knows how to operate my 34 year old boat. I'm mostly paranoid of people that would just let it loose just to be randomly malicious. I guess that could happen anywhere.
