Re: First Thief Experience

We used to encounter that fairly often at my marina, but not so much anymore. I keep a camera near my hatch, and snap a photo of them. I have also occasionally chased them, yelling vulgar threats loud enough so that I can hear my voice echoing off nearby buildings. At 4:00 am the voice carries, probably waking neighbors. At my advanced age, I have no hope of catching them, but I don't want to catch them, because then I'd have to fight them, and don't think it would go well for me. I want to create an image in their mind, so that they hear my deep, thunderous voice in their memory every time they doze off for the next month. That's what seems to stop them from returning.
