Re: First Thief Experience

We had something similar a few nights ago in Stuart, FL. I was fast asleep, wife heard voices and walked to companionway and realized there were two guys in a small powerboat whispering while hanging onto our backstay. She turned on the big flashlight and they shouted an expletive an took off with no running lights. I think they were after my new Magma fillet table. The new four strokes are so damn quiet.

Re: First Thief Experience

It's beginning to sound like it's a lot more perilous, at least for dinks and OB's, up there in the good ol' US of A, than it is down here in this crime-infested third world, that so many seem afraid to visit. LOL.
My how quickly things change.

Re: First Thief Experience

Wow!!

We did big discussion re security after an incident in Grenada a few eyars ago and worked out the best security is bright cockpit lights. Either on all the time or with movement detectors.
creeps dont like light.

Also agree with the others about reporting all incidents to the police. Crims rely on people not reporting, not organising a response.
Dont know but the police may already have 20 other reports on this dude and a report would have solved all 20 crimes, you just don't know.

Hope it doesnt happen again.

Hope your wife is oK, can be quite scary experience.

Re: First Thief Experience

The marina reported it

I didn’t tell your guys that when my wife yelled at the guy and told him to get off the boat he replied “I’m not doing anything”

The utboard is now cable locked to the stern rail, the dinghy is fully on the Davies, and the onboard can be taken off the dinghy without tools and being in the dinghy

Sorry to hear of your experience Don. That would be very unnerving.

More population more crime....more noteriety

The issue of the crime in Mexican resorts was suppressed for many years by the tourism industry . It now becoming known. I wouldn't be surprised it's similar in the areas you frequent

Understand I am not saying that SOME areas of the US are not crime ridden
