Hi folks,
A reminder that its getting close to Christmas and although it means turkey and lots of food stuff for a lot of cruisers it means more expense to some folks that cant afford it and sadly some turn to stealing from boats as a way of aiding their christmas.
Lets all try to force those folks to give love for Christmas instead of Solar Panels, Batteries, Outboards etc.
Try to lock up your gear and put up some extra lights around the place and an extra word to security guards to be reminded to do their job especially around this time.
Have a carefree christmas
Derek and Zory and a new crew on the way

Very Happy

....thanks for this reminder. also, be aware of pickpockets in town, but always keep a spare coin or so for the ones who really need it.

....and if you are overserved, get the extras para llevar (to go) and pass them on when you see someone in the street who might need a good meal.

...happy holidaze

Saturday night a launcha with what my night guard described as a "very quiet motor" was prowling boats in my marina. He shined a light at them and they left. About two hours later they came back and were attempting to quietly slip into my marina dinghy area. The night guard fired three pistol shots into the water and they decided it was not a good idea to stick around.

After discussing this further with the guard I believe the motor was an electric outboard and they are very quiet.

All marinas should have extra security this time of year and that security should be vigilant.

The attachment works thanks but the outboard lock falls a bit short as they usually rob the whole dingy then cut of the lock at their leisure, One thing thats needed as Captain John showed is good security in Marinas as a start

A good reminder for thieves would be to open up your 12ga. shells, empty out the pellets and replace them with rock salt. This reminder will be the "gift that keeps on giving," a non-fatal, fast-acting and long-lasting reminder that "Crime Does Not Pay."
