Robbed
Stan/rainy
05/12/2013, Fronteras anchorage

Last night some robbers came aboard and got all 5 of fishing poles, TV, DVD player, $200 in cash from Eleanor and two of her cards. Also took cards from Joyce. Will be awhile before all that's missing is discovered. Luckily nothing critical to sailing appears short.

Must have had someone watching from ashore as we dinghied in. Had to be at least two or three involved. You would not think theft would be a problem here being we are so close to other sailors. We came back about 8:00pm and everything had been tossed. At this point probably $2,000 in missing property.
==================

Stan is a friend of ours from one of our former marina families. Please keep a sticky up about the Fronteras anchorage, I think many cruisers who are not aware of this forum think it's safe there, having heard good things about Rio Dulce.

And Happy Birthday to all whose birthdays we missed...

We are not in the river at the moment but would like some more detailed information

i.e.
Assume no one hurt?
Where was the boat?
Was it broken in to?

It does look like the original message was from last year.

http://riodulcechisme.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?t=8251

It was in April/May 2013 four boats were robbed 'Utila style', i.e. wait till the owner leaves the boat and burglarize it while a contact on shore watches for the owner to return. Same 'M.O.' as well... take nothing related to the operation of the boat.

Keep an eye open.

I read it and assumed that Catamariner did not know the difference between 'robbed' and burglarized. And that his internet is much, much, slower than even mine to be finally posting it.
