Assuming the watermaker
was installed it would at the bare minimum take several minutes to remove screws and cut hoses for a quick and dirty grab. But then add batteries (assuming this is the house and/or starting battery bank), salon
table, fridge compressor
? This is not something that could be done in a few minutes and tossed in a backpack to sneak ashore.
If done by a smart, well organized group of thieves (like most petty crooks are smart and well organized)? in an area where there are many nearby boats that might be watching their neighbors then it might be accomplished. One theory, one or two of the thieves could board the boat quietly (swim out maybe), spend a couple of hours stripping the boat and laying stuff in the cockpit
, signal their partners to meet them with a small boat, quickly load all the stuff and leave. However the stuff went away, it was not a typical boat theft; grab a few valuable, portable goodies and run away.
