I agree with Simon.
If you have your doors locked, if you have your dinghy
locked, if you have a light in your cockpit
, then even the less secure southern islands of Trinidad and SVG are not too bad.
But if you leave your door wide open onto the street in New York
city what do you expect?
If you leave your car door open with keys in the ignition what do you expect?
If your open front door, window or fire escape is shrouded in darkness so a criminal is covered from view, what do you expect?
Also... If you are so stupid to not lock up you are putting me and all other cruisers at higher risk too. Once they know what easy targets we are they come in droves. So dont be selfish. Lock up.
