Re: Helpless To Stop Thieves Removing Property From Stranded Yacht

The original story that stared this thread reminds me of an incident I read about a year or so ago on this forum, as I recall.

In that incident, a sailor found himself grounded off the coast of a Cental American country (Honduras IIRC).

He got assistance from locals who took him out to his boat, but then the locals proceeded to strip his boat (and kept the items for themselves) while he watched, and he could not stop them. As I recall, he was frustrated by seeing this, but powerless to stop it.

Perhaps someone will recall that thread and provide a link to the original story.

Yes, I remember that. There is a documentary on it. It was a Cat from memory with a family. They had to remain on the island for some months whilst making repairs. It wasn't about 'theft' though, but a cultural clash. I'll try to locate it. I read about it in a sailing magazine spread.
