Well Jason... I can't speak for everyone, but I haven't seen any other cruisers in the same areas lock their dinghies to docks on shore, nor do I see them bringing up their dinghies at night in the anchorages.

Have you heard of anyone's dinghy being stolen or have you heard of any crime whatsoever against a cruiser in the the areas you've mentioned?

ETA: So far you've mentioned, England, Guernsey, Spain, the Balerics, Italy, Montenegro, Croatia, Corsica, Sardinia.

From having never heard of a crime against a cruiser in England, Guernsey, Spain, the Balerics, Italy, Montenegro, Croatia, Corsica and Sardinia would you conclude that there has never been a crime against a cruiser in these locations or would you suspect that you simply have never heard of any crime.

Jason,

If you're worried about crime in these areas, then it's probably best for you to stay away, remain at home and lock your doors. Cruising might not be suitable for your level of fear tolerance.

'Nuff said.

I'm not worried about crime. I just like to ask you questions until your unwilling to answer.
