She could probably have done that and solved this mystery in the amount of time it took to make her original post, but then, look how much entertainment we all would have missed out on?!

It is not, of course and your post adds nothing to the discussion. Sometimes, if you have nothing to say, it's best to remain silent.
You are kidding right? "the usefulness of this forum", how about the usefulness of this thread? There's been three serious posts out of 211 and yours is one. Take a chill pill.

Both of you, no need for a pissing contest. I think it has been a laugh from the git-go.

Someone keeps adjusting my dockline

Doesnt get any funnier than: "Typical of CF we have gone from a completely benign situation where a 2 minute conversation would suffice to setting poison traps and setting up machine guns on the boat." Man thats funny!!!

Not that it's really germane to this discussion, but I had a female Korean karate teacher who used to kick my ass on a regular basis. I don't know how logical she was since we spoke different languages, but damn she was fast...

Fair winds,

Perhaps since you are obviously very quick to label other people with denigrating labels, I can certainly understand her desire to kick your ass on a regular basis.

After all, the judicious use of power should come hand in hand with the power attained. The desire to use it mercilessly was obviously a conscious decision on her part.

You're right, it wasn't germane to the discussion, but was nonetheless revealing and educational.

Makes no sense? I didn't see any degrading labels he said she would kick his ass.

So if we were to set a booby trap using a falling anchor as the "trap"... what type of anchor would be best to use?

Oh, and I thought the fun was just starting. I'm with Andy73, except I was going to ask what kind of anchor she should be using to keep her stern from drifting out.

From what I recall at the beginning of the thread, she claimed to be the only one living aboard in that marina. In that case, there are no neighbors to saunter over and readjust her dock lines. That's part of what was baffling her, who could it be if there's no one else living there?

If you're hinting her stalker found her again, I think SS will go straight to the police.

Re: Someone keeps adjusting my dockline

Can we just stop this "you said. no I didn't", BS and turn it into a gun thread?

Get away from the dock/marina sometime and enjoy the ambiance.

Actually, she said that the line loosener WAS a neighbor (non live aboard) who visited their boat about 3 times a week and she knew when because she noticed their shadow passing by her boat. She also said she could "easily" step outside and take their picture when they walked by. If you can "easily" take a picture of someone walking by your boat, how much more difficult can it be to ask them if they've been "helping" you with your dock lines and ask them to stop?

This is what she actually posted. Her neighbor only comes twice a month, she says her line handler did it 3 times in the last week. Are you referring to a different post?

Quote:
Before you all think I'm paranoid, I'll easily be able to get proof of this. I've been on board the boat several times in the early afternoon when I see a persons shadow crossing the setting sun beaming through my portholes. A persons shadow could only appear if someone was walking down the dock between my boat and my neighbors boat. My neighbor isn't a live aboard and is only here a couple of times a month.

I noticed the shadow three times last week, and whoever it was they went to the end of the dock and were there for a minute, then walked off. I've noticed my stern getting further and further away from the dock, and yes, it's 2:20 am and I've finally put two and two together. Someone is loosening the stern dock line. Why? I have no idea. I'm friendly with everyone here, as far as I know I have no enemies, but obviously someone doesn't like me a'workin' away on my boat so much.

I could easily wait till the shadow crosses the sun and step outside and take a photo. But my question is, is loosening someone's dock line illegal? I feel like this is silly marina drama to even mention to the harbormaster.

Re: Someone keeps adjusting my dockline

On a serious note... someone keeps drinking my beer!

I looked in the fridge earlier and there was definitely less beer than there was the other day. This isn't the first time i've noticed it either!
In fact, a few moments ago a shadow passed by, and now this beer next to me is half empty!

It's eerie.
