Re: Someone keeps adjusting my dockline

[QUOTE=jtsailjt;1747692]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?[/QUOTE]

Or as suggested several times, secure the docklines so that can't be easily adjusted or adjusted from the dock. This is a simple solution and avoids any possible confrontation.

I have to wonder why she didn't just do this in the first place and not even post about it. ??????????

I think she meant that she killed the neighbour after said neighbour was caught messing with her lines. Now she drags the neighbour's corpse around every couple of days, in a shadowy manner, as a reminder to all of what happens when you mess with a boat that doesn't belong to you.

That's how I read it, anyway.


Peace.

Re: Someone keeps adjusting my dockline

Actually, the first post says the non-liveaboard neighbor comes about twice a month, and the loosener was seen three times in a week. Please, let's not keep quoting garbled facts like this.

Right, because this thread makes so much sense if you just keep the quotes straight!!

The plot thickens. Or sickens?

Now we have 1. The OP, 2. Two dogs 3. Rarely seen live aboard neighbor, 4. Often seen via shadow only, mysterious dockline handler. All we need is the sabre or a gun hanging from the bulkhead and we have a theater production of "The Phantom of the Marina" or "The Docks of War".

It's eerie."

Yeah. And I've noticed all our bottles have leaks at the tops! Space aliens, maybe?

I wish you would keep what ever is doing it and stop sending it to me.

At my marina, the mystery in question is "who leaves the clubhouse bathroom doors open."

It is open too often and attracting the flys. Talk about getting buzzed.

I suppose a security camera would help identify, but suppose it's everyone? Think "Murder on the Orient Express", oui, mon ami?

I'm lost, are you saying the liveaboard neighbor comes twice a month or is it the loosener who comes tree times per week? Has the liveaboard been seen or just his shadow, assuming it's a he... but could be a she? Can we be sure the liveaboard is in fact a liveaboard, and not the shadow of the loosener who's shadow is spotted three times per week?

Are the birds living in the marina who frequently cast their shadows considered liveaboards or looseners because they fly by more often than the loosener who we assume is a he.... but could possibly be a she?

The other ten times is the shadow stealing our beer.

You are right but it has become comical. Although I think it has been since the git-go.
