In a nutshell, I have been invited by a friend to do about a month-long sailing/diving adventure in the Eastern Caribbean. We will start in Nassau & wend our way down, finishing in Antigua. He has purchased a 30' sailboat, & a small runabout. His plan is to moor the boat in sheltered areas, then use the runabout to traverse to dive locations. My problem is there will be no one on the sailboat ( or the runabout ) while we are off diving.

It would be possible to tow the smaller craft with us ( we plan shallow dives only - no deeper than 60' ). My main worry is the sailboat & all our possessions therein - do I have cause for concern? Seems to me that anyone could come along & help themselves! Regrettably, my faith in my fellow humans extends only so far.

My friend has sailed/dived the Caribbean for years & assures me that leaving the boat unattended is not an issue, but I would appreciate other experienced Caribbean Sailor's opinions.

I than you in advance for your kind assistance.
