Yet another yacht storage
season is starting here in Trinidad.
Despite warning of 'Lock It or Loose It' and lift
you dinghies at night ...... we are still getting dinghy
thefts on a regular basis.
I think the dinghies are getting cut up after the engines are removed for 'recycling'. i.e. this is probably a 'professional' criminal rather than a yachty wanting a new dink.
with a 30 hp motor
'went missing' last night. Yet again the dinghy was left in the water
Not only does leaving dinghies in the water
at night put the owner at risk of loosing it ...... it also attracts other criminals here for the easy pickings.
Last year we had a number of robberies ..... some with firearms ... some involving machete's.
Please, please be sensible about your security
when you come down here ... It really was hassardous last year!!!
