Mood: logic cannot get thru to the illogical

Sucks. The only way to avoid that theft would be to take it out of the water or sleep on it with proper deterrent.

Reminds me of a older woman that moved to Costa Rica to be with her boyfriend. She needed to make a living so she bought an expensive boat that she could charter out. She was aware of the theft possibilities so she hired a watchman to be there when they weren't.

Well, one night the boat goes missing and the watchman ends up with a bump on his head. The boat was never recovered.

So for a living she stated baking banana bread...
It was some really tasty banana bread to !

Since I've given up all hope, I feel much better

Someone needs to design a hidden "anchor alert" system that transmits to a shore alarm (battery powered). Boat moves >100 yds and the alarm wakes the dead. Takes into account anchor swing before alarm.

That’s an amazing idea. I’ve had boats pull the anchor and drift off during the night a few times. Pretty freaky waking up and not seeing a boat where it should be. Especially when you are on an island.

it'll be safer when the new La Escalera Nautica marina is'll be able to chain your boat to the dock and there'll be 24 hour guards standing watch. ;)

The term "Anchor Watch" might apply here. Skippers have been known to make certain hands stand them outside the wheelhouse. Falling down tends to keep you alert. Running em up the beach although a pain when the tide drops seems to work at the coops up and down the pac coast. Since Alphonsinas lacks a decent ramp maybe some of the guys could go together and get a tractor. That 20/20 hindsight deal.

Today almost every boat in the Indian Ocean has "anti-pirate" measures in place, moving or docked!
