Marine crime on the increase – an appeal for help

Marine crime on the increase – an appeal for help

Tuesday, 02 August 2011

Perhaps it’s no great shock to hear that marine crime is on the increase, but particularly worrying is the shear scale of current thefts from boats in Devon and Cornwall. All too often boat crime is seen as ‘a minor inconvenience that the insurance will cover’ but its clear that what is going on in many cases is well organised, well thought out mass theft of outboards in particular. In some cases some yards have been targeted not once, but twice within a matter of weeks and its likely outboards were all but being stolen to order.

Rib Raid

Rib Raid

Tuesday, 05 October 2010

Sometimes, I come to the conclusion you just get too many emails. Anyhow, whilst poring through Friday’s delivery of the odd two or three hundred emails in my inbox, I noticed one titled Rib Raid; nothing to do with technical redundancy on servers. When I opened it, I found it was an invitation to go and join the guys at Boatshed, Hamble for a brief soiree around the Solent.
