Re: Someone stole my dinghy!!

Dink theft is common in the Bahamas also in the popular town anchorages.

Our technique is to paint the drive leg in part with primer and different paint.

It will look like it was re assembeled from old parts.

In the Carib this and taking the engine cover on a rocky shore and grinding it , standing on it , was able to keep an Evinrude 18 on the back of a Whaler the entire winter!

A personal TRIUMPH as the 18 was the french fisherman's dream engine.

Yes heavy chain too.

IN New York City the motto was "Show ****", the thief will look for better pickins elsewhere.
