From the folks at Noonsite – Curacao Marine – Break-in at Long Term Storage Yard
Pertinent quote from the write up – ‘Curacao, as with many of the Caribbean Islands, has seen a sharp increase in crime, particularly petty theft, in the last year. Cruisers leaving their yachts on the hard should be sure to remove all items of value from above decks and secure them down below, as well as ensuring that all entry points to the boat are properly secured.’
Petty theft is really only petty when it happens to someone else. Anytime you have something stolen, it is a loss of time, investment and your sense of security. Take appropriate measures for your own security/responsibility, as much as you can.
