This from Noonsite – Grenada: Lock your Dinghy with a big chain, or risk losing it.
From the posting – “It seems Grenada has now become “lock your dinghy with a big chain” or else it is gone. Surprisingly, many cruisers still ignore this advice and a glance at the dinghy dock shows a number of dinghies just tied on with their painters. This makes it easy for the criminals to steal and of course they always return to the scene of a crime as it is easy pickings.
Best advice is to invest in a substantial chain/cable and lock for both your dinghy and your outboard. Always lock both when leaving the dinghy ashore and remove any loose items, and when on board, be sure to hoist the dinghy on deck, remove the outboard and secure both items. These security measures should be taken throughout the Caribbean.”
To which I will add that it is good advice to follow anywhere you may travel.
