Kuala Bintulu,Sarawak, 10 July, 2012

Last night our dinghy together with outboard were stolen.

We are anchored at 3d 10'.12 N 113d 02'.31 E about 50m from the Customs Dept. Jetty. Our dinghy was tied with a painter and a steel cable with padlock to our yacht. Both the painter and cable had been cut.

We reported the theft to the police, marine department and water police.

The water police officer told us that this was the 4th time this year that a visiting yacht had had their dinghy stolen.
