Croatia, Pula: Dinghy and Outboard Theft - July 2012

We are anchored in Uvala Kanalic, Croatia, close to Pula and Veruda Marina.

During the night our inflatable dinghy was cut free and the outboard stolen. Fortunately the dinghy was left floating free in the bay and was recovered, outboard gone. It appears that at least 3 other dinghys were also stolen during the night. In talking to the local "veggie delivery" guy it has been a regular occurrence this summer.

Be forewarned...

Editor's note: Tom says that the dinghy was just tied up with a rope and that the outboard secured with a small lock.
