We spent two nights on a mooring in Roseau, and on the second night, August 12th 2008, the boat was boarded at 4:15 a.m. by two men.

I have installed driveway alarms on both of my sugar scoops and the men set them off when they came on board. The auidable alarm scared them and one jumped off the boat while the other tried to hide in his small inflatable under my boat.

When I spotted him he rowed away to pick up his friend in the water. No one was hurt, and nothing was taken.
