Bahamas: Many More Boat Thefts in Georgetown – May 2016

This weekend was the Family Island Regatta in Georgetown. Two dinghies with outboards were stolen off the back of cruising boats anchored off of Chat & Chill. A working skiff with outboard was also stolen off of the back of a Long Island boat that was in Georgetown for the Regatta.

These are not the only thefts in the past several months. Boats from cruising inflatable dinghy to much larger boats with dual large outboards are being stolen.

The police have done nothing about any of the thefts and do not seem interested in pursuing any of the cases. If you talk to many of the locals on the island they seem to know who is responsible to the police probably know also.

Those boats staying in Georgetown are resorting to hauling their boats out of the water at night and other methods. However at least 2 boats that were chained have had the chains cut in order to steal the boats & outboards.
