Country Name: St. Martin (French)
Location Detail: Marigot Bay
Stolen Items: 11.6 inflatable AB dinghy with 15hp outboard
A locked/chained (3/16 SS) 11.6 AB dinghy stolen from the Marigot SXM (FR) town dock between the hours of 4 pm and 6 pm, broad daylight, Sunday afternoon. Reported to the Police.
Good tip from Ken Goodings – Caribbean Navigator Facebook Page:
Another daylight dinghy theft in St Martin, French side. The chain used was 3/16 inch stainless, that’s less than a quarter inch or just under 6 mm. Please consider using the SS chain at least 8-10 mm or 5/16 – 1/2 inch. Heavier SS chain is perhaps just plain less prone to quickie thefts, especially in daylight with people around.
