Published 6 years ago, updated 4 years ago
Country Name: Indonesia, Papua Barat Province
Location Detail: Sorong harbour
EVENT: Theft of outboard motor
Stolen Items: 40 Hp Outboard Motor
A motor-sailor liveaboard was anchored near several other vessels of all types in the central Sorong harbour area (opposite the main landing point at Usaha Mina).
The outboard motor – which seems not to have been secured with a safety chain or lock – was removed from the dive tender which was on a long painter and deployed astern of the mother vessel.
A light on the dive tender may have been a deterrent.
