Country Name: SVG

Location Detail: Bequia Admiralty Bay- Port Elizabeth

EVENT: Vandalism

Stolen Items: Dinghy engine damaged



A yacht moored in Admiralty Bay took their dinghy to a nearby small (restaurant) dock for dinner. A man greeted them and tied the dinghy to the dock. When the owners proceeded to lock the dinghy he became upset and yelled “Bequia is not the United States, people do not lock things here”. They locked the dinghy and the man continued to yell as they went to the restaurant.

When they returned after dinner the outboard would not start.

The next morning a close inspection revealed that the spark plug wire had been cut. A report was made to the police.
