Thanks Blackfish. Haha, yeah, I thought the same...definitely knew how to turn on our fuel lines, batteries, etc., but did not know how to park a boat, let alone tie a cleat hitch. (?)

I've also found it odd that a crackhead that needed to steal all this crap to get his next fix, was also willing to run over to Everingham and pay $35 for a half-scoop...(?)


INSIDE JOB!!

This is on top of the items stolen from the 4 pax charters. I also have had a rod taken off the boat while we were on it. The tweeker come along side and swipe it. 2 Weeks ago we walked up on an individual hiding in one of the rubber rafts, he was attempting to steel the outboard motor on it. Chased him into a waiting boat and they took off. Crazy crap there.

That's just weird. We had our boat at The Dana for years with zero problems. Did the dude swim around the gate to get onto your dock?

Stole your epirb you said? Can't that be tracked, on or off? Get with your service provider for that and ask them where your unit is?

From what I know, there is no idea how suspect got on the boat. But he/ they broke the lock and hatch off the cabin. Got in and found the keys inside.
They ran sacked everything did their crack induced party and brought boat back trashed. They must have off loaded the goods somewhere else.
When the suspect returned he ran into dock master Ted. If you know Ted you would understand how this guy was able to weasle his way off the dock. He walked off the dock, past the Dana rental booth and towards the Dana Landing boat ramp. He was gone.
I know this sounds miniscule compared to the tragedy that happened last night. But we would really like to catch these guys.
I haven't talked to my brother today, but they were supposed to get access to the different cameras footage today.
We'll keep updating this. Thanks

Hey Kyle..... how about some sort of description of this guy. you mentioned that Ted saw him, not to mention your brother said the guy was noticed by others.

Have you guys hit up the bait barge yet or contacted them by phone to find out who was working the barge from say 4:30am to 10:00am to see if he had someone else with him when he pulled up to the barge? Usually with a boat that size and being a flybridge, it would almost seem he had someone with him?

Keep the info rolling..... try and get us a description.

That sucks. Ted certainly isn't going to stop anyone from getting away but hopefully can give you a good description of the guy.

This piece of shit knows you knows your habits and knew your boat . How did he start the motor. The guys at the bait dock has had to of seen him before, how else would have he known where to get bait , Go there and ask them if they remember him soon as possible and the boat he was on ., This guy knows boats he has to be close , and to leave a meth pipe on the boat what a stupid azz .If police do not take dna samples when they ck it out and run on the data base . For sure this guy has a record bug them to do it sure your ins will pay for everything , who is your ins co, fill a police report yet . Im really hoping this isint an ins scam right . Good luck bait guys today for questions to start. B
This is my line of thought. Addicts steal from thier own mom, grandma, daughter, etc.

The brass control knobs (don't know size or weight) may show up at a metal recycler in the area in exchange for a little cash. Sometimes ID is required at those places for selling brass, copper, wiring, etc. Those knobs would be unique if sold for scrap. Just a thought. I hope they catch him and that your gear is recovered.

Wouldn't a description of the perp be one of the very first things asked for from those who saw this person..... yet here it is 3 days later and still no description? If you really want to catch this person, then info such as this is pretty critical, and the sooner the better....... you know what they say, "Time is of the essence"

I only say all of this because I'm rolling off the info already given that this guy was seen by more than one person and even confronted...... yet we still have no description??

Trying to help ya here and spread the word to those in that area.

Dude.... scroll back, the description is stated and quoted (I'm not going to find it for you).. your obsession with description is almost as mind-boggling as this situation.

Haha..... really!?

You just might want to go back and recheck yourself LOL

If your going off the description that I think you must be, then you got taken pretty good.

Obsessions kinda funny as well, since all I am doing is trying to help this guy track down and maybe catch this clown, and since it has been stated that he was seen by more than one and even confronted, then it's a little odd that the description hasn't been given....... it's probably one of the most important pieces of info in maybe finding this guy as I would bet money he roams that area. Like I said, I'm around that area, live close by and know others who are in that area as well.

So back to my obsession...... how bout a description LOL

My apologies, Unknown Fisherman.

Didn't realize this guy was just cracking jokes. You're correct, I was wrong.

It's all good Tommy, no worries on my part at all!

I just would love nothing more than to see this person get caught, and I just feel time is kind of critical in terms of good info to give us a better shot at possibly catching this knucklehead.
