Very, very terrible. It seems I hear about theft and parking lot lizards quite frequently at the Dana Point launch ramp.. This guy was not fishing, it was all part of the ruse. Way less conspicuous to tear a boat apart while floating then in the slip. If I could afford a boat so big I could not trailer it, and I cannot, I still would not do it. Thieves piss me off.. Could you imagine going down to your sled and catching mr asshole in progress? The ensuing court costs, lawyers and most likely bail would defeat the purpose of boat ownership... Sorry for your loss....Ap

If he touched that many things on the boat I assume the police got some prints?

There were clean prints on a soda can left behind by him, along with blood that was swabbed and taken into evidence by the initial investigator. However, as we've been told, this isn't a murder, so the likelihood of them actually spending money and resources on running the prints or DNA testing the blood is pretty low. We are crossing our fingers that some connections that we have may be able to push this case for us though, so we'll see over the course of the next week or two... /-:

Since there have been multiple robberies over the years in mission bays dock areas you would think they would try running the prints.

You should call the a local tv news organization. My buddy got his house broken into and literally was on 5 different local news channels filming in my buddies house. They would love to do a story on this. good chance someone will recognize the person in the photo. I'm on E dock and will keep a look out.

Ok, so this is interesting considering that the boat was said to be docked again at nearly 10am and it would seem due to the reports, that the suspect would have possibly left shortly after docking??

If c goats time and sighting is right, then were these people he saw on this boat also the ones involved in the crime? How many people did you see Bill? Does the guy in the recently added photo look like one of the ones you saw? All males or a mix?

To bad he didn't leave behind a scale a bail of weed and some medicine bottles. The police would be all over it for being an unlicensed dispensary. Hell, the attorney general may have joined in too.

With all of the theft that occurs around the landings and docks it would be nice to see all of the said owners pool some of their resources together for security and investigations. Good luck with finding the guy responsible for the deed and hope he gets hammered, tarred and feathered for life.

Tweeker Hobo, darn harbors are loaded with them now that no one goes to jail.

Maybe he'll get his at the hands of another thief.

Damn shame! I feel like it was my boat that was stolen and pillaged. It could have been anyone of us. This scumbag needs to be cuffed and locked up, ASAP! I'll keep an eye out and my fingers crossed.

Sorry for your lost and damages, but wishing you the best possible outcome from this terrible situation.

Hey Bill, thanks for bringing in additional info, but that was us that you would have seen on Saturday at around 5pm. That was about an hour after the cops had left and we were sitting around talking with other marina friends, and yes - a cocktail was definitely in order after the course of that day. :hali_olutta:

We fished the day prior on a beautiful day...doing the only thing that my 8-year old son wanted to do for his birthday...take a day off school and FISH. All of that great day, not knowing that the very next day would sideline us from fishing for a few months. And....we keep pouring...:hali_olutta:

Keep any info coming...thanks guys!

That is one of the craziest stories I've ever heard, one of those "you can't make this shit up" stories.
Only other thing as nuts as this is when the Conception Dive Boat out of SB harbor was taken out for a joy ride by some homeless POS.
This guy knew his way around boats, he was able to get the gens started and the engines and untie and navigate the harbor AT NIGHT!
He manged to make it all the way around Pt. Conception/Arguello into Vandenburg, AT NIGHT! and proceeded to stack the boat on the rocks, grabbed his bike and got off and disappeared onto the bluffs where he was eventually found hiding in the bushes.
Your incident tops that though.
Good luck, hope ya get some of your gear back and your beautiful boat back in order!

Sorry about your experience. It’s a horrible thing to go through! We were also victimized by tweekers when we had our boat in a slip and know how it feels:

https://www.bdoutdoors.com/forums/threads/urgent-message.508990/

I would take that picture to all the sport boats at the landings, and to the boatyards, to see if anybody recognizes the person. He’s definitely been around boats!

Wow, thanks for sharing that Damon! Are you still on D Dock?

I'm assuming that you already looked at the pics I posted of our dude...not the same guy as yours from a few years back, correct? Just confirming....

I wouldn't mention any details about your plan....but you must know you told the world you will soon have all brand new gear. Your boat is in a known spot too. The TV showed your stern!

Hell....this guy may come back!

Get yourself a heck of a security plan. Good Luck. Sorry for your loss.

We gave up our slip and put the boat on blocks back in January for much needed repairs and a new repower. We plan to relaunch the boat around March. Hopefully, a slip will open up for us on D dock by then. Other than the one bad experience, we’ve enjoyed out time there!

Unfortunately, there are a lot of tweakers out there. I’m sure you are dealing with somebody different than the youngsters that went on a “Bonnie and Clyde” style joy ride spree and decided to steal gear off our boat. Based on the photo you attached, I really get the sense that your guy has been around boats for years, and that he has worked on them one way or another. There were no surveillance cameras back when this happened to us.
