Great day ruined by scum

Rate this Entry
Well this is a short rant about some low life scum that can't help but thieve. So yesterday I went out for a solo fish for the first time ever in a powered vessel. Still fish-less as far as the eating kind, but none the less great day and totally stoked. I learnt so much more about the bay fishing by myself, then i ever would have worrying about mates/missus snags or tying knots etc. Managed to launch and retrieve the boat by myself and quickly I might add.

All this sadly came to an end, when some low life scum decided to come onto my property, then jumped in my boat and helped themselves to gear. Albeit replaceable and no property damage. The feeling of mistrust and violation is something I have to deal with.

To the low life's, what goes around comes around.

    What can one say without a beat'em up thread developing, albeit we feel a lot better after sharing our own experiences ( too numerous these days, I think it is actually getting worse)
    What was taken? Might help to list the things which are easily identifiable, any particular items with their own signature? ie: one of custom rods? Anything engraved? My brother had mag wheels returned to him because he could tell the police specific markings on the inside of the rims. Got the culprits too!! I actually thought you were going to tell us that you came back to the ramp and they had lifted your trailer. My brothers came within a whiskar, they belted the trailer hitch so hard the weld let go on one side.. So its now got such a weld job done on it even thor could not break it! Suckers!

    Nah it was just something i have to put down to a lesson learnt, it was just gimbal, knives, pliers etc pretty much all the lose stuff that you think "who will want to take that". more a violation of privacy than something to go to the cops. Since then i pretty much strip the boat. but this really hinders the getting away early in the morning when you have to lug it all from the shed. i have just ordered a travel cover so hopefully its a case of if they can't see it they are less likely to jump into it. and possibly protect it from the eggs.... the second time i left it out they egged the boat. i didn't realise until the sun rose and i was in the middle of the bay. i don't know what i did to piss someone off but at that stage luck was not on my side.

    I have heard so many bad stories of people's gear being lifted. and when you drive around bayside suburbs there are boats everywhere. I'm amazed how brazen the lowlifes are and for that matter how they just don't respect other peoples property. its not like we fell from the sky blessed with means to own boats. We have all made choices and sacrifices which has allowed us to own a boat.

    once again Scalem thanks for the comment
