    I wouldn’t bother with an alarm, I’d have a remote scuttling device fitted. Like a large plughole, it would automatically open up once it detects that is 10 miles away from shore. Let Poseidon hold a trial at sea!

    I am not sure why you would own a boat and not have a boat alarm installed. They go off when it leaves the dock and you can GPS track the whereabouts of the boat pretty simple prevention.

    All youse complaining about how the police don’t do anything about stolen boats and prevention.
    Please, any one of you, come up with ideas/suggestions on how the police are to do this alone?? How can they prevent this???????? How can they recover a boat once they leave the cut to open sea????
    I’d love to know before my own boat gets stolen. Right now all I do is leave it with an empty fuel tank and lock it to the dock with a bicycle lock!! LOL So far, so good…

      Helping immigration to secure our borders and understanding who is here and why would be a start!

        I’m not sure that’s the best answer and everyone on this page seems to be blaming the police.
        Do you genuinely think that the boats thieves are illegals? They are stealing boats in order to get back home? You’re suggesting these are people from nearby islands like Honduras, Jamaica or Cuba??? Not trying to be disagreeable, I’m just not real sure of that and I really want to understand. So, they somehow land here illegally, to….. I don’t know, rob folk and then steal a boat to take the loot ‘n’ booty back home. You’d still need to be pretty well prepared with extra gas cans etc. So are there any missing gas cans or extra purchases of them from our stores? Maybe the police could start there!
        I think I’m on to something here!

          The people stealing the boats are illegals here who need to leave without going through border controls, foreign criminals coming here to steal boats, or locals who steal the boats and take them out of the jurisdiction to sell. Any Caymanian who takes a boat in this fashion then has to find a way to get back undetected.

          In every single case someone has crossed international borders illegally.

          In every single case, tighter immigration controls would help.

    • me says:

      you can put an alarm on your boat that once the line is disconnected on a closed loop circuit, the alarm will go off!!!
      Either have it on your batteries or shore power!
      Be easy to set up and would be loud enough to attract attention.

    If you want some excellent examples of racism just read the comments on this article.There is no evidence at this point that this was a Jamaican or an expatriate.

      Everyday Caymunkind racism.

    • Anonymous says:

      Really…… a Caymanian is stealing boats? What are they doing with them? Taking their families up to Rum Point on Sundays?

      It is far more likely that someone who is on the island illegally needs a ride home without having to go through immigration or customs steals a boat and takes it home to the nearest island and sells it there.

      Not racist at all…….. just common sense.

    Boat number72 gone to the sea of no return and yet we have so many here in our Police service who claim they are here to help us police or little island. According to our colonial power they are here to reflect the diversity of our community. But had the shoe been on the other foot i am absolutely sure we would have and have recover their stolen items and returned them back to them Why cant it be done for us?????

    this is already worse than Jamaica, Honduras and any other country you want to try to be better at. Locals stealing look at your education system to start.

        She should be celebrated, but I believe it was an AS level, not an A level, and in a subject that almost no-one takes and is being discontinued.

          Unique minds are often extremely intelligent but also at times labeled crazy or even lazy.

          Here is a dumb Q – What have you accomplished to challenge her in the realm of the AS levels, specifically on the “discontinued” subject that you cannot take it seems, even to get legitimately obtain equal stats to valid such a sneak-diss.

    This could be solved by a quota of how many workers allowed to work on our island. Ex. 100 people from small islands around us . 500 from larger countries with proper police records that can’t be bought. At the same time we wouldn’t loose our culture and way of life influenced by undisciplined individuals.

    Depends on whether or not the next government starts enforcing the immigration laws of this country, even if it means that the kin of certain government officials have no automatic place here.

    Probably in Jamaica by now, being stripped down and sold as parts.

    I feel sorry for the owners…seems like you cannot have anything nice these days without criminals helping themselves, with impunity.

    It’s happening on a regular basis, this must be an organised bunch of cretins taking advantage of Cayman’s lack of water policing.

      Dear Mr. Judgy. Kindly advise what can be done to protect a boat from being stolen? Lock it to the dock? How? What kind of steel cutters cannot cut through locks?
      Where there’s a will, there’s a way.

        Pull it out of the water and place it back on the trailer. The theft of such a large boat could’ve been prevented once placed there. Trailer ball lock on trailer head, chains on both sides of the axle. Clearly that’s too much work to prevent the theft of such an expensive boat, so yea let’s just leave it tied down on dock.

        The bigger picture is never in sight.

          Naïve new boat owner here…
          Hahaha My boat trailer was already stolen.
          As well as my anchor and anything else that was not bolted down. I did leave the little Plexiglas cover to the VHF radio open in case they needed a radio. At least they wouldn’t break the cover to get to it.
          Right in front of my own home. Getting a dog to live in the back yard now…

          • Inspector Clouseau says:

            Sorry for your lost as a result of the theft. People need to be proactive instead of reactive.

            The previous CoP had his trailer stolen too but was able to locate it with the help of the CCTV installed throughout the island.

            Things have gotten so bad that we do need to have an alarm on our boat. That we do need to have chains on our axles. That we go through a hards days work to remove valuables from our boat and place in somewhere secure until we need it again.

            If you want to enjoy it, make every effort to secure it.

              Some west bay men took his trailer…rumor has it went to trail but as usual slap on the wrists for those gents they work for government

        Looking at this boat you could’ve padlocked a chain through the engine mount, with plastic sleeving added so not to course damage.
        Then a second chain through the nose of the boat, with the other ends attached underneath dock.
        Yes, could still be eventually taken but going to discourage some and attract more attention than one just secured with mooring lines.
        Fitting a GPS tracker would also help as some provide worldwide coverage.
