  SPECIAL SECURITY NOTICE – 12TH MAY 2017 BOAT SECURITY – HEADS UP! We have had another burglary on a yacht on the swing moorings yesterday morning in the early hours. They broke in and rummaged the boat, taking food, fishing tackle and shackles. They then deployed the life raft and paddled ashore. We are urging all boat owners to install on board alarms to protect their property directly, we can only cover so much with patrols.
