Country Name: Panama
Location Detail: San Blas Wasaladup
Stolen Items: 11 ft. Boston Whaler and 15 HP Mercury engine
SECURED: Not Locked
DETAILS: Overnight an in-the-water and not locked dinghy went “missing”. There were 2 separate lines securing the dinghy to the yacht, both were now untied (not frayed or chafed) at the dinghy end but still secure to the yacht. The owners conducted an extensive search that day and did not locate the dinghy. A $100 reward was offered. 3 days later the dinghy was “found” and the promised reward paid. The outboard (which had not been locked to the dinghy) had been removed and was inside the dinghy, the fuel tank and other items were still in place.
