(DATE: 2014-08-29) CSSN has received multiple reports from owners with boats currently stored on the hard at PDR. Apparently a trend from last year at that location continues. The security manager indicated to one owner that 2013 saw 12 outboards stolen, 0 recovered. Thus far in 2014 7 more have gone missing, with 3 recovered from inside the yard. Most recently there were 2 stolen during the time-frame of TS Bertha, 0 recovered. One unfortunate owner has been victimized twice – his Yamaha 15 HP outboard stolen from the yard shop while it was in for repair in early 2013, and then a second outboard stolen in early August 2014 from his stored yacht, even though it was securely locked with a full bar type lock. PDR management has indicated they have “improved procedures” but not described how. Owners in the recent events were informed by their hired minders, so if you have a boat stored at PDR contact your minder and/or PDR Boatyard/Marina management to understand if you may have also been affected.
