10 Ft Walker Bay dinghy with Suzuki 9.9 4S outboard
Locked
In the water but locked Walker Bay dinghy with 9.9 Suzuki 4S outboard was stolen overnight from an occupied yacht in Cienfuegos, Cuba. Reported to the local authorities. CSSN UPDATE: A First Hand report has been received and provides the following additional information: “During the night our dinghy, a 10ft Walker Bay Ultra Light with Suzuki 9.9 4 stroke outboard was stolen. Dinghy was in the water but locked to the stern with a 1/4 inch steel cable. At approximately 7:00am we discovered the dinghy missing. The cable had been cut clean through. Local police and the marina were informed immediately. The police wanted a sample of the cable but could not cut it with their wire cutters so we gave them what was left. The investigation is ongoing but today they informed us the dinghy has likely been scrapped and the outboard stripped for parts already. This happened 100 meters off the marina docks. The authorities have been very supportive and have been keeping us updated twice a day on the status of the investigation.”

During the night, police stopped/apprehended a suspect carrying suspicious items in his car. They posted pictures of the items along with a photo of the suspect and his driver's license on the Luperon Cruisers Facebook page. The items were not immediately recognized so a search was made of unoccupied yachts. A caretaker of a sailboat whose owner was away discovered that the locked yacht had been broken into and ransacked and identified the items as belonging to that boat. Charges were filed by the caretaker on the owners behalf, and the items were returned to the yacht.

To enhance the security on the water the Navy comandante from Puerto Plata reinstated a patrol boat in Luperon bay with immediate effect. Initially, provisional equipment will be used, but a bigger patrol boat in association with a small patrol boat are expected. Locally, the Navy (call name: Richard) can be reached on VHF channel 68 24/7 in case of emergency. The National Police indicated that a 911-call will activate the patrols around the bay at all times.

Assault
cash and jewelry
Not Locked
Owners of a yacht berthed on the outside dock at Marina Zar Par awakened to a masked intruder at their bedside. He spoke only Spanish (which they understood) smelled of alcohol and was dripping wet. He had gained entry thru the unlocked companionway.

A brief struggle ensued, he demanded cash and jewelry, which was freely given. The intruder tied both crew up holding a knife to the woman’s neck. He held his hand roughly against her mouth to silence her causing minor injuries, which were later treated by a doctor. After he departed, the crew managed to untie themselves and reported to the Zar Par Marina Security office.

The security team provided immediate assistance by calling the police, who arrived promptly, and in gaining medical treatment for the woman. A formal report was also made to the Coast Guard the next day, and the police are investigating.

Theft
30 HP Yamaha Outboard and Dinghy
Not Locked
At 0230 owner went on deck and discovered that the dinghy painter had been cut. The thief had been very quiet, neither of his two dogs had been disturbed. He heard an outboard in the distance that sounded like his. Radio calls (68/16/09) to authorities were not answered, but another cruiser responded and helped with a search. At 0330 the dinghy, minus its 30HP outboard was found adrift off the outside beach. Tire tracks and drag marks indicated the outboard was stolen with the assistance of a vehicle. No one was on the beach at this point, including members of the Commandante’s squad who claim to patrol there from 6PM to 6AM. The next day a report was made to the police, the Commandante’s office, and on the local VHF net.

Attempted theft

A cruiser was awakened during the night by the sound of a small boat bumping against the hull. He yelled out then grabbed a spotlight and went on deck to investigate. The dinghy was on davits and locked to the yacht, but now had an empty canoe tied to its bow. The boat and surrounding area were searched with lights, no one was found, and nothing was missing. The following morning the Navy stopped by to retrieve the canoe and inform the cruiser that they had picked up a soaking wet man onshore the previous night. Apparently the thief was looking for an outboard/dinghy to steal and he was interrupted, and jumped into the water and swam to shore rather than risk a confrontation. A report was made to the Port Captain.

Left boat in the morning returned in the evening. Apparently they were mainly looking for money and credit cards that were not on board. It appeared that they were in a hurry and did not have many hands to take other stuff. It's very likely they just swam to the boat either from the beach or from the island.

An experienced and well traveled female single hander was anchored offshore Petit Paradise for about a week, and had been befriended by the locals. On May 11, she had just gone to sleep at around 9PM when she was boarded, viciously attacked, and robbed by 3 armed men who tied her up, beat her, and finally left when they became nervous about being discovered. She later made her way to the village, sought and received assistance and was treated at the medical clinic. Reports were made to the local police, French Embassy, Belgian Consul, and local judge. She has shared a detailed description of the event and it is published on the Noonsite Piracy pages, and can be viewed here http://www.noonsite.com/Countries/Haiti/haiti-grand-goave-petit-paradis-night-time-robbery-and-violent-attack-2013-may-2015 CSSN NOTE : This is the THIRD violent assault against a cruiser reported from Haiti this year.

A French couple and their children had anchored overnight between Corail and Pestel, Haiti. At 3 AM they were boarded by 12 men armed with machine guns and machetes. The leader of the group was in uniform. The boat was "inspected" for 2.5 hours, rummaging drawers, lockers, etc. The roller furling and main sheet were deliberately damaged. The men were agressive, with much yelling and arm waving, but the crew cooperated. They forced the boat to go 2 miles back to Corial at first light after taking all the cash on board ($1000), laptops and some other gear from the captain . The official then "allowed" the boat to depart to go onward to Pestel, Haiti the next planned stop. It is unlikely a police report was made.

There have been 5 thefts reported to CSSN in Esperanza so far in 2017, and police indicated there were several other (not reported to CSSN) dinghy/outboard thefts as well. Thieves operating in Esperanza are vigilant and well prepared, using large bolt cutters on well secured dinghies and trailers when required.

The dinghy was recovered the next morning swamped near the beach, minus the outboard which had been securely locked with a solid bar across the transom clamps.

Dinghy/outboard, dinghy minus outboard later recovered

At approximately 8 PM cruisers returned to the dinghy dock on the old pier in Esperanza, and discovered their dinghy/outboard had been stolen. The dinghy was chained to the dock with 3/8” stainless steel chain and locked with a case-hardened lock, the outboard engine was similarly chained and locked to the dinghy.

The dinghy minus the outboard was found just off the beach to the east of the dock with both chains and one of the locks cut with a bolt cutter. A police report was made and victims were informed by the local police that this was the 4th motor theft this week.

The owners indicate the police took little interest in assessing the situation - writing down little, looking at the dinghy or the area where it was left and they took no photos. The owners believe that well prepared theives with large bolt cutters are actively operating in the area and advise extra precautions.
