ribnet massive neighbour advice needed

My sr lives under a tarp on my drive, next to my fence, which has my neighbours drive the other side. My neighbour smokes.....I don't.

Just been out to sr to do general things....so take the tarp off...and found...fag ends on the boat.

It's not the first time.....first time I let it go..even though the tarp had hole burnt in it...

Do I let it go again, what's best approach to neighbour? Am I right or wrong to be angry?

You have definitely gotta go and talk to him!! It is criminal damage and there is evidence with DNA! Keep it and put it in a bag!!
Go talk to him, if he's ok and receptive/apologetic then leave it at that. If not I'd be going to the cops!

Politely point out that petrol vapours may have built up under the tarp...

I would go and see him as its total lack of respect for you and things you own.

If he carries on the damage could be worse such as damaged tubes or even a fire if you have fuel on board!

More holes in burnt in tarp.

I'm tempted to move the boat and burn the fence panel ......to show what he's doing could be bad......our is that ott? (Need new fence panels anyway!)

I'm having a coffee before I politely knock his door...
