It just makes you think why? Fine, steal it, but that's mindless.

Get a quote for new tubes and then go to the local paper with the cost of the damage, some one knows who did it.

Also, who ever did do it is obviously carrying a knife so that should get the police a bit more interested.....

It's a wonder given some of the mentality of people these days that it doesent happen more often ,
The old Atlantic 21 display/ publicity boat that was used by Rnli branches in the midlands for education events was vandalised a few years ago
With similar damage ,
We had some young youths blatantly trying to stab another boat once with a blunt pair of scissors even though they did no damage one of them decided to come back with a dart ,lucky one of his mates must have had a guilt feeling & forewarned us so we were ready for him when he came back .
Don't know if its jealousy , or that boaters must be different from most people & therefore make a good target ,
Another time we were just about to launch waiting at the top of the slipway when a father & young son comes up to the boat ,the father then starts to Animates/mimes with a slashing & stabbing action looking back at the rest of his family with a grin on his face
so what's his or any other young children watching going to think when they next see a boat .

I should have said "That is in Peel isn't it?".
Just been down there and noticed your boat in the Marina Park.

Have you reported it to Mike yet?

Let me know if there is anything I can do.

Bastards aren't they? I reckon it was drinkers at the Creek Inn on the corner.
Be glad when they ban all alcohol completely
