Last week when returning from the pub I noticed a torch light on the wharf. By the time I arrived who ever it was had gone and along with them my generator! I missed them by less than a minute. I looked around to see if my iminent arrival had caused them to drop the said generator, but it was nowhere to be seen.
I called the feds. They sent a dog team to scour the area to no avail.
A follow up visit an hour later from the local bobbies revealed nothing. However I did mention that there had been a spate of thefts from boats in the last few weeks, they said that they were not aware probably because people don't report small thefts. They did say that we should all report any theft no matter how small. Unless they know there is a problem they can't deal with it.
Its not what they stole that irks me its the fact that they scoped my boat and decide that I didn't need it. I might have needed it as a standby power source for my dialysis machine. I am sure if they were caught their lawyer would claim that they wern't to know I needed it so bad.
On a happy note I have had the generator for two years and in all that time I have never even been able to make it cough let alone run. So really they did me a favour, now I dont have to take it to the skip. Suckers!!!
