We have purchased what we have been told are the best locks and chains available, but that did not work. The cameras did not stop them? To hire a guard is extremely costly and ultimately would cost the customer a lot. The St. Pete Sheriff is even considering installing there own surveillance equipment to help out, which we of course agreed too.

Watch dogs - I WISH I could...but my insurance company will not allow it. Unfortunately, even thieves have rights and if someone gets bit, we still have potential exposure to get sued! Sometime the system sucks!

Hopefully we recover the boat soon....and the boat is in good condition. I just don't want anyone to think we take this lightly and we are making every effort to protect our customers that we can.

When are you getting the dogs??? Customers boats or thiefes seems to be an easy choice, regardless of what a greedy insurance agent is telling you. I have dogs, no one will ever touch my boat without getting memories from it. Works for me and will prolly make your custyomers happy too!

It is a Michigan baot, The boat had a full cover(grey) and motor covers on it when it was taken. It has(2) 275 Verados and the boat is absolutely mint. It is on a Nextrail Trailer with aluminum mags with two spares. If I had to guess this boat is going south. This is the second boat that has been stolen from me this summer If you guys see this boat please give me a call. 989-350-8444 Thanks

...and that is the problem...America is made up of many cultures but the way the Cubans, Mexican and so forth are getting into our country is not right. The ones that come here and bring there crime as a way of living should be "lit up". The ones that come here and live off the system and keep having more kids upon kids and take advantage of this country I have a major problem with. However they grew up in a different culture and could really carless about right and wrong and how to make this country even better.

DonziFreak, if YOU can not understand that then heck yeah...go back to where you came from! My family and friends did not fight wars for your kind to come over here a F everything up! If you and your family came here the correct way and do the right things and are tax paying hard working citizens then you will have no problem with my view point!

You are the one with the racial problem buddy! I do not care if you are Cuban, Mexican, Black, White, or Asain...come to this country the correct legal way work hard, don't steal, pay taxes and do not live off the system and there is no problem. There is plenty of white trash black trash cuban and mexican trash is this country...it's not a skin color problem with me.

WTF?! You can't be for real.

One minute you're sitting there telling us that we need to respect Cubans, and then in the next breath you're calling all mexicans azzholes. What planet are you from?! You're no better than a person who doesn't like Cubans. Don't expect sympathy.

Lastly, in this particular string of thefts Cubans are responsible (as stated by lightningbay), so therefore at this moment it's the azzhole Cubans we're pissed at for these thefts.

I owned two body shops for a number of years where we serviced high priced imports. Each night we let our two Doberman's roam the yard.......we NEVER had an issue

I would try that first and foremost......
