Combat Theft

With over 500 members we can have a really efficient Boat Watch. That's over 500 pairs of eyes who can email us as well as Facebookers, Tweeters and all their contacts. We can really get suspicious behaviour or reports of thefts to a very big audience very very quickly. So just fill in the form with anything worrying you and we will alert all members straightaway. We've noticed a big drop in thefts since we started this virtual Boat Watch. Let's try and eliminate them altogether!
