    Sorry to hear of the theft problems at Eling. The Ashlett Sailing Club down river used to suffer similar problems but installed a boat alarm system. Each boat (that could afford it) fitted a radio transmitter (cost £85 each) so in the event of a break in the alarm is sounded in the club house and the system autodials a security company. The clubhouse etc are also alarmed, new security fences were built and a camera system (linked to the internet) was installed. All of this has cost a lot of money but has reduced the crime rate considerably. Contact the Ashlett Sailing club for more information.

    not true, unfortunately - some recent break-ins to Marchwood YC boats moored at Bury - same pattern, broken into via forehatch.

    Default Ashlett "break-ins"

    Seems that during the same week, Eling, Marchwood and Ashlett were attacked.
    Three boats, none with alarms, had equipment stolen in Ashlett Creek.

    Unhappy Boat thieves Southampton

    Just discovered my boat broken into at Cracknore Hard - between 31st October and 13th November. Apparently a boat nearby was also burgled and several at Marchwood. i've only just discovered it because I managed to go sailing three weeks ago without noticing it! Lockers were opened etc. but I had assumed they'd burst open in recent storms. Anyway I have lost my tools (expensive) - my flares (expensive)-and loads of annoying things that must be completely useless to thieves including engine injector spares etc. - fan belt -impeller - electrical spares fuses- knife - lanterns - voltmeter - head torch. Only ancient electronics and vhf on the boat which they didn't bother with. ( I take my GPS home ). Who are these people? What do they do with the stolen items? The returns on all this stuff must be minimal- while the inconvenience to me colossal. Anyway I'll report it tomorrow (Hythe police station closed on Sundays!)
