A sad story to tell, my boat had been out of the water for 12 days in Torquay.
The goood lady wife noticed the following were missing from the boat when we went back in the water.

Depth Finder x 1
Command mic for VHF x 1
Dubarry Sailing Boots x 1
Laptop x 1
Ipod x 1

So much for a secure boat yard!
The police were not interested, my insurance company were not interested.

Seems there is a lot of thieving going on around here (W country), surprised that the boatyard aren't showing any interest, even more surprised about your insurance co, have they given any reasons? I'd certainly be pursuing them hard.

Alleged Theft Torbay Seaways Boat Yard
It was quite a shock to read the comments posted on this site regarding an alleged theft of a boats contents from my boat yard at Torquay. It was more shocking to read than we had been accussed of not being interested especially considering this is the first we had heard about it.
If a theft had occurred it is normal practice to notify the owners of the business
as soon as possible and this clearly wasn't the case.
To make accusations that could damage a companies reputation that are untrue
could be deemed slanderous.
We take theft or damage of any kind very seriously and we can report that since trading from 1977 we haven't had any reports of boats or equipment been stolen from our premises.
I have spoken this morning with the owner of the boat in question and he has told me that he contacted Marine Enginnering Looe and Marina Devolpments LTD and assumed wrongly that they had spoken with me.

But why weren't the Police or your insurance company interested?
The only reason I can think of is if you left the boat open and there was no forced entry.
