Ugh – I’m afraid our dinghy was stolen while we were still anchored in Sausalito last night. All we know is that we tied it up last night and when we woke up this morning it was gone. It is very unlikely that it went rogue and floated away. Just to be sure, we took the boat around the other peninsula, Tiburon, where the current would have taken it. It was not there as we suspected.
We filled out a police report with the county sheriff’s deputy who told us “not to expect getting it back”. They are real motivators. So for now we do not have a way to get to shore until further notice. Lauren B. is checking Craigslist to see if there are any for sale that would fit our needs. We’ll be replacing a 2007 Achilles 8.8′ inflatable dinghy with a 1999 4-stroke Mercury outboard engine.
On the bright side, it is another beautiful day here in California so if we are going to be stranded, might as well be on a boat!
Cheers – Lauren S.
