Boats Damaged at Carols Wharf,
between 10pm Saturday night and 7:30pm Sunday morning 7 boats were
deliberately sunk at Carols wharf.
methodically moved from boat to boat, removed the bungs and watched
them sink. It is very likely that this was done around 3am when the
tide would have been low enough for the idiot to walk from boat to boat
without getting too wet.
Due to some quick thinking and yet
another powerful demonstration of Island camaraderie all the
boats were pulled to the shore and most outboards were saved.
Unfortunately one was not retrievable and that family now has no means
to commute to work or day care and will now be seriously
inconvenienced, incur ferry and water taxi costs they cannot
afford and struggle to fund a replacement outboard.
children of that family are very upset and keep asking their father why
the bad man sank their boat. Their father doesn’t know how to answer
Every boat was damaged in some way and expensive items such as
lifejackets, oars and batteries were lost.
were a number of parties on the Island on Saturday night and it may
have been possible that a visitor to the island may have thought this
hilarious. It beggars belief that one of our own would do something
I would urge
who heard or saw anything suspicious at Carols wharf late Saturday
night or very early Sunday morning to contact the Water Police on 9910
7899 and let them know what you heard or saw. The smallest
of information might be useful.
If, however, you
are responsible or involved in any way it would be best for you to
contact the Water Police immediately and own up before you were
discovered. There are 7 very angry families who would pay almost any
price to get their hands on you.
