There was an unpredicted storm that blew up all over the country. There were several boats anchored at Glover's Reef that night; all sustained some type of damage. A resort in the area also lost several cabanas. One catamaran suffered damage when the sail bag blew open, releasing the sail causing the boom to be damaged. There was also severe lightening in the area which caused a problem with a starter motor on the boat; the problem was fixed within 30 minutes.
Someone went on board the boat in Caye Caulker; the local captain chased the person off the boat when he heard a suspicious sound. The commotion of the captain yelling at the person was what woke everyone up. Some items were stolen including a laptop, the boat phone, a camera, a flashlight and binoculars.
When the clients arrived at the dock I met them and while unhappy about the theft they were overall in a good mood and had enjoyed their vacation with the exception of the missing items, and the impact of the storm on the rest of their charter.
The boat was not limping into the dock; it was still seaworthy and safe. If it wasnít we would have removed the clients from the boat. The clients were actually jovial and did not appear in any way to be traumatized.
Anyone can view the boat on dock and see the damage done, we just ask that you please do not board as it is a privately owned boat.
