Poor Moonfleet. Stuck waiting for warm weather and for me to return from working away she's been robbed twice. The first time they nicked the fuel can and this time the engine cover. The engine is securely bolted and padlocked in place but Mark, from the boatyard, suggests the cover was nicked to go on a stolen engine where the other owners had replaced the cover with a 'police issue' outboard cover designed to reduce outboard thefts! So .. if anyone sees an outboard for sale from some individual who doesn't know his port from starboard let the local police know. Other boats on the moorings suffered thefts and damage too so these little scroats had plenty of time to go 'messing about in boats'.
