Hi guys,

Firstly, I live in Australia, I should mention. Not sure how many locals there are in this forum.

This is not a suggestion that anyone here had anything to do with this, but during the night, on Wed this week, my black anodised Hobie 14 mast was cut off the trailer, destroying the shrouds. There are not many black boats, and mine was imported from South Africa, and has a warning sticker on it written in Afrikaans. Additionally, the wear marks on the mast are very distinctive, and I would be able to identify it. It has been reported to the police.

If anyone sees a suspicious looking situation, maybe an aluminium Hobie 14 with a black mast, I would very much appreciate a PM or email.

The boat was stored in my driveway, in Corlette, on Port Stephens. It must be a local, but of course its also likely someone could be from Newcastle or north.

Now I am left with trying to repair my boat at minimum cost, or scrapping it any buying another boat. Any help there would alos be appreciated.

Maybe taken for scrap value? Check / notify the local recyclers?
