Dave- The Boat Owner

Pompton Lakes, NJ

Thanks to the other boat owners who saw these "punks" and called the police and the New Hamburg fire company volunteers who were quick to respond to extinguish the fire. This could have been a major disaster had the wind been stronger. The entire marina could have burned up. I will never understand what possesses someone to intentionally destroy property for "fun". It will never change until the parents of kids like this are held accountable for the actions of their kids. Although I had some insurance, it doesn't begin to cover all the loss. This was our Summer R&R, our enjoyment not to mention the time and money spent taking care of our boat.
