UPDATE MONDAY MAY 5: Theft victim John White told The B-Town Blog Monday night that he found his missing dinghy.

“It was tied up in front of a nearby house with a large bell mounted on two pedestals – I rang the bell but no one came,” John said. “I unloaded the giant driftwood and recovered my boat. Thanks!”

PREVIOUSLY:

Burien resident John White says his dinghy boat was stolen Sunday night around 7:40 p.m. from the beach in front of his house Forest Ledge, located just north of Eagle Landing Park.

White says the culprit appeared to be a white woman in her 50s, who loaded the boat with driftwood, hopped in, and was last seen rowing it southbound.

The fiberglass dinghy has no engine – just oars – is colored blue and has a Washington state marine license on it.

The suspect may be rowing against the current.

“I’m offering a $500 reward for the safe return of my boat,” White told The B-Town Blog.

    Option #1 Keep the drain plug in the house, not in the boat.
    Option #2 Invest in a long chain/cable with a good padlock.
    Option #3 End up missing your boat and looking for smoke.

    Always a good idea to lock it to the dock – but I hope you get it back in one piece.

      If she was a Viking headed to a funeral you will need a new boat, because that one’s ashes.
