Underhill is a rural suburb.
Lot of musicians, but also a lot of odd balls.

When most people think "lake" they aren't thinking 124 miles long like Champlain is.  There are a gazillion places to hide a stolen boat.

I live 1,000 feet from lake Lanier, which is "only" 20something miles long.  There are plenty of places to hide stolen boats there as well.

/Lots of Ozark filming is/was done there

Weird how when someone steals a rich persons yacht multiple law enforcement agencies jump right on it, including a farking federal agency dispatching a helicopter to aid the search, but when us plebs report a stolen car the police will grudgingly write a report so we can file with insurance like they're doing some sort of major favor.

Can anyone confirm Michael McDonald's whereabouts at the time of the incident?

From the article, it sounds like a inside job/falling out between the owner and the guy he had hired to operate/maintain/charter it for him.

Police say the operator, Robert Morris, 56, was arrested on charges of operating without the owner's consent and possession of stolen property.

My bet is that the owner had said if we don't have a charter its fine for you to use it at some point.  Owner or family member went to use on short notice and Morris was taking advantage.

The whole thing kinda smells of rich local in an argument with a senior employee who took some liberties and butthurt employer leaned on law enforcement.

Might just be because I have seen one of the "big fish" in my small town do something similar a fairly often times.

Kind of have been screwed over by the same "big fish".

If you can afford a million dollar yacht, you can afford a replacement.

Just how big does a boat need to be to be considered a yacht?

Generally any vessel (ship/boat/etc) with a berthing compartment and head over 10 meters (33 feet) is considered a yacht.

Agreed seeing that Rouses Point is RIGHT on the US/Canada border in NY.  The guy motored south away from the border.  Heck of a border run.

Is 48' really a yacht?  Maybe more like a McYacht.

Rouses Point.   A village in decline.  Pharmaceutical plant closed, border closed.  How bad is it?  Bars are closing.
