Here is who you can blame for your boat insurance being so high in FL:

1. The owners of Netcycle Trading in Doral, FL (Miami) Nadia Esperanza Ledesma and her husband Carlos Orlando Ledesma.
2. Roberto Marrero-Cisneros who supplied fake serial numbers
3. Osmani Valdivia Perez of Leigh Acres, FL (Lee County) who financed it all.
4. Osmani's nephew Tomas Vale Valdivia in Mexico and also helped finance it and was previously arrested for smuggling migrants.

They were responsible for stealing and shipping about 600 outboard motors from Florida to Mexico between 2015-2018.

"The defendants face up to five years in prison at their sentencings in May before U.S. District Judge Robert Scola, and must pay forfeiture penalties totaling between $50,000 and $120,000 each to the U.S. government."

The punishment... "up to 5 years and a fine between $50K and $120K" for stealing and exporting motors valued between $9.5M and $25M.

Public hangings should be brought back and a lot of this behavior would cease.

Those Miami boys have been coming over to the west coast since the 80's stealing outboards, one group gets arrested and another one fills the void. Once they broke into a marina, use the marinas fork lift to load crates of outboards into a cargo truck, and on the way out hooked up to a new boat on a trailer and even stole the guard dog!
Not the dog..😂😂
