Looe Boat Owners Association was formed in 2002 and soon became well established in the town and surrounding area. Then, after a series of boat related crimes in 2007 the club started Looe Boat Watch, formed after consultation and in partnership with Devon and Cornwall Police. Since its formation Looe Boat Watch has successfully contributed towards virtually eliminating boat related crime in Looe. Looe Boat Watch is fully supported by Looe Harbour Commissioners, Cornwall County Council and boating businesses within Looe and we have over 20 Boat Watch warning signs all around the Harbour and the river. Occasional patrols also take place, especially during busy periods.
