looks like we all agree that there is no way a fully pressurized DIN valve could have come loose. not even with a crescent wrench. you would strip the threads first, and even then it still wouldnt come off.
but the rocking of the boat could do wonders to unpressurize one that has been turned off, and then unscrew it.
and a slippery handed thief could too.
this is sort of a corrolary to Robert Frost's "the best laid plans of mice and men aft gehn aglei."
