Right, bit of an update from over the weekend (the plod appear to be really doing the business on this!)

Boat was stolen between 2.00 and 2.30pm on Thursday. The maroon 4x4 was still involved (seen scouting on Tuesday and in attendance Thursday but the boat was driven off behind a white van.

The most frustrating/amusing part of the tale is that the thieving shites are going to have a real problem with the engine as they managed to forget to lift it before driving off and as a result have left numerous dents and gouges out of at least 3 roads on their way out of Chandlers Ford. This MUST have damaged the engine to a point of needing some fairly extensive repairs so please bear this in mind when looking at ads or if you have spares for sale and get requests.

Thanks to everyone for their assistance. I know my friend is chuffed with the response and just hoping that it all leads to a good conclusion.

And finally, just to really make you smile, the insurance company are sending a loss adjuster out. I wonder what he'll make of an empty driveway........................

Any pictures, so that we know exactly what we're to keep an eye out for?! (Apart from a skegless outboard)

I've just received the "missing" poster and photo but am struggling to get it re-sized to add to this. I am off out now but will get it done on my return.

Didnt make any difference for our club boat sitting in the uni compound with a sheared wheel hub - they lifted the whole lot onto a flatbed and drove off.
