2 RIBs stolen- both mine. Dorchester, Dorset

Hi- both my RIBs stolen over the weekend, from a farm near Dorchester, Dorset.

STOLEN DURING HOURS OF DARKNESS- FRI- SAT 19-20
5.0m Tornado Viking, orange hull, grey tubes. Double jockey consol. 50hp Yamaha 4-stroke (2001) (FT50- #450269). On a RM Trailer-, braked and tilting, built for overbars for a dinghy (but they weren't fitted).


STOLEN DURING HOURS OF DARKNESS- SAT-SUN 20-21
4.7m Humber, orange hull, blue tubes. Single jockey consol. 50hp Mariner 4-stroke (2002 50 ELPTEFI) (0T522632). On unbraked trailer, with dinghy carrying overbars.


Any help on 07920 142615 would be appreciated if you hear of anything.

Cheers, Nathan

So sorry to hear this news. An engine going missing is one thing, the whole lot, that hurts.

Will keep my eye on Poole and surrounding areas when out and about

Thanks guys, Police etc have serial numbers. As do Mariner + Yamaha, and they've said they wont make any replacement keys for the engines.

I've also emailed lots of sailing people, and the RYA- these RIBs were primarily used for safety boat/ coaching roles.

Cheers

boomer- here are pictures. I don't have any pictures of the blue Humber afloat (only owned for 4 months!). When the Tornado was stolen, the overbars were not on the trailer.

The Police have been out to where the thefts took place and had a good look around.

Hope this helps.

RIBase
Are the tubes on the blue Humber that vivid a colour in real life? It's a pretty distinctive boat if they are.

They are a little bit less shiney when not wet, and possibly a bit lighter as well, but yes, pretty distinctive. Both trailers are not excatly standard either, both designed for carrying sailing dinghies.

Very frustrating!
