Martin- just realised looking at the picture the bow tube has been cut away so I am seeing the inside of the bow section ! I think it may be beyond repair - but a ' tube expert' on here may be able to give better advice & how much it may cost .

Have you replied to the wrong thread or have I missed something?

[QUOTE=Robox;304418] I think you will find that this was sarcasm and not optimism.

How dare you!

Good luck with any future developments.

Pikey bast*rds.

I've been following this thread - and it makes me sick to my stomach. Why can't the boating industry introduce some sort of licensing system, so that boats and engines for sale need associated paperwork, and proof of previous insurance (bit like proof of a no-claims bonus). Also ferry-ports should be asking for some sort of ID, especially where trailers are being hauled. I for one would not mind the inconvenience if I knew it was keeping some low-life at fook'n arms-length.

Glad I got that off my chest.

Final Report

Firstly, thanks for all your messages.

For those still on the lookout, you won't find the RIB. The hull and damaged tube were dumped in the garden of an empty property 6 miles away! It had been completely stripped of everything. Obviously easier to sell in bits.

Insurance company took just over two months to cough up, so we missed most of the summer [that we didn't have].

My thanks go to one member of the forum, who gave me invaluable assistance with the insurance claim. I won't name him, as he has been thanked personally and I am sure he doesn't want to be inundated. It just shows how valuable the forum can be.

Hope to meet some of you out there sometime.

Thanks again
Solent Ribman

But again if they want it, then it won't stand in the theiving scums way either.
There are also legal implications regarding this use of this evidence,you need to warn the crim that he will be recorded (with a sign) the sign is a very good deterrent in it's own right. A big chain is obvious, but he knows what he has to do. A camera or camera's that might catch his face will be a an additional threat to his freedom, together both measures might make the boat just too hard to nick.
