Another Rib gone, southampton area

Its getting rather crazy the number of ribs going missing in the southampton, hamble area.

The common thread apart from general area seems to be they are all being stolen on their trailers. Drystacks are the answer ?

Catagory: RIB
Make/Model: Nautica Ica
Craft Length: 4.26m
HIN/Serial No: HIN No:USPTJ13733L798
Datatag:
Date theft reported: 28 Apr 2011
Theft Location: Pettinger Gardens, Southampton, Hampshire
Description: White Nautica Inca RIB has been stolen from the carpark at the above location. The RIB has a Mercury Jetdrive 2 stroke 90hp inboard engine fitted.

Nicked ribs

Couple of weeks ago i counted 18 identical ribs heading north up the dual carraigeway as i was heading south,all in less than 15 minutes,if i was a copper i would have stopped them for a look see,then again i would have been a scouse plod,not a southern one,maybe 18 ribs isnt strange to them.Chif big wig down there should recieve your emails in joint complaint,every boat being towed gets a mandatory pull,would only take them a couple of minutes.Looks like somebdy somewhere is cleaning up to order.

So using your theory I'd need a week to get to Cornwall, if stopped by every copper on the way

RIBase
I agree with BorisTheBold Dry Stack is the answer! - Well I would wouldn't I?

Seriously though, leaving a Rib on a trailer with little protection is a scary prospect - security on boats and trailers is so "third world"!

Once you had been pulled you would automatically be logged nationwide via your tow vehicle reg,.right docs with you free to go,it only takes seconds in this day and age and easily linked to every constabulary in the u.k.If you are all getting your boats purloined down south email the big wig himself,they like crusades,just had a big one up here in oswestry,crackin down on cannabis farms and other drug related issues,dawn raids,20 vans involved,loads of overtime,pictures in the paper,they like to be seen to be doing their job.All start harrassing the chief constable,get your crackdown,hopefully get your boats back.Bet you a pound to a penny its the same crew all the time,going in containers.ALEX MARSHALL is the guy you all need to start winging to,enougth of you do it he will listen.
