Indeed very close to home! In fact that boat used to be Dry Stacked with us here at KB Boat Park. As to how they nicked it - I guess it's just down to the fact that no matter how good your security is, it can always be compromised.

We like to think our security is good, but we often have to balance it with presenting a "customer friendly" environment and I guess other boat storage places have the same problem. However, as a Dry Stack we don't have many boats sitting on trailers which probably puts would be thieves off.

Hope they find the Rib, I'll certainly inform all our customers to look out for it - although I guess it's probably no longer around these parts!!!
