Ballistic RIB STOLEN

HI CHAPS

Thanks for posting the original thread David. (DGPW)

Unfortunaly we have had a RIB stolen. The boat is a Ballistic 7.8 with twin Mercury 225 Optimax's.

It was built especially for Police charter work and is a serious bit of kit.

The boat was stolen from Lymington and I last saw it on Monday afternoon, returned from being away today (Friday) and it was gone. It was behind locked gates and had a seriouse wheelclamp on it which has been bent in double, I imagine these guy's knew what they were doing.

As the boat is rather unusual I hope with a lot of hard work we can get her back, this will obviously involve a lot of research.

I will post pictures and serial numbers tommorow and any info would be great.

Call 07979 533722

Many Thanks

Stuart
