Well done!

Is this your boat? Gardai seeking to re-unite ten stolen boats with rightful owners - Independent.ie

Maybe pay for view overseas:

Gardaí are attempting to find the rightful owners of various items of marine equipment which they recovered during searches in Portlaoise on Wednesday 24th and Thursday 25th June.

The property, worth approximately €150,000, was retrieved during an ongoing investigation into the theft of boat engines in the midlands.
74 outboard engines, 10 boats, 8 boat trailers, 1 caravan, 8 trailers and 2 generators were recovered.
Detective Sergeant John Healy of Portlaoise Garda station said "As we are in a central location, we feel that the property could belong to people countrywide, so we're asking everyone from Killybegs to Castletownbere to look at the photos."
Gardaí have managed to reunite one of the engines with its owner.
Pictures of the items are available on the Gardaí's Facebook and Flickr pages.
People who believe their stolen goods are on the list are asked to view the images, email portlaoise.property@garda.ie or to phone 057 8674100 for further information.

Ah! I think the cops call that the "estimated street value" - as one guy once said - they must have a different dealer....
