Sorry to hear that. With bike theft they often come back after a wee while as they know you'll replace it with some shiny new stuff - I'm guessing this is the same, lightning does strike twice.

Nasher has a small "tender" he's trying to flog if you are looking for something.

So looked like this pic ( I dont have one of it as didn't have it long enough !)

Was fitted with the small plastic fold up wheels ( in grey to match the transom) . These were held on by S/S screws only so if they have removed there will be holes in the outside, but not the inside of the transom.

I doubt it will surface anywhere near me but you never know !

This was a whole differant address 10 miles away.... but yep it used to happen a huge amount in house burglary & car stereos.

I think the guys who had been doing the comunal garden in the flats may have seen it , said something in the pub etc etc.... glad I bought everything else 100% indoors though.

No real need to replace it, but was a great little boat for the rivers and near£600 quids worth with the wheels! .... I wish I'd given it away to someone rather then get it nicked...

Not again!!

Being "new" to the area it can only be someone seeing it and either having it for themselves or as you say, having a word.

Does it have any other particular markings and will keep an eye out whilst out and about, bund to be used locally

Cheers Steve - the only thing was the wheels - I seem to recall I even lined up all theslots inthe heads when I put them on ..... (or the holes that will be left if taken off)

Buggers aren't they . I thought it was a great little boat too ! Seems no matter what you do if they want it they will work out a way to gte it away.

I wonder who buys stuff when its clearly nicked ?
