Marlin 19 - Suzuki DF140 - Newbury - Sunday 14 November 2010

My RIB as stolen on Sunday at 12:44 in Newbury Berkshire.

The RIB is quite Rare and so easy to spot because of the wings on the back.

Below are the various serial numbers for the RIB

Hull no: IT-MRB-19146-B-708 first registered 02/03/07

Engine Serial no 1400IF-783348 Suzuki DF140 four stroke outboard

Trailer Chassis no 5203 Admiral RL 1250 single axle

There is a £1k reward if anyone can find this for me before it's trashed or shipped abroad

Accurate as CCTV time stamped
They set off towards newbury from New Greenham park on A339 which is slightly south of Newbury itself
See CCTV grabs as Jeep was vehicle used to steel

stolen rib

sorry to hear of this.Any idea which way they went as they headed into newbury?Were they spotted again at all.It's easy to head for the A4/M4 or link road towards M40.A sighting near here may give a clue as to whether they took the M4 and so onto London and the channel ports or went in the other direction perhaps to stash the boat for a while until things cooled off.Don't suppose plod were any good.I have just towed my rib back from birmingham after buying it and unfortunately got lost around oxford.Came across allnight garage and stopped for directions.Only other customers at 2am were 6 policemen all drinking coffee and stuffing muffins.(they get free coffee)Not one of them wanted to know what i was doing with a large rib at that time of the morning.They hardly noticed the boat anyway and when they did it was
along the lines of that's an interesting boat mate!I'm not the most tidy looking of people either so was somewhat surprised.
I hope someone spots your boat so that you have a chance of getting it back and your insurance people treat you kindly should the boat not appear.I'll keep an eye out for you when i'm out and about.
Kind regards,Chris.

they must have known what they were coming for, not just random, have you had any work done on your house, sold a car or something else or any cold callers round lately?, any work been going on local to you, people that are not usually in your neck of the woods, if so it's a good place to start, if you're on the main road and it's parked out front this won't work
