Raid at Bembridge Harbour

Iv'e just had a call from Bembridge Outboards to let me know that my rib along with a number of others were stolen last night from the harbour at Bembridge. Apparently police have found one on Hayling Island.
Mine is a new Avon 560, blue tubes, Double A-Frame, with a 90 optimax saltwater on the back. I will post details of numbers and a picture etc. once know more. I'm not sure what time the tide was last night, but this looks to have been a well planned hit!
Having had a family bereavement this week, I could have done without this....please keep an eye open and an ear to the ground.

Nick

Sorry to hear about your loss(es), Nick. I will also keep an eye peeled during my patrol in Pompy Harbour on Sunday morning. Full details of boat would be appreciated before then if poss.

I will be down in Seaview (with RIB in Bembridge??????) at the end on the month for a couple of weeks - perhaps a beer in The Old Fort could be arranged.

Looks like we may have located mine and others....Hayling Is / Langstone Harbour Area...apparently 2 arrests....attempted escape of 2 others in one of 6 ribs stolen! police helicopter tracking remaining two over some marshes after they ditched one of the bigger ribs stolen.

I wish I had been there to see it all! sounds like a bungled Italian Job with Ribs!

I'll let you know the outcome.....cheers to all who replied.

Nick

Get caught using it (or with the "forbidden channels" in it's memory) and you're in deep kak
