Blimey, you'd think a bright yellow rib would be hardly inconspicuous to find. Let alone steal...... sorry for the owner. Was it stolen from a Marina?

No new details at present, but the police and insurance company may amend / update the page with more information at some point in the future.

Been found I believe.....

Broke a mooring chain and drifted out to sea... apparently the chain then tangled around a lobster pot and held the lot fast somewhere in the Irish Sea.

This however isn't fact, only what I heard from what I'd consider a reputable source.... I dare say the full story will unfold in time

Blimey, if that was the case that's one hell of a catch for the fisherman

I own that Lobster and I am claiming salvage, my Lobster who is aptly named "Lippy" towed it in on her own.

Really! there is no accounting for taste, which self respecting lobster would steal a yellow Rib
