Ribcraft 585 - Evinrude Ficht 150 - Fareham, Hampshire - 17 September 2008

Our Ribcraft 585 was stolen from Fareham marina this morning. It is on a Roller Coaster Trailer. The rib is white hull and has black tubes. Ribcraft and Evinrude have been given the serial numbers.

The rib has a white console cover and has Lowrance GPS and Depth. An ICOM radio is fitted.

There is a Ribcraft A-Frame with flag staff and twin VHF aerials. It has two double jockey seats and a bench seat in the back.

The starboard nav light is broken and the port one is taped up with red adhesive tape.

Please keep a look out!

I will post some pictures later today.

Really sorry to hear that Tony, hope you get it back, and soon. Have you got a pic as it would help when keeping a look out.

I'll keep a good look out on land & at sea. I wish the police could just stop any RIB seen being towed anywahere to check it out when they get a report of this sort of thing.

I dont think I know anyone who wouldn't be happy to spend 5 mins speaking to the police if it meant they helped get someones boat back.

Ironically, last time I towed it down to Cornwall, I was stopped and asked if it was mine! I didn't mind at all.

Great idea, but do they really have the time?

I understand there is a problem around Southamhton at the moment, so be careful.

Total toe rags!

That's the second RIB that has been stolen from Fairweathers/Fareham Marina

Was it being serviced?

Sorry to hear about the trouble you are having Tony.

Lee needs to be careful.

There is now no way I'd take my boat there for servicing if it needed to be left overnight.
