Absolute bummer, and after you & Jasper spent all that time rewiring and re-engining this Spring.

Everyone keep their eyes peeled. It's quite a distinctive boat...

The boat was indeed stolen on the trailer. The trailer had a "cover" type hitchlock, and a wheelclamp.

Stolen Scorpion

Hi all of you out there,

First thank you for all your messages,yes both I ,Stuart and Jasper are gutted. Would like to see our rib again unharmed,dont think there is much chance of that though,I recon it has gone abroad, but please dont stop looking you newer know!! Stuart will finally be back home tomorrow and I'm sure he will have something to say to all of you (dont he always). Just to put things straight the scorpion were sitting on its trailer ready for a power boat course this weekend with all the kit onboard, liferaft flare pots anchor and the like. The trailer was fitted with a heavy duty wheel clamp and a tow hitch lock, did not stop them though, and I have the keys!! Pehaps this should also be a warning to all the rest of you, it was not enough to stop the theft. I think the sooner somebody comes up with a propper tracking device for boats that is not easy to disable the better,I for one would be out there tracking them with my baseball bat. ROUGE WAVE'S MISSUES

Mr & Mrs Wave

Sorry to hear of your loss _arstards

I know its to late in your case but
you probably havent been following the
insdent on the island of the missing tree ferns from ventnor gardens
on the island which were stolen & then returned when the theves herd that thay had chips or stints planted in them by the local vets
very small and not to costly I think my daughter payed about 40 to have a horse done
My point is if you can fit them to animals & plants why not boats or has some
bright spark thought of this befor
