Stolen 40hp 4 stroke mercury long shaft PTT.

Stolen from my driveway in southampton. I had only just got the motor and fitted it to my searider. Frustratingly I have lots of pictures but no serial number as it was so new to me. Police informed but say given no engine number recovery unlikely. The boat is 3rd party insured only!

If anyone hears or sees anything I would appreciate a heads up, but realise I'm basically stuffed.

I've just had one theft in my life... a 3mth old contractors size trailer. It wasn't just the trailer loss but the anger that folks had been on my property and managed to take it. I spend quite a few nights after irrationally looking out of a crack in the curtains until about 2am in case they came back for other things.

Every sympathy, it's very frustrating.

Worth keeping an eye out for it for sale online - canít be many of an exact year and model for sale each time. Probably keep an eye on Gumtree and the like. Canít imagine they would have travelled to the area just for the engine so perhaps itíll appear for sale in your region.

Iíve had a car stolen before and I remember the feeling - itís awful! I wish you the best of luck in finding it!

Did you not get the serial number from a dealer or the other person you bought it from
