Yeah, advertised without a trailer too - which it would be if it had been "mysteriously damaged somehow" (or dragged over a car!!)

Just looking on Ebay and 2 ribs just stolen appear for sale!
Recon you need to be careful if you are trying to sell one
Ha, I have just read the title of the second one although I believe it was up for sale too!

Yeah, the bottom one is the owner trying to advertise the rib in the hope someone recognises it. He's stated it's been stolen in his description.

But there are two 8/8.5m Coastlines up for sale now - one with the same photo as the OP and the other that Whisper just found.

I've just emailed the seller of the one Whisper found to see if it comes with a trailer. There's also a phone number on the advert.

The bottom one is/was mine

It was a classified for sale ad on Ebay, but I have since changed the title to Stolen as the ad still has 3 weeks to go and if some dick tries to resell it then a potential buyer may see this ad, a long shot but it all helps.

The phone number is that of Coastline Ribs at Mercury Marina.

Coastline built IIRC 4 or 5 boats of this same type in 2012/13.

It's probably one of the others.

I'm sure James is on the case though!

There are currently 5 of these boats although 4 are nearly exactly the same. We have 3 which are being put up for sale. All our boats have either teak decks or grey non slip. We also have instruments in the dash. The one Coastline are selling on eBay doesn't.

Our one is a, or was a, legitimate sale without a trailer and the pictures on eBay show the boat underway.

Unfortunately despite being clamped on a trailer and blocked in it was still nicked!

Nightmare. As with all these things we'll keep our eyes open. Fingers crossed you get it back & the insurance sorts the car out.
