Yep good news, but goes against what marine police told us that the thieves were from Eastern Europe. These were local and had taken many expensive boats and kit. I bet someone on here suffered at their hands

Probably this one. D'you think it's an inflated price for an inflated boat?

Begs the question what on earth were they going to do with such high value (and unique) boats. It's not like they could have stuck them on eBay is it

Most of this stuff either gets broken down for their component parts which are easier to move on and/or gets stolen to order and shipped abroad.

I'm sure the punishment won't fit the crime.

I wonder if was the same pair I had heard about being arrested at Ichen Marine about a month ago (was told they were Polish too). The police think my engines ended up in Poland.

No, these lads were Proper British Scumbags, not cheap foreign imports...
