Urgent Request from Dorset Police Marine Unit

Not a rib, but...

Subject: Urgent Dorset Police Marine Section Request

Dorset police have arrested a male in possession of a :

Dell Quay Dory 13 boat on FLETCHER single axled trailer with a brand new looking EVINRUDE engine fitted which was being towed by a van on false number plates at 2am in Christchurch a few days ago

The boat is almost certainly stolen from the Dorset Area, possibly Christchurch or Poole area's. Serial numbers etc are on the engine.

We really need to find out where this boat comes from and who owns it.

Please circulate far and wide to help us try and find the loser as soon as possible please.

Any information, please contact Dorset Police on 01202 222222 and quote crime number C:11:24215

This is a perfect example where property marking such as SelectaDNA could have been used, and we would now be contacting the owner to inform them that a person has been arrested with their boat!
