A remarkable coincidence indeed! As Jono says, I was speaking to a guy in the fuel station at the exit to le Shuttle in Calais about midday on Tuesday 13th May. He was towing a Ribeye 650/Yamaha 150 4-stroke with a silver Nissan Navara. However, he did claim to work for Ribeye UK, his truck had a www.ribeye.co.uk sticker on the side and the RIB/engine/trailer appeared to be brand new. He said he was delivering it to Monaco for a client who intended to use it as a tender for a superyacht! He was quite a well spoken chap and certainly didn't appear to be dodgy, but there again neither did Howard Marks

The guy in Calais was definitely a Ribeye staff member, delivering a boat to Monaco. I am also told the police have found this craft and also the thieves!!! Hope this is correct regarding boat found.

I believe it has been recovered, certainly the one that was taken from it's mooring at Itchenor has been and I think this is the same one.
