Thanks for the support guys.

The way it's been done, definitely looks like people who really knew what they were doing. Looks like they completely ignored a brand new engine fitted to a new rib, and took the older ones that don't have the same level of electronic security codes.

I would have thought the engines would be on the mainland or even elsewhere by now

Thanks Whisper... As you say, we really try and look after our boat.

I'm not sure whether I was more upset by the fact they stole the engine, or the fact they got on the boat with dirty muddy shoes

So was it in the water or on land, I would have thought that this is quite unusual for the island?

It was on its trailer.

It normally lives safely outside the house, and was only there being measured/fitted for a new boat cover. Ironically they stole the old cover as well, maybe to cover the engines in their vehicle.

And yes.... Took everyone by surprise, definitely not something that happens on the Island. In fact I don't think there has EVER been such a theft on the Island. Just my bloody luck for our boat to be in the wrong place at the wrong time

I was in Yarmouth marina overnight on the 12th and the security gate giving access to the pontoons was wide open all day and night, so anyone could gain access to all the boats under cover of darkness.

Sorry to hear this - scumbags! Make sure you register these engines on stolen boats. com.

There was a small spate 4 years or so ago in Bembridge where several big engines were stolen by a well organised team.

Did they freeze the outboard lock off or just cut it?
