Zodiac 420 Pro - 1979 Evinrude 55 hp - San Francisco - Stolen: 8 Nov 2015

Please be on the lookout and call me if you've seen it.

It is a red 14.5 foot Zodiac Pro 420 with a 55 HP Evinrude Engine. It was on a galvanized trailer whose wheel was locked to the trailer frame with a 3/4' diameter cable lock and coupler lock. They drug it down the street and then I don't know how they got it away after that (maybe got a torch for the locks?).

I've worked on the boat to get it up and going for the last year. Was going to sea-trial it with new engine today.

Please call me at show contact info if you heard it being dragged away or have seen it on any online sale sites.

Note: the picture of the boat shows a silver outboard. The one I had recently installed was a 1976 55 HP Evinrude with factory paint and decals (Champagne gold with and red and blue decals).1979 Zodiac 420 Pro with Zodiac Red PVC Tube Set (installed 2013)
