Ireland's Stolen Outboards!!!
Just a quick note to everyone on this side of the pond.
Just under two weeks ago a bunch of Wan**rs broke into my yard at 3am and lifted off four engines BY HAND.
Nothing to strange there but the lightest of these engines was 180kg up to 250kg.
Anyways a neighbour of mine came across them by chance and scared them off.
We got all the engines, thank god, but three other yards around the country have been hit in the last two weeks and the cops are totally useless.
It seems to be the same gang all the time, large bolt cutters for the cables and a gun of some kind just to undo the bolts, nice and neat!
My point being, please make sure your outboards are well out of sight, and if you don't have any outboard lock of some kind your insurance will not pay up.
I know this is a common problem but please be careful out there.
