Thanks all for the support, unfortunately found a fourth yam F30 with the bracket let go and cables cut but again the lock bolt had stopped them, I would recommend double lock bolts one on each bracket, we have been fitting the McGuard locks from Barrus and they have worked in this case. Cant say too much at this stage, but we have some leads, the police have taken this seriously and have a team working on it, they have seen several identical thefts over the past few weeks in the south. looking at the tyre marks on fresh mud they had a large single axle van - sprinter or similar and a small single axle van? they removed the gearboxes first leaving nuts and bolts and fins. No trolley marks just trainer prints. no idea how they lifted them off, transom is shoulder height and the modern motors are all rounded shapes not much to get hold of. If any of you were driving early Monday and saw a well loaded van on the road on the island near the ferry let us know. Keep you posted.
