Nos4r2 - Cheers, yes I agree with your assessment of them, I hope that my actions have now rendered the radio useless, as they hopefully will never be able to change the MMSI.

Dave - Thanks for that, are you sure you didn't steal it just so I had to buy another one from Boat Care?

Brooksy - Thanks as well, maybe I'll now buy an Icom . I'll see you at the boat show (Stalking you as ever!!!) may even try and bring the rib down.

Tim - Yes, told Ofcom. They say they won't issue me a new MMSI, I'm in discussion with them.

Biggles - Yup - at least if they're sinking and they put out a Distress Alert it will contain their position!

Hightower - The yard belongs to a local Sailing Club, all of whose members are highly respectable pillars of the community! No signs of forced entry, however it is relatively easy to get in from the sea facing flood wall. The members of the sailing club all know about the theft, and many are making a point of visiting the yard as often as they can (especially if returning late at night) to increase the presence there.

Ian - Yes, RibNet is cracking. You just know that if any RibNetter had a boat stolen, others would certainly put themselves out to keep it in sight if they saw it on the water. It can be a big family, but no Rogue Wave, you can't be my daddy...

Since my post when I got back from the Rib I've been down to it in Daylight. It turns out they did take the GPS, and the GPS antenna (but not the depth transducer - perhaps they knew it was broken???) a handheld radio, and a couple of lifejackets. Bit of a bummer really. The Insurance company are being quite helpful, however it's quite hard to value a Lowrance LCX-M15 Sounder/Plotter as it is no longer available. We'll see what the resolution is, and what my increased premiums etc are.

Cheers all for your support!

Be good to see you as always, just don't bring that dodgy bloke with you, you know the one who does the boat cleaning!!

I hope you get it sorted soon.
I think a nice new M505 would look great on your boat

Lets hope the feckers are dumb enough to try and get it re-progged and they get caught.

Best regards

I'll bear that in mind next time!

Is it a pre requisite to only sink the boat if you bought it full of holes??!?

Surely there's so many knobs around your yard you could just retrofit?
