honda 50 hp 4 stroke stolen

hi all a quick word of warning to all with boats with outbords in the north wales area ,i had my honda 50hp 4 stroke stolen last week along with 2 other outboards,(a suzuki 90 and a marina 75) they simply bolt cropped the stern lock off,chopped through the steering cable removed the control box and unmounted the engine. the police told me they are having a huge amount of similar reported incidents in and around wales, our boats are within a secure boatyard fitted with all sorts of anti theft devices and cctv which they covered with prop bags, it is believed to be one gang and are working a large area please please please be warned!!!!
i am now looking for a new engine, in particular an etec 60 evinrude or if any one has other ideas to push a brig 450 falcon max hp 60 and max weight 112kg or if you know of anything for sale i would be interested
thanks
Andy

May be wrong but there was a Honda 50 on eBay last week from Pembroke that was for sale with no controls and the seller knew nothing about it. Always makes me a little suspicious. PM me for more details as I don't think it's fair to link in open as it may be completely genuine

Would you spot your motor from pics ?

Sorry to hear that Andy, just as a matter of interest, who is responsible for cover of your engine is it the boat storage yard or your own insurance ?

Does that mean then, that their own insurance does not cover your boat for theft whilst being paid to store on there premises. Sorry if it seems a silly question but it is something that I have always wondered when storing ribs on secure premises, who is responsible etc.
