Stolen engine

Lookout the engine thieves are about, we had a Verado 300 stolen off a Cougar R8 Rib over the weekend, looks like they came in and left by water as a vehicle was stopping the Rib from being moved from its waterside location, the feckers cut all the steering and electrical connections in the process

Pete @ Cougar

Not the only thing to have gone walk about in the area ...........little twats - was it on land ? , then they got the motor off & away on the water ?

Can see there have been a Ribeye taken from Warsash & another in Swanage in last few weeks

Going on ' Stolen Boats' site I assume?

Shit Not exactly the type of thing you stick under your arm (over 250kgs?) and walk away with. Any idea how the hell they got it off your boat and into theirs?

What a bugger.

I was sat in traffic on the A27 bridge over the hamble watching what I presume is the boat get washed down whilst hanging off the crane on Friday aternoon, and thought how nice the two 300 Verados looked.

Same way they take away a 250kg Harley Davidson bike around here, show up with 4-6 guys and pick it up then carried away.

Yes but an outboard ia a very awkward shape to carry - 80% of the weight is in the powerhead which is all curved and not very grabbable!!!

Not that a Harley is that easy to grab hold of Codders...but you're right...how the hell do you lift 250kgs of unhelpfully balanced ironmongery off the back of a transom, carry it to the waters edge and lower it, gently, into another boat?

Maybe, just maybe, at that same waters edge, there's a boat lying submerged with a big hole in its hull and four blokes drowned with their arms still wrapped around the engine? Scumbags

Be nice turn out wouldn't it?

Thinking about it. If there is enough room.
2 good sized blokes either side of the motor,lift it down on to a board. Drag the board with rope to the waters edge. Lift onto boat and off you pop.
