STOLEN predator 5.4 rib with suzuki DF90

Hi

just to inform that my RIB "TINY DANCER" was stolen from driveway Titchfield last night, any sightings or information please let me or Hampshire police know.

I am totally gutted as it has been kept on my driveway for 4 years with no bother.

See attached pictures

Gutted for you! I keep mine on my drive too.

Have you put it on StolenBoats.org.uk :: Free directory of Stolen Boats :: Boat Insurance :: Marine Security It's linked to the Police Operation Kraken, with lots of police forces and insurers linked to it.

I hope you get it back.

Check the 'old' Wanted ads in your area. It could have been stolen in order to supply.

Check the new For Sale ads.

Sometimes criminals stupidity is their own undoing.

Bloody Scum!

Very worrying for me as I keep my RIB at home and live near Titchfield too. Do you have a gut feeling as to whether these scum might have been local opportunists or professionals?

Any information you can give us about how they got around your security measures, might help others defend against getting theirs nicked?

I'll keep an eye out but pretty sure they'll be miles away by now. I must say I'm feeling pretty vulnerable!

Yeah, I'm only 12 ish miles away and keep mine on the drive too.

Obviously we'll all keep our eyes peeled in case it's been taken by a "dumb" local thief who keeps it or tries to sell it local, but there's every chance it's been taken to order by a "higher class" of thief. Either way they are low-life scumbags who've taken someone's pride and joy!
