Stolen Recovered Outboards

Hi all, wanted to pick your collective brains regarding stolen recovered kit.......

I was recently offered a stolen (with keys) recovered XC90 as a replacement for my Jeep......was tempted as it was a nice clean low mileage one which hadn't any apparent damage as a result of theft (except removal of trim to try and find a Tracker I guess) not a problem to me regarding resale etc as I tend to use my 4x4's for a number of years /miles, by which time they have lost most of their value anyway. As much as i liked the volvo it isn't the right car for me /the job........will probably run the Jeep for another year and change the car for a 4 door (baby seat becoming a pain).

However, got me thinking about stolen recovered boats and in particular outboards...

Sadly, there often seem to be outboards getting stolen....

My question is; do they come up for sale when recovered /if recovered post pay out by ins company and if so, does anyone know where they turn up for sale? Unlike cars I guess that outboards probably don't often get used by the thieves so there would be fewer issues with abuse etc?

Any guidance appreciated.

Dan

You won't find a lot-Boatwrecks (the most comprehensive site there) hasn't been updated for at least a year.
