STOLEN Trailer and BOAT(S) ALERT ****** RECOVERED ******

Post by Bill CNC » Tue Feb 10, 2015 3:37 pm

Hello Everyone,


*** RECOVERED ***

Just making an announcement to watch out for some stolen boats and a trailer in the SoCal (probably still) area. It happened on 2-7-15 in the middle of the night. Any info would be appreciated, ...

Aww man, that's terrible. Who would think stealing something so unique and easily identified would be a good idea anyway?

I am in Corona Ca I travel quite a bit in my service truck and I got my eyes peeled looking. I hope you recover these.

Hey All,

*** RECOVERED ***

The boats and trailer have been recovered. only the kill switches, 1 fuel tank and a Tiny Tack where missing.

I was called by the local PD at 12:30 am last night and was asked If I wanted to come get them, ... sure enough abandoned on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere.

Thanks for keeping a look-out
Regards
Bill

I'm glad the loose is minimal. :) The things they took sound like you may have met them and they knew exactly what they were after.

I think these where tweakers or similar.

The Tiny Tack only has a life span of 5 years, it had one left and they cut the wires a foot or so from the unit and requires the same type of wire to replace it. The tank in the white boat was old and about to split and the kill switches can be bought for $10.00 pretty much anywhere.

All he hardware was still on the boats. All the Spartan's hardware is from Machined Components and is worth a pretty penny. The Deadman Throttles are easily worth more than $100 each.

I think they decided it was going to be a lot harder to use or sell these than they originally thought, or it was that I still had the removable Carbon Fiber floor board to the Spartan under my bed, ... You decide. :wink:
