Angry License Plate Thief !!!

I checked on my trailer today. I keep it in the yard of the marina where my boat is racked. Some low-life stole my plate !!! I know there's not much chance, but if anyone spots Michigan plate B092287 it's mine. Stolen from Beacon Cove Marina in Harrison Township, MI.

It's happened to me before. Now I keep the tags on with zippy ties, and take them off when I'm not using the boat. The bad thing is not only does the State of Florida not care it was stolen, they charge you to replace it.

Happened to me while in FT Lauderdale, Florida. That B*&**D even took my custom plate frame! (I am probably the only moron that puts a custom frame on a boat trailer plate! Oh well. Do make sure you report it though! I changed over to quick on and off thumb screws and put on only when traveling long distances.
Good luck.

So far I've had two "factory" trailer light couplers stolen, one at the ramp and one at the gas station (now keep them locked in the map pocket of my truck at ALL times except when I'm actually underway) and once someone stole the nuts/bolts off my license plate leaving the license place on the fender. That was also at the ramp.

There are people out there who would steal the shoes off your feet.

I figured these new "permanent" would start becoming popular! How many times do you have the opportunity to get your trailer-plate run by police? I wonder if you can call it in as stolen?
