Motors must have been real nice if they walked away from those drives. There is a special place in hell...

Sure seems like maybe they got caught or were afraid they were getting caught, there is still quite a bit of stuff left on the boat.(Not $55k worth) Definitely weird that they didn't pull the drives and boxes.

Hull was cut open on each side and motors stolen. Boat HAD 900SC's. Boat has Imco Advantage Extreme drives, but no props. Tri axel Trailer is included.
Trailer is steel, has brakes, and a GVW of 5400.

Car thiefs ! No respect for the Boat or probably even know what the rest of the equip. is. I don't see how a boater would have the heart to do that to any boat.

Wow, so what did they use that they had to cut the sides out? Fork truck? Seems like that was the hard and noisy way to do it. Easy enough to remove the hatch right? Stupid robbers I guess.

If that's the same boat and it looks like it is, that happened in Tulsa before the boat show two years ago while waiting to load into the building (overnight). I heard they thought it was drag racers that just wanted motors.
