I'd say they used a fork truck to lift the engines. Or some kind of cherry picker with a low reach. Maybe a wrecker truck?
Either way it's a shame to ruin the hull like that.

I believe that is the same boat from yhe Tulsa show< it was stole outside the Expo Center, and found north of Tulsa on a country rd.as seen in the photos. My wife was headed to Tulsa the day it was recovered, saw the law enforcement looking it over Aprox 100 yrds off of 75, brave bastards! I think that boat was fixed and is now on Grand Lake

How is that possible, when it shows a current bid deadline of 06/02/06?

If this is the same boat, which I don't think there are 2 that this happend to. The boat was at the tulsa fair grounds for the boat show, several years ago. Mac the owner of Hi Lift Marina built the the motors wich had prochargers. Some one must has previously seen the engines and knew where it was going to be. They took a chain saw to it in the parking lot.

actually looks to me like it can. if that cut went to the hard chine maybe not but it only looks like about 18 inches or so down the freeboard. its a flat panel with plenty of access for reinforcement and looks like no stringers or bulkheads were touched . i wouldn't have any problem doing this for my personal boat but i don't believe that should be repaired and put back out into circulation. just my .02 cents. (damn . . . now I'm broke )
