Default Need to vent...............

Some crackhead went into my OL some time last night and stole my stereo system out of the boat. The boat was parked at my shop and I check it every day. The thief even tried to put the cover back on so no one would notice. I noticed the cover looked a little disturbed so I looked closer and found the lines to the cover were cut . I'm really
pissed off.. I'm out 2 amps , clarion head unit , handheld vhf , complete 12volt switch panel with breakers, and not to mention the
countless number of hour to install these items ..........I 'm thankful that the [email protected] didn't damage my new cabin interior. I hate f#%ing

Sucks.....However I dont think a crackhead would be carefull, they are like Tornados when they rob places. Ever seen how scumbags leave cars for instance? Scumbags just rip them out with crowbars or a screw driver. People that dont want you looking close to home however are careful. Hey, I'm a trusting individual........ Another way an outside thief would'nt care if you discovered the theft today. Sounds like trying to put on the cover conceil the theft was "Tom wont be using the boat for a few months so he wont notice until then that I stole from him"

Sorry to hear about your dilema Tom. It is pretty sad when people have to resort to stealing to live. You might want to install a video camera on the premises in the future. Was anything else taken at the same time or just your boat?

I had the stereo in my Baja ripped off...Not once, but twice!

I think they should cut thieves hands off.

On a possitive note, if you need help getting your stuff replaced my buddy is an authorized dealer for Eclipse, Fosgate, Clarion, Kenwood, Alpine, etc. etc. He's out here in Cali but can ship to you. He just did the system on our Top Gun and it came out UNREAL! Whole Eclipse system with three LCD screens. Let me know if you need anything.
