I would imagine whoever's got them has already installed them on their boat and I'd bet they're stupid enough to boat on the lake with them this summer.

Nothing pizzes me off more than a thief!

Be nice if you can find them, but in all honesty, they could be mounted on the boat right next to yours all summer and chances are you won't know it.

I'll keep an ear and eye out for anything.
Yeah, they probably figured that it would look like they were working on the boat because it was so close to the showroom. Big ballz!

That totally blows Steve. Does insurance want to do anything?

If he decides he wants to trade it on a new AT, I'll ignore the no drives part.

That sucks, I've been to Silver Sands it is a nice place and not on what I would consider a well traveled area. Hope they catch the SOB that did this.

So did it have a lock on it?

Not that it matters, I bought my current boat with a lock but no key. I don't think it slowed down the shop doing service on it ONE BIT.

No locks.

Locks only slow them down. If they want, they'll get it.

I am usually very suspicious of thefts done at marinas/ dealerships. My mindset is that it is an inside job more often than not.......
