Owning a Cat with outboards I am always worried about thiefs. It is SOOOO damn easy to remove a 300 X it is scary. You can literally loose 30 plus grand in motors in less than an hour.


Best of luck on the recovery !!!

Guarenteed that boat has been stripped and disposed of already. They haul them to Montreal, strip them and then haul them to northern Quebec and dum em in the woods. There are thousands of old logging roads that criss cross the north. You could dump a pile of bodies there and no one would see them in a 100 years.

I Love the St. Lawrence Seaway and pulling my boat up there was on my list of places to run...
Divenstar, you described the problem and didn't know it.

The 1000 Islands is a very safe area that is 2.5 hours from all the problems you described above.

[QUOTE=Perlmudder;2718641]yikes! what marina was it?


QUOTE]

It was the Port Dalhousie "Pier Pressure"marina. He was a Baha dealer and lots of other toys there. Unfortunately the place is closed now but the last few years he was everpresent and had a few hot boats there. They had my old Stinger 210 there in the yard too at that time for sale, but no one took it
I am at the marina just around the corner from there but we all know of the theft here in Niagara.

DAMN Shame!!! Especially the lack of response from the French Police. What appathy?!?!?
