It makes me sick to look at your first picture. I can't believe how much sh$t they took. Looks like they had some time or made a couple of trips.

I boat (used to?) on the Chain O'Lakes in Northern Illinois.

The boat was stored in a private locked pole barn with many other boats which didn't seem to have been touched. The door was forced open.

The police don't seem to think it's a big deal, the guys finger prints are all over the place and they grudgingly accepted a part to test.

I agree it must have taken some time. Some parts were carefully unbolted, others ripped off.

A serious concern is where did all those valve cover nuts and washers go, down the engine?

Thanks all for your concern, keep your ears open!

Downright sickening

What does the owner of the locked pole barn have to say? Was the place broken into?

If your insurance covers it.... I'd have the engines pulled and the pans removed... just to be sure... don't want loose stuff getting into the oil pick-up screen... prudent thing to do... Rotten scum.... damn rotten scum.... I've had cars broken into .... they cause hundreds of dollars damage breaking in... only to take a twenty dollar flashlight....

I'd have those motors checked out. They probably sabotaged them. If the insurance doesn't want to pay for it now, get something is writing addressing your concern.

I`ll keep my eyes open down here in Kankakee. Why don`t you post the information in the COPS forum. Lots of eyes will be watching then.

They did take the $20 flashlight too (and bracket). The barn owner is a friend and they did try to break into his house also.

I was thinking they might try ebay?

Who would want a used hour meter with 260 hours on it?

I will try COPS too.

Ya know what's weird is that the little f*cks took off the valve covers how'd they know rollers were under it unless you didn't have baffles. Also like you said stupid stuff was taken starter, batteries, but not the hydraulic rams or efi system. It had to have been dopey ass punks, I hope you catch them and string them up on top of the pole barn for all their friends to see. Of course beat them silly first.
