Default Help me catch this guy!

I went to look at my boat at the storage barn today. I opend up the cover and saw the speakers were missing. Must be punks.

I tried to use jumper cables to raise the engine hatch, no dice. I picked it up manually and could not believe my eyes!

The entire exhaust system and silent choice was gone. The vavle covers were off but in the boat and the Crane rocker arms and push rods were gone.

Lots of other wierd stuff like the hour meter, the hydraulic steering resevoir was taken. Other expensive stuff was left.

This must have happened just before March 15th in Antioch Illinois. If you hear of anything, please PM me or [email protected]

All of our insurance if affected by these actions!

Thanks for any help,


F

Cut the starter wires which should be the worst thing to fix.

Absolutely sickining. Sorry to here this.

It's getting to the point that these thiefs need to be dealt with, and NOT by our 'slap 'em on the wrist' judicial system.
