BOLO – Be On Look Out – Boat Thieves About

Calshot BSAC (pictured above) have had their £6,000 engine stolen off the back of their RHIB whilst it was in a locked storage facility on a New Forest farm. The incident occurred on or around Sunday 6th July 2014.

This is a Yamaha 150bhp two-stroke engine. Whoever took the engine cut through cables and pipes. (Fuel lines, pipes to the oil reservoir, throttle cables, steering lines and the echo location system).

The Police have advised that two other boat engines were stolen in the same period, and in much the same way. If you have an expensive boat engine stored with a boat, time to be extra vigilant.

    It might be worth the club facebook-ing it, I looked to share & couldn’t find it.
