Stolen Boat! PICS BOAT FOUND!!!!!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

So I just get phone call this morning and it wasn't good news. It was my grandma saying that one of my project boats has gone missing. It was my buddies rig. I have pictures of it. It is a 1985 starcraft with a walk through windshield. It has a 1986 Mercury 850 model. (85 horse power). It also had a brand new Minn Kota trolling motor just sitting in it, 2 batteries, a new roll of carpet, and about a 80lb snap-on tool box of mine. If you see it please let me know. I was working on it for a friend of mine. He has reported it stolen. It happend either lastnight or this morning.

I'll keep an eye out on this side of Missouri.  Not many Starcrafts like that around so it should stick out like a sore thumb if it's around these parts.

Keep on eye out on the classifieds in your area as well. I've seen it happen before in my area, they steal it and immediately put it up for sale.  Sorry to hear the news.  Hope you find it.

Hit in the head by a duck...now that is a heck of a way to go.  These people live such miserable, disingenuous lives, that I almost feel sorry for them.  Not really though.  Their punishment will come in due time, and you can rest assured true happiness will never be theirs.

Sorry your boat was stolen, and I hope it is returned.  Looks like a great baot that would have provided tons of fun times.

I guarantee they aren't hobos.  Aluminum is getting good money these days (ask yourself why Lund is building glass boats) and the current economic climate is like throwing gas on the crime fire.

Local law enforcement knows where to look for the boat.

Other law enforcement agencies in your area also know where to look and finding a boat is something off the radar screen so they wll be interested.

The sad part is that the perks will take the boat to a chop shop and remove the items they can sell.

They will then take the parts to a metal recycle yard for the junk value. If they mix it up with other metal then the recycle people will have no idea the metal from your boat is included in the sale.

I agree with the aforementioned suggestion that you check the classifieds, Craig's List and e-bay for the trolling motor. This may be your best bet on helping law enforcement catching the perks.

One question - did you have a trailer lock on the trailer?

Just wondering.  :(

That sucks big time, sure does look like a lonely location for huge chunk of aluminum. It is hard to believe in small town USA something like that can happen and nobody knows who did it.

I didn't have a trailer lock on the trailer. Like said just above, it's small town USA here. The secluded place that it looks is just on the other side of our machine shop. There is a big house just on the other side about 400 yards off. That's my grandma's.

I don't understand how this crap happens, ballsy people, hope the law finds them first....

That was my first thought, I've checked everywhere that I could think that it would be. I notified all the scrap yards within 100 miles. I hope he tries to sell it, we have the title.

MIRACLE!! Boat was found! An older man and two younger women had it stuffed full of car trim and other pot metal crap and was trying to take it into Fort Scott recycling. The scale operator called the police immediatly and they nailed them before they could even unhook it from the truck. The motor was not on the boat, it was at their house inbetween Nevada MO and Fort Scott, KS. Along with a few meth labs... hello jail time!!!!!! Thanks everyone!

That is great news. I thought you would never see it again. I agree that the scrap yard guy should get a case of beer.
