My dad owns a boat moored at the Denver Sluice Complex and visited it last weekend to discover that thieves had remoored the boat tightly and had stolen the outboard, fuel tank, and controls.
The outboard was a Mercury Mariner 4 stroke 15hp, controls were a manual choke single lever, electric start.
Fuel tank was a 20 litre red plastic tank.
The boat was moored next to ten mile bank and thieves would have had to block the road whilst they took time to get the items off. Due to the weight of the outboard it would have taken multiple people also.
Police have been informed.
Keep an eye/ear out please.
Anyone want a 20ft boat hull?
