Boat stolen called Ruby


Featured Posts

Just read on the other side that a cafe  boat has been stolen in Lymm. I hope it is not the widebeam which was there the last time we went past. I read in one of the canal mags that the couple had fitted it out as a cafe and then he took ill and I think died.

It may well be the wide beam as it was referred to as a barge but on the Bridgewater they seem to think everything is a barge.

When I started boating, there was a story of a yard owner somewhere on the Shroppie who had noticed the owners never came and simply sold almost all the boats at his mooring and scarpered to Spain with the proceeds.

I thought you were going to say that he started a time share company with the proceeds, but that might have been controversial.

Certainly not going south

 

It's a widebeam. Can't go through Preston Brook or across  Barton Aquaduct. Or the Ashton. The only option is the Rochdale until they get to the M62

Had this from Northants Police this morning.

Another one?

 

Northamptonshire Police are appealing for information regarding a theft of a Narrow Boat from Cosgrove Marina where unknown persons have taken the vessel by unknown means.
 
This happened on or around the 8th December 2020

They nicked the loo too...

 

Now the Police have nothing to go on .........................................

 

Maybe it was C&RT's new composting toilet removal team.

Well we could do with a bit more information than that Bob....😉

Other than the crime reference number, that's all that was in the Rozzer's email bulletin!

Not even a boat name.

I wonder if anyone has probed the mooring with a long shaft just in case its on the bottom?

Well there was a boat sunk at Cosgrove by the December floods.
