Sucks. I'd suggest you bump this every three days kinda like a classified ad for the first week.

Rotten buggers! Nothing safe anymore. Watch the recyclers. The thieves will probably cut it up and sell it for scrap aluminum.

They take it all! Your motors and trailer may already be in another state and the boat may be chopped to chunks of scrap. Sorry to hear this! I had heard that a group of Mucks had a theft/scrapping racket going in the south end a couple years back.

Sorry to hear. Try also posting an ad on craigslist for a stolen boat. Craigslist has alot of people looking many places for boats and they continue to check back with the site while trying to find a deal.

man, this sucks!!!  Out of curiosity, was it stolen out of garage?  Driveway?  Storage?  Might be some words of caution that can be shared for the rest of us.

Man thats infuriating, sure hope homeowners extends to cover where you had this stored. Is there a way to search craigslist by state, or just region within the state? Makes searching tedious when you have to go through tacoma, then seattle etc

Aggravating! :bash: My flatbed trailer was stolen a few years ago while being borrowed. It was found dumped on the side of the road a week later, and the guy's jeep was found shortly after that.

Good luck on your recovery efforts. Pound the social media, that polished hull is gonna make it tough for them to keep it under the radar. If the detective assigned to your case isn't responsive, communicate only via email and always cc: their chief.   It's ok to be a bit of a pest to the detective, no matter how trivial they'll try to make your case sound.  Not sure how it goes in Pierce County, but I know that in Snohomish my trailer was very low on the priority list and they knew I had insurance, so they had better things to do. :twocents:

Search Tempest works pretty well - you can search a pretty wide range at once.

That sucks...I hate thieves..

The boat will probably show up dumped... generally they wont waste the time cutting it up. They take the motors and electronics and call it a day. The boat and trailer are Vin verified and attached to licensing so easy to id..the motors have vin's but generally people don't keep track of those.

Sorry this happened. Hopefully she's covered and you can upgrade her.

You should hound the police to view traffic camera's in the area around the time it was taken. Could probably get a plate number for the tow vehicle? Maybe that was stolen too- but, you never know. Hope you get resolution.

my money is that the boat will be found on a tweeker compound.  Lots of them on Military Road S a few miles south of Peasley Canyon Way.
