Could just be opportunist mindless petty thieves from Gosport out nicking from boats. Stupid question but was there fuel / keys on board. May have nicked what they wanted from other boats and seen this poor blokes boat as an opportunity for getting the stolen gear back to GOsport. Looks like the boat has been burnt out on the edge of the concrete slip at the back of the Rugby club. Be interesting to know what else was nicked and whether it ends up being offered up at any of the local tackle shops or on line. Wouldn't give them the credibility to suggest they targeted the boat for any other reason.

That is not a good slipway to get a boat on a trailer if you dont have enough tide, maybe lost the tide and couldnt get the boat loaded so torched it to get rid of finger prints,,,, but total scum bags what ever the reason

My kids said there was a burnt out boat by the scout hut but thought it was an open one, I can see why.  It is quite high up the waterline, which will limit the time when it was beached and therefore might make checking VTC easier.  Qientiq might have VTC along their back fence.

Scumbags like that will no doubt have their DNA and fingerprints on record so will have been desperate to get rid of any trace. Thing is, when people get away with it once they are likely to do it again. Burnt out boat this time but idiots like that have no regard for others safety and it could be a lot worse next time. So, if no fuel was there another boat toeing it??? Or did they come well prepared?? DNA and Fingerprints on the craft that they thieves from?? CCTV etc??? How actively are the police looking at this?? Ray, really sorry that your mate has had this happen to him and these people need to be caught. It may pay for your pal to let the police know that there are a few hundred interested parties following their progress.

Feeling for the chap that's had his boat stolen, hope the insurance pays out quickly. I expect the police are to busy cleaning their new boat to worry about finding the culprits. Does make you think about what you leave on your boat that could so easily be pinched. Is there such as thing as a good boat alarm ?

Hi Chaps,
 
I have been reading the bad news about the boat, feel sorry for you.  I have a friend who is one of the pilots at Dolphin, i asked him if anything was seen...  He has given me a number for you to call and the may have records of CCTV..  might be a long shot but hey,,  02392765206
 
Thanks

I have an alarm fitted. (Made myself)
It has pressure sensors so if a hatch or door is opened then a 120db piezo alarm sounds off.
I guess its who is near to hear the alarm as well. (I am relatively lucky in that there are a few live aboards very close)
 
Happy to assist anyone in the design and fitment of this very simple but highly effective alarm.
