Default Caution: Stolen boat

Hi everybody,
Still new to the site but I thought I'd post this for my sake and anyone looking at buying a drift boat. I recently had my Hyde signature series drift boat stolen from me while fishing the South Holston river below the Weir Dam. Just trying to put the word out. From what I have heard boats can travel far quickly so even you guys out west may run into it. Quick description: 06, maroon/white, G4, only floated 4 times so looks new. Also, big rip in the guide seat that I glued a piece of clear vynal over, maroon color matched trailer, all options. Thanks guys

P.S. Homeowners insurance will only cover $1500 of any stolen boat in the great state of NC.

Sorry, have not seen the boat. Has the car been recovered?

Darn sorry to hear something like this. I hope the boat turns up for you.

Do you have a photo, that would make it a lot easier for someone to spot. Sorry again about your loss!

Tell Rod Champion at the South Holston River Fly Shop. He'll be able to get the word out around the area. Also do you mind if I copy this thread for you on a forum I use that's all about the SouthEast? Half the guys on it fish the Holston on a regular basis.

Yes please, re-post wherever you please. Also I only had the boat for a month before it was stolen. I know I have a picture somewhere I just need to put my hands on it.

Thanks guys

Either on here or somewhere else there was a guy talking about checking e-Bay and Craigslist. He found his stolen fly rod after it was posted for sale within a couple of days. He said that they caught the guy but didn't say anything about getting his rod. Worth a try. I hope that you get it back.

Sorry to hear about that! I'm going to repost this with a link back to this thread, in the event that someone has info and can contact you directly.

Let's hope that Karma decides to be a MoFo.

How long ago was the boat stolen? The owner of the aforementioned shop asked if it was the same one from a few months ago. So obviously there has been someon targeting boats in the area.
