Stolen boat in Bahia de Los Angeles Pics Added


https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1021444784421459...

From fb post
As many of you know, Don Holden sold "Bella Gato" to Bill Vessels last week. Bill and his wife took the boat to L.A. Bay. Last night, after they had anchored the boat near the launch ramp in L.A. Bay, someone stole the boat and trailer in the night. The boat is registered in So Dakota and the trailer has So Dakota plates. The police will be notifying all authorities to be on the lookout for "Bella Gato". Please, please be on the lookout for this boat as well and feel free to share this post? We are heartsick over this theft.

As you probably already know a generous reward for the Police or whoever, works best....

Did they actually have to load the boat on the trailer before they drove away with it? If so, they have some pretty big juevos.
I guess anytime you take your trailer off your rig, a hitch lock is a must. :(

Sorry for the loss. As a lesson for the rest of us with boats, was there any security devices on the boat? I have often left mine anchored overnight with the keys in the ignition. Ugh....not doing that anymore!

I wish I could answer all your questions but I really do not know anymore than I posted. The owner of the boat went back to California the day I posted this for him and I have not spoken to him since. If I hear more I will post an update. Sorry for my incomplete info!

The owner has now advised me that the boat was parked on its trailer next to his rented cabana at Casa Diaz in Bahia de Los Angeles when the boat, motors and trailer were stolen.

That is a piece of good news as the insurance will kick in--if it was insured. When I get insurance, they do not cover the trailer or the boat when it is on the water.

Well, the policies I have gotten in Mexico always stipulate that the boat and trailer MUST BE ATTACHED TO A TOW VEHICLE, for the insurance to be in effect.

Also, many policies dont actually cover theft, only damages from accidents.

Just like Mexico. The details rise to the top of the murky sludge!

Por favor robeme

It’s beyond frustrating to get ripped off on a large item like a boat, trailer, motor combination as a package. Thieves probably couldn’t resist this one. Sorry to see such a significant loss.

My friends and I were offroading up a canyon and found your boat! It was stripped - no engines or steering mechanisms, but hull seemed to be in good conditions - it is sitting just off of the dirt road covered in branches in a feeble attempt to hide the boat. The bait tank and a seat we found about a mile from that. Life preservers still in the boat! We have a few pictures, but as we were on quads we couldn't carry anything back . We reported it to the police- 24 Baja - anything else you want me to do?
