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?

Hi Marv, I sent a message to the boat owner (Bill Vessels) about your discovery and post here.

Bad news to report. Evidently the thieves went back out to where the boat was left in the desert and torched it. Maybe to destroy evidence? Too bad.

So sad and borders on evil to take something from someone and do that. I hope some of the good people of Bahía hear who is responsible so this may not happen again to someone else.

There sure is a dark side to "The Amigo Country"

wasn't the owner on his way to get it? i read that 5 days ago. and why would the thieves go back to the scene to torch it? too much chance to be found out. i'm thinking this is different people but then again, only the scorpions and lizards really know what happened.

The boat was found about 14-15 kilometers out of town on the dirt road that goes up Manila canyon as I understand what Marv posted.

I wonder if they might have done it to diminish the potential for a reward to work. The owner is less likely to post a reward for the motors if the boat is destroyed.

Very odd that it was torched shortly after a report on Nomads that the hull had been found. Coincidence? Most everyone in BOLA has access to the internet now, dont they? Nomads is a pretty well-known website.

Thieves are generally pretty dim. I doubt that they put much thought into it.
Could have even been kids , I grew up in a very remote area long ago in a lawless place and sorry to say kids my age set more than a few things ablaze

I would bet on the report to the police prompted the torching much more so than postings on the internet.
