Theft of my offshore anchor angry
« on: September 04, 2010, 11:13:26 »
Hi

my offshore anchor with chain and barrel (see picture).
 was on 08/29/2010 stolen on a Tug show!

The Red Merlin was kept for over night with other models in a club container .

There, a model builder have stolen everything from the deck.(there were guests at the time yet)

I appeal to all colleagues who know me and my things to keep the eyes up, and to report to me by mail, when the things were seen

Thanks for reading and maybe later help.

Greetings Christian

Christian,

That is a terrible thing for someone to do at a Model Show. I hope they catch whoever stole the items.. police police police police police police

there really is some low life in this world..........probably though some younger member of the public attracted by the bright colour of the bouy and chain.
neil.
it is amazing what some people will steel.....i once had ONE  trawl door from a set of four stolen from a model trawler........what earthly good was one to them........just unfathomable.
neil.
I'll get it right ONE DAY

I agree,

its disgraceful. Sort of makes you not want to show your work off is the repayment is just theft of bits and pieces.

I do hope you find the culpret. If you do, let me know and i'll shove a full size bouy up his ....

Fortunately I have never had anything stolen, however, there have been parents who have alowed their children to throw stones at my tugs while at the pond. A brief conversation with the parent regarding the replacement cost of the "toy boat" in question rencered the desired result.

I certainly hope that your anchor equipment is recovered and the miscreant is dealt with appropriately.
