Hi Everyone

Just hoped that everyone could keep an eye out for a Quintrex Nipper 3.1m tinny with rego. no. MJ392Q that i bought last week and was stolen 5 days later !! it was just the tinny they stole. (no trailer). I didnt even get a chance to take the kids out in it. Dirty rotten thieves. Also, if anyone has a cheap tinny for sale i would be interested, because now i am gonna have to buy another one anyways. It was stolen from Bay Street in Redland Bay on Thursday night / Friday morning 11th April. Gee it would be good if someone sees it and we can catch these pricks !

Cheers !

thanks mate. the next one will have my name ground into it with an angle grinder and painted bright ugly colours to hopefully make it not so attractive and easy to sell off down the track !

Just thinking about your tinnie.....have you had a look around the area - golf course / foreshore / parks......to walk away with it - someone has put it in there backyard / garage or dumped it somewhere.......have you reported it to the police?

Hey Mate. Yeah looked around quite a bit, rode my bike around the neighbourhood for a few hours, contacted the barge companies, contacted the police, the local radio and told everyone in the neighbourhood about it. i just hope that someone sees it in their neighbours backyard and dobs them in. The problem is now, everyone you see in the neighbourhood in the back of your head you think they are the thief.

Yeah - you just never know who your neighbors really are....

Another possibility is that the tinnie was taken to the end of Bay St. and taken for a ride to one of the islands.....

Hi mate,

Sorry to hear about your loss, it's a real shame, that not everybody wants to work hard and save for these things. I'm in Victoria point and will keep a look out for you.

Good luck in getting it back.

Cheers
Scott

suggests to me that it is probably locals asher, probably even live in your street, or nearby. Make sure both robberies are reported to police.

Hi Asher. Just drove up Double Jump rd this morning and notice a freshly painted tinnie with no trailer for sale up heading up towards Hieniman rd might be worth a look 8-)
Cheers...Paul.

It is a hard thing and no doubt the kids are disappointed. Might be a reminder to others to engrave their name or date of birth somewhere near the transom or even on the manufacturers plate if your boat has one. Good luck mate. :'(
