stolen motor

Guys I really need your help.. I just found out my yamaha 25 was stolen between today and Monday. It was taken from our camp on the east pearl river in Pearlington, ms. Any possible information would be greatly appreciated. I know its a long shot, but I figured I'd give it a shot. I'm in college and that was my hard earned money from the past summers, and was my only boat for freshwater fishing and crawfishing. It was locked with chain and locked on the screw brackets but they cut both. They also took my gas tank and battery (for the second time). Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Did you make a police report and provide the serial number and any unusual markings on it? They do recover a few. I wish you luck .

The police are coming to look at the boat today. Unfortunately the motor was very clean and well kept with very little markings, but I do have the serial number. Thanks

ernest is right, thieves are pretty much stupid! maybe they mite sell it out of that area? if i was you, i would check the serial number on every one you see, if possible! if they arent stupid and keep it in that same area, they mite try to make it look different than it does now, like put an older cover on it or dog out the paint to make it look older? who knows? good luck!!

25 yamaha

I just saw that add. That neither looks like that motor or even a yamaha to begin with. That's just a bad add all the way around. Looks more like a older Johnson or evnrude. Thanks for the heads up, I may still give it a call and see what those pics are about.

yamaha 25 add

Did some more research on that add. That motor seems to be a Yamaha 25 3 cylinder.
