I just talked to my Father in Law in Parker..most of you know he has a home across the river from Badenochs...he was broke into last week and they cleaned him out...they even stole his v-drive boat..they are 86 years old and he has had this boat since 1973..

I don't have a pic yet but I will describe it. It is a 20 foot Conquest GN style with a wood deck. The boat is yellow and it is worn. The deck shows it's age also. It's powered by a BBC with a chrome tunnel ram with two 660 Holley's. The motor has the Holman/Moody scoop with the fins. It has a magneto and the block is painted brown. The valve covers are M/T and chrome also. The fittings are all stainless steel with braided lines. Battery is in the rear like most. It has two round aluminum tanks in the side...it has front buckets with a forward facing rear seat with a console. The seat are brown and sewed with squares. The boat has a crusader v-drive with a turbo 400 trans.

I really appreciate any help to pass this along to any other websites you may be on...they are devastated...besides the boat they took everything else...tools, guns, stereos. lots of valuables...

pics will be within an hour...

U think about how sickening and devasting this is for an elderly person.Then even if they were caught? A slap on the wrist imo.Something about third world countries that is awesome. The way they deal with thieves ...

When you reply there is a box that says Additional Options Click on Manage Attachments. You can add a few pics there. Just add a few at a time or your PC will lock up. No more than 4 pics.

That REALLY [email protected] SUCKS!!!!! My neighbor at the river got cleaned out last Sunday. Took all their TVs, BOOZE then bashed in the man door into the garage took all his tools, tossed it all in his Arctic Cat then drove off. The next day my dad caught the guy trying to load the Arctic Cat onto a trailer in the park next door. The cops came and arrested both guys and they got the Cat back but still trying to get a warrant to search their house to see if the TVs and tools are in there. We are on AZ side in Ehernburg and these dick bags lived in CA/Blythe so AZ sheriff said it may take a few days. I hate this shit, I say catch um, and hang um!! F$&KING TWEEKERS!!! Hope your inlaws get the boat back, I'll keep a look out for done in Blythe area for sure, never know.

Got any pictures of the boat on the trailer? That might help if someone sees it from a distance.

Mike, should this boat be located, you can count on a carload of Millers to help retrieve it. I can't imagine a better way to spend time with friends. :D

That sucks Mike. Sorry to hear this. Did the boat have zoomies? Because if it did, the Parker cops will find the boat...and fine the driver for a sound violation.
Thieves deserve to DIE!!!

Thank you so much for the diligence....I knew it would be found but I was always hoping it would be in one piece. Super emotional for my wife to see. We lost her parents in this time span and I wanted to restore the boat..
Dude....I would go find that transom piece...throw some polished exhaust tips and some cav plate hardware on it and rehab it into a sick ass wall piece. Leave the Ron and June on it as is. Nostalgic man. 👍

Repost from the CP thread.
I was so heartbroken I saw the pictures and lost it.


Dang Mike, this is hard to see.
Give Linda a hug for me.
I’ll be up that way tomorrow if someone can grab the transom, I’ll take it to the River this weekend or we can talk next steps and I’ll do to it what ya think best.
Breaks my heart!

Rattle Can Lou & I are PM'ing each other. I didn't feel it was cool to share the location, other than the broad area I posted. Hate to see someone go out there & mess with the remnants.

If @Rattle Can Lou took his wife on a journey, to visit the boat in its "resting place", picked up the transom, made it what "it should be" now(as said).. and had it hanging on the wall...


And RDP did a story and documented all pics and threads pertaining to this!! That would be an "EPIC" RDP story and report!!

The "outreach" of this "community" is absolutely AMAZING to me!!

Hats off to @Riverbottom to recognizing the boat and bringing it to attention

Hats off to @nordictom for the original posting of his findings!

RDP never seizes to amaze me!!

To Mike,
since the area is owned by a gov't agency, I ran it thru a few people of authority. I received approval to meet someone out there with your permission, so they can pick up the entire contents.

I PM'd you my email address. let me know yours via PM & we can work out the details.

Incredible, it wasn't enough to chop it it up, it had to have some shotgun blasts into it. And, for what? We live among animals.
