4 Kayaks stolen in Charlottesville, VA

I know this is a long shot posting here, but I figured it was worth a never know where stolen boats may end up.

The 4 boats belonged to the UVA Outdoors Club and were 3 Dagger RPMs and 1 LL Trigger. They were locked via a cable to a tree in the woods near the Rivanna River take-out (off N. Milton Rd. in Shadwell) and left for several hours. I suspect the thieves were local, and may have been recreational paddlers. If you have any info or see boats that fit the following descriptions (see below as well as attached pics) on the water or for sale, or have good advice on what else I can do to get these boats back, please contact Dave Clark at or 434-962-9737. Thanks!

Boat Descriptions:

RPM - Blue/Green/White; NOC sticker on stern, had removable hip pads in cockpit

RPM - Red/White; IR adjustable backrest

RPM - mostly maroon with some blue and white, may have had hip pads and IR seat

Liquid Logic Trigger - orange

I am assuming you called the police.

I would also check the people who manage that area, land owners, rangers, or what have you...perhaps the boats being left unattended gave some authority the idea to remove them...
I've never boated before, but I have posted a lot on Mountain Buzz!

I hat theives, had a Yeti 575 around $5000 in value stolen last year off of my locked roof rack while I went into a park bathroom for a few minutes. The things I would do to the low lives that jack our expensive, hard earned toys.
