I thought the offer of a new boat 40% off was very nice and unnecessary. I would try to return the property and catch the thief cause its the right thing to do and I don't want it to happen to me.

I learned a long time ago to say the f out of situations like this. Thieves are not normal thinking ppl and I don't need some freak out there with an ax to grind with me.

I'd gladly pay the full price if I wanted a RMR to avoid being on a nutballs $#!t list. In no way is it worth a 40% saving to be exposed to the endless possibilities of said thief.

Plus if I start nosing around ppl boats at put in and looking for #s, I'm sure to piss off someone.

And this is where I going to piss some off some of the buzzards real good. Who leaves a new boxed boat in the back of a truck in Denver unattended? That's just not good business. If I lost my boat that why, I would not ask other to put themselves out there for me. Police are highly trained for this. It would be a tough lesson to learn. I would consider myself a dumb ass and wouldn't want anyone else to know. But that's me.


With that said, It must suck to trust Denver too much and lose a boat.

This was my first thought as well. What do these boats run? I don't run inflatable mattresses and have no idea, but I sure as hell wouldn't leave $1K sitting unsecured in the back of my pickup.


Sucks either way, but a little mitigation would have probably prevented this.

A quick response to a few of the comments:

1. The hotel didn't have security cameras for the well lit parking lot. Just their front entrance.

2. 40% off retail is twice what we offer on a Pro Deal. That's $1040 off the price of a 14' raft. If that's a meaningless amount, no problem, don't bother. But, if you happen to run across my raft, it's $1000 or so in your pocket.

3.. As for dirtbagkayaker's comments, specifically:

"If I lost my boat that why, I would not ask other to put themselves out there for me. Police are highly trained for this. It would be a tough lesson to learn. I would consider myself a dumb ass and wouldn't want anyone else to know. But that's me."

I did file a police report with the Denver PD. I'm not asking anyone to confront any suspected thief. If you see a brand new 14' gray RMR raft for sale anywhere at a ridiculously low price, just give me a call and I'll call the police. I really don't expect to get the boat back but it's worth trying to nail the scumbags so they don't break into your car and steal your stuff next time.

As for the "dumb ass" comment; I may be stupid enough to leave a boxed raft in the back of my truck at a well lit, hotel parking lot but I'm smart enough to pay for insurance to cover such a loss. But that's me. I try to be smart about being stupid.

However, it was a good lesson learned. Time to get a locking shell for the truck in an attempt to keep the low life scumbags out.

Thanks for the comments.

Cheers,
Denny

park your truck in the same lot. put a raft box in the back and crawl inside. get a friend to seal the box. wait until you are stolen and then, when you get to the hideout you can jump out and yell " surprise".
