Please Help Stolen Aire raft from Homestead

Last night my good friend was putting his kids to bed when someone stole his raft out of his driveway while it was laid out to deflate.
The raft was taken from Homestead (Edwards). It is new this summer - a 14 ft 3E blue AIRE / grey bottem and greythwarts with 6 blue footcups.
The serial number is 200700008

I have faith in the rivergods that this boat will come back with your help!!!!!!!

Please respond with any info or call Pat at 970-390-8627

Just keep spreading the word, it is pretty hard to keep something as big as a raft a secret, especially in such a tight knit community of boaters.

A friend of mine had his raft stolen and the idiots tried to take it out on the same river about a week later, lets just say it was recovered pretty quickly.

Hope he did a police report so when we find it we can let them know quickly.

probably already know, but check out craigslists/ebay/pawnshops all over Western Slope, newspapers, post on every forum you can, put up flyers in raft/fly shops/etc. The more the better, that is what a friend of mine did and it worked. Right now its probably in car or stored away. Keep looking months down the road, that is when they will try and get rid of it. Good Luck. If you catch them, please kick the shit out of them for me.

Wow! I live in Homestead and leave stuff outside all the time without even thinking about it. Maybe not anymore. Good luck and I will be keeping my eyes open.

I will issue a beat-down to everyone with a blue Aire and check the serial numbers before they regain consciousness. You have to be proactive with this stuff.

Saw two people R2ing a new looking blue aire on the Eagle at cross creek at about 1 pm on Thursday. They just put in so I could not check the rafts #. Hope this helps
