Sorry to hear this. Just curious, how did you have the raft stored? I have mine outside under a tarp on a trailer and am a little concerned about the same thing happening.

I would be curious too.. I leave mine tarped on a trailer.. but my trailer is in my back yard behind a locked gate. out of sight from the street. But I suppose if somebody does notice it, there's not a whole lot to stop them. (my dogs might bark, but they're small dogs and not intimidating in the least)

It was on the trailer in the driveway behind the house. It was not visible from the street either, which means someone was snooping around. There was a suspicious ad this morning on Craigslist, but has since been removed.

Did it have a fishing frame on it? I saw that ad yesterday, but it did not say what kind of boat it was. It looked light blue and faded. I emailed the guy but heard nothing back.

I also saw the ad. It was titled "Rafting Raft". The boat was blue and had a fishing frame with what looked like a DRE flip seat with blue cover, a polydeck on over one bay and 3 black or gray oars. Looked like a vanguard but didn't say the brand. If you haven't already, make a police report. They may be able to serve a court order on craigslist for the ad and seller's IP address which can help ID him. I'm familiar with these sorts of investigations, so PM me if you want more info.

If you have the sent email you may want to forward it to the OP. If you have the seller's email address, even if it's a craigslist forwarding address, that could be helpful in an investigation.

I also saw the strange ad this morning and emailed the author, but didn't hear back. I marked the link as a favorite so I can actually still see it. Here are a couple screen shots of the Craigslist ad and boat. Hope this info is helpful!

The post ID in the final image would be important to pass along to police if you are going to file a report.
