Sooner or later, the kayak is bound to pop up on craigslist with the mismatched pedals.

If I recall correctly, the difference between an 03 pedal and the new one is the mechanism used to pop out the retaining pin used for setting leg length.

On the 03 model pedal, you have to pull the pins out of the hole and the mechanism is made of wire, and the newer ones you squeeze the mechanism made out of molded plastic to re-adjust pin setting, is that right?

Just want to know what to watch out for if the thief knows he can't use the boat anymore and puts it up for sale somewhere.

Nail the bastard. With someone getting the license plate, there's no way police shouldn't get him. This can't be tolerated by our law enforcement officers, we have too much valuable equipment at risk.
Hopefully, he's not driving a stolen vehicle, too.

That really sucks.

But it sounds like it's going to be really hard for these guys to get away with their dirty chit.

Check out Mike's timelapse of the webcam - it may even be caught on camera. This is from Sunday 10/2

What's happening w/ this thread, i.e., the heads up, pictures of the perps., their truck and, most importantly, the link to the site where a license plate number can be tracked, represents one of the best things about this kind of site. While there's no lack of competitiveness amongst us, banding together to identify, isolate and catch someone who doesn't "play by the rules" (i.e., rips any of us off) is - well its just very cool. Good work, amigos. Hope it helps bring this low-life to justice!

"VIGILANTE": An individual who intends - or a member of a volunteer committee organized - to suppress and summarily punish criminals (as when the processes of law are viewed as inadequate); broadly: self-appointed doer(s) of justice.

Here is a gray outback for sale on Craigslist put up around noon today.

http://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/boa/2632349903.html

Listing says it's 4 years old, but based on the round front hatch in the photo, it is not... It should be older than 4 years old to have the round front hatch.

I asked for a photo and will see if he sends one, will update if he does send the picture of boat and drive. Or someone in the north county (Carlsbad) can go and see if a viewing can be arranged.

Big Tattoo on his chest. His hobie is an 03 outback it should be pretty easy to spot him if I see him again. Also not to many of those outbacks have the V2 turbo fins. He just lost his LJ privileges. Here's a photo. The other red arrow is where scally had his revo. Also this is a smilar picture of the truck

I hadn't noticed his chick until I saw a girl walking down the street with turbo fins. As soon as I seen her get in that car I took off trying to get the license info. Hope you can get these back.

Message to Theif...Return IT!



Damn, Jeremiah, that sucks!

Is there any lower form of life on the planet? Not only being a thief, but talking your chic into swiping stuff for you? F'n thieves!

Is it just me, or does this kind of crap always happen to the nice guy? This might be the, one, time and place, where my natural scowl comes in handy.

I was parked just to the left of the web-cam image. Right next to the suspected criminals. I saw them, too. It's not like two people sitting by a kayak draws that much attention, though. My kayak was there, just out of camera view---with two Mirage Drives on board!

The ballsy display in the middle of the day is what's the most impressive: A packed beach, with other kayak anglers, going about there business loading and unloading. Thanks to guys like, Dominic, for watching his brothers back!

That's one fine way to break into a code group if you asked me.

Personally, having the information that's been presented, I probably would have kept it quiet. Then again, I would have wanted to warn other kayak anglers as well. So, good on Jeremiah for putting up a public warning.

I just know, that being the complete idiot this guy obviously is, he would come back to fish La Jolla. If he is indeed a fishermen, the luhr is just too great! Maybe after a couple of "Fresh To Death" reports---and I would most assuredly hit a home run with my Halibut-bat, take back my pedals, open his front hatch, flop his lifeless body in the Southbound current and keep fishing without missing a beat. If the thief is reading this, you better choose your victims wisely. I can assure you, street justice is alive and well!

A fast clicking job might get more pics? or someone with more computer skills?

Any indication that the Police are not going to pursue, and I am in for the posse. It is about time for a happy ending on one of these damn crappy starting stories.

Sucks Jer. I got the plates in a similar scenario a few years back... two detectives knocked on my door wanting me to pick the perp out of a photo line up. The Asshat should be toast.

Didn't you see that truck with a screaming kicking kid being thrown inside.... That truck would be found really quick!

For real though.... Wouldn't a local news team do a little investigating for you? Especially if you include all the theft in the last few months / weeks...

I still propose we all mark our stuff, that way it is that much easier to identify!

Did you post this on bloodydecks? Them and all the fishing sites, someone knows this kid! He will get what is coming! you just need to blow it up all over the internet and facebook and eventually this piece of work will get what is coming!
