Please be on the look out for my yellow Hobie 18SX. It was stolen from our house in southwest Houston between Thursday morning and Saturday morning. It stands out since it has a Tiger mast and self tacking jib set up. If you see it please call me at 713-449-8six67. One theory is it might be on its way to Florida since titles are not required there.

that sucks. I hope we spot it somewhere. It's certainly distinctive! I posted a couple of direct image shots from your link and we'll be on the lookout.

Thank you for the picture help Jake. Apparently I am not computer illiterate enough.

It is very distinctive, should be easy to spot. Hopefully someone can steal it back for you.

Titles are now required in FL. We'll keep an eye out for it.

We'll watch here. Make sure you keep an eye on Ebay and Craig's list. You nail em to the stake and I'll light the fire mad

I am monitoring Ebay and the houston/galveston craigs list. If it shows up on Ebay a freind and I are going to bid on it and drive the price way up so the idiot thinks he has made a ton of money, then I'll show up with the police to complete the transaction.

Use a search engine that does all of Craigslist.

I use this one: http://www.searchallcraigs.com/

I hope you get your boat back, that just sucks.

that would be great if he sees all of us bidding the price to some spectacular amount. We can claim it's a "collectors Item".

And once the seller sees all those different people bidding on it, he'll be more than happy to contact the "winning bidder"... smile

How hard would it be to get the boat across to Mexico. Maybe it's not to late to alert the border patrol.

Jay, it IS a collectors item!

Collin, were your sails with it?

I hope it turns up, they're prosecuted, etc.

That boat is probably one of the fastest TheMightyHobie18's of any type, ever. Formerly Chris flumpmasters boat I believe.

If that was the case, that boat was across the border long before it was known to be gone.
