Have you seen this boat?

WW reader David Firman thinks that whoever stole his boat "must have been very determined".

L&S Emerald is a 30ft Sea Otter, eight years old and green - or, at least, it was when it was stolen at the end of November, from Harefield Marina on the Grand Union. The theft appears to have been at night. The boat had no batteries at the time, leading to David's comment.

Sea Otters are, of course, made from aluminium - giving them a distinct appearance - and have an easily identifiable hull shape, with a rounded-off square stern.

If you see it, call PC Clayton at Hillingdon Police on 020 8246 1867; Phil Musk at Harefield Marina on 01895 822036; or David himself on 07980 013159. Boaters have an excellent record in tracking down stolen boats, as the theft of Holly from Middlewich Narrowboats this spring demonstrated - let's not let this one get away.

Update: The boat has now been found - apparently just two miles from the marina, with blue paint all over it and the towpath.
