    Default 1982 Gilmore Special FE stolen at NAMBA NATS

    image.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgIf you live in the Seattle area please keep an eye out for my 1982 Gilmore Special 1/8 Scale Unlimited Hydroplane that was stolen today at our National event.
    The boat was on the back seat of my friends car and entry was gained by breaking the rear window. All his tool box and radio equipment was stolen also.
    The police were called and local RC dealers were notified as well as pawn shops. One pawn dealer indicated that all sales are typically reported to police.
    This was a broad daylight theft from a pretty busy park, (Twin Lakes, Marysville)

    If you hear anything I may be contacted through this site and others.

    Thanks,
    Bill Brandt

    Thats a problem of racing on the lake they are. The parking area is not real close
    to the racers and you can't see the parking lot from where they set up. Sorry to hear that. Is a nitro or electric? Will def keep my eyes peeled

    Drug users will steal anything they think could be sold for fast cash. Different world today. Sorry about your loss and will be looking for it.
