Stolen Furuno electronics

 I had the following gear stolen over the weekend from my boat:

Furuno FCV-1150, S/N 2256-5563

Furuno TZT215 S/N 1000-3110-2829

Reports have been submitted to the relevant authorities.  I don't hold much hope of having the gear returned but might help someone avoid stolen equipment.

Hearing of things like this

Tue, 2019-06-11 18:56

Really gives me the business, bloody bastards and bottom feeders who no doubt take this stuff honest hard working people really put in the hard work to save enough to make their fishing a bit more enjoyable then along comes low life who steal it to flog and pay their local meth dealer IMO
I really hope that your gear gets recovered and the swill who knocked it off get a good sentence.

Agree but it also pisses me off that boaties are prepared to buy this stuff knowing that it is probably knocked off.

If people didnt but it there would be no market.

Saw an example of this recently where a furuno 295 was advertised for say $800 but is well known to be over $4k new.

Everyone said probably hot but still heaps of people saying dont care or messaging to try buy it.

Photos showed the serial number and when tracked it was proven to be stolen.

Its these same people who would go off if someone took their stuff.

One weekend I was sorting all

Tue, 2019-06-11 21:25

One weekend I was sorting all my tackle and lures etc taking pics to value it for insurance purposes and then for a laugh started posting it all on Blackmarket Perth FB page and calling it stupid shit like 'painted sinkers' for my jigs at 5 for $10. My inbox went into meltdown with people wanting to buy what they could.

Sorry to hear that - I assume

Sorry to hear that - I assume your boat is penned? - I have had some trouble over the years out of Fremantle Fishing boat harbour (DPI pens) and Royal Perth - they come in small boats rather than down the jetties, I noticed a few boats at RPYC now have CCTV installed which these days is not too expensive

We had an epirb stolen off our boat on the DPI pens! (WTF?), i always hoped I would get the call from marine safety - "your epirb has been activated west of rottnest - are you ok??" - yes mate sorry it must be faulty... :-)

Almost certainly they got onto my boat via the water.

quality individuals - we have a lot of CCTV around the club at RPYC but limited on the jetties to the entrance - not that helpful when they come by boat....

It’s bloody crook I reckon

It’s bloody crook I reckon when shit like this goes down.

Even if they had cameras on the pens, what good does it do unless you have security personnel actively watching the cameras. They also need to be prepared to take action to apprehend the offenders.

Chances are unlikely that they could be identified from camera footage without something to ID them. More than likely they will have taken steps to prevent that. Even if there is clear footage, the police struggle to get anywhere.

Possibly more effective would be motion sensitive alarms inside the boat with a bloody loud siren and a strobe light.

Police are presently a YEAR behind

Wed, 2019-06-12 17:23

Just handling traffic and collision reports ......we were hit and run EX313 a black Hilux and we are still awaiting their details to pursue our damages and have been told it might be another six months.   What we need is a State Government that actually funds a decent force with a heap more police and judges prepared to stop slapping wrists and put these tea leaves away

I don't believe that cctv is a great deterent

I don't believe that security cameras cctv are any deterrent to determined thieves. They most probably protect their identity so that they can't be identified and these things are for after the robbery has occurred.

There is nothing like having a security guard hiding around the yard and keeping out of sight and who is prepared to take positive action to convince those who are up to no good to think again.
Am I talking about using violence, yes Iam, if low life are caught being some place they have no right to be and up to no good then a good flogging will certainly remain in their memory longer than a slap on the wrist they get from the courts.
Nothing else appers to be working at the moment.

Hi matere entering by the

Thu, 2019-06-13 09:56

Hi mate
re: entering by the water - the last time our boat was broken into at the DPI pens in Fremantle (was a good 7-8 years ago now) the transom door (which is a 2 stage process to unlock) was open - also the Jetty gate would be very hard to get around - especially if you are carrying anything
At rpyc it is similar, the Jettys have security gates which would be hard to scale and have CCTV at the entrance - last break in( 18m ago)no evidence of anyone accessing the jetty through the cameras.
CCTV may not stop all - but it would be a deterrent for some, alarms are not much use if there is no one around to hear them at 1am-

Preasure matt on the back deck that turns on blue flashers or flood lights audable alarms etc are good deturants . Cops will generaly just say were you insured ? all good then ,buy a new one. common way in for the little f*&%# are small dingys and paddle cannoes under the cover of dark .
