I am just passing this along as I saw it on wakeworld and thieves suck. I thought they would have posted here by now but have yet to see it so here it is. I don't know this dealership or the original poster found here. Also when he refers to today it was on Saturday Sept 15th it happened.

If anyone in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex sees a solid white 2007 Mastercraft X2, please call Texas Mastercraft at 817.589.7547 or your local police department immediately. The boat was the Sasser Wakeboard School boat used at the TXMC location and was stolen sometime between 7:30pm Friday and 8:30am today from the back lot of TXMC. The boat is solid white with white decals, has tower speakers, and is on a white trailer. There should not be any other boats in the area matching this description. The last two digits of the serial number on the back right corner of the hull are "07" and it has the new Mastercraft tower. There were "Texas Mastercraft" stickers on the windows and "wakeboardinglessons.com" stickers above the rub rail, but those might or might not still be on the boat today.

Additionally, a customer's 2004 Mastercraft X-Star was stolen from a slip on Lake Lewisville this week. It was a red and black X-Star. Please call the dealership if you have any information on this boat as well.

We would appreciate it if everyone on the board in the DFW area could keep an eye out for these boats and give us a call if you have any information. Please call my cell phone if it is after business hours.

Thanks,

will keep my eyes peeled on I-30 from Royse City to Greenville

I imagine the boat will turn up soon, pretty hard to move something like that

If I see it out east, I'll let you know. I'll also tell my local dealer to be on the lookout for these boats as trade ins.

I'm guessing the dealer network has a hot list by HIN, so there is no way to trade it in.....start watchin for parts on ebay.

I don't wanna wish any bad luck to the owners of these boats, but, I do hope whoever stole them forgets to turn on the blower and it blows up when they try to start it.:mad: Low life scumbums~!

It should be easy to spot. I saw it the other day when I picked up the boat for the fly-in. The logo is white and it almost looks like the logo has worn off. The guys at Texas Mastercraft are great! Please keep your eyes peeled. A lot of dumb arses steal boats. You would be amazed at how many people think that they can get away with it. MC owners stick together!

Can we get a picture from TXMC of the boat to place in the thread. It is easier for me to remember a picture then to remember a text description of the boat(s).

I live in DFW and will keep an eye out.

Boats being stolen happens where I am at (southern WI) all to often. I don't know how a thief would go about selling/registering a stolen boat. Everyone needs to take precautions to prevent theft of their boat. I even go as far as to lock the wheel on my shore station to prevent access to the boat.

With the world we live in maybe we need to come up with a lo-jack type system for high end boats.

Boats could have gone south in 10-12 hrs. They were not noticed for a long time. I to hope they jackknife and land in their laps.

Great ending. I spoke with Jimmy yesterday and they have recovered the boat. The jackA who took it tried to use it on Lake Bridgeport(in the Metroplex) and someone saw it being gassed up at a marina. They were able to secure the name and number of the person who stole it and had to contact the FBI(an agent had recently bought a boat from Jimmy). A phone call was made and the boat was found in a parking lot the next morning. I will fill you in as I hear more about the idiot! Thanks to everyone around here and South who kept their eyes open. I know that everyone at Texas Mastercraft appreciates it!

not knowing the geographic locations you speak of.....
how far away was the boat from the dealership?


that'll teach the thief not to use his debit/credit card to fuel a stolen boat:uglyhamme

How could one prevent their boat from being stolen, say they keep it on the trailer in their carport? Is there any kind of wheel lock you can put on the trailer that will make it impossible to move?

When I kept mine in a carport, I chained the trailer to the conerpost.

Also make sure you have locking lug nuts otherwise tire off new tire on and away they go.

Can you just put the trailer on jack stands and remove the wheels? I do this every winter. Not to prevent theft, but to keep the tires from sitting in one spot all winter...I put them in the garage.
