Over ten outboards of a variety of sizes and makes were stolen from Wexford Harbour last night (October 14). The outboards went missing some time after 8pm. Although these engines have probably already left the country there is a possibility that they may be offered for sale in your area. "Please keep a watch out for any unusual activity around moored or stored boats and report anything suspicious to the Garda", said the Irish Marine Federation's Steve Conlon.
