I never heard of motors having to be titled. Our boats have to be titled.

Borrow or buy a couple trail cams. They are reasonably priced today for decent ones. We keep four of them at the camp. Nothing expensive is kept there now since we pulled our off road stuff out of there

How does the saying go, the guy with the most toys...... gets robbed the most! Sorry that's happened to you, the trail cam suggestion is both legal and helpful. Knowing who stole from you is always hurtful but seems to help the good for nothing people our taxes pay to protect and SERVE us.

I dont think it has much to do with theft recovery(there are lots of ways around ID tags and vin plates)it has lots to do with missouri;s tax and fee the crap out of you problem,They make you register the boat ,motor and trolling motors separate(3 times the money that way),we have double taxation forced on us each year when you register your car.They have your property tax like everybody does then they have whats called a personal property tax ,It is a tax on your vehicles (based on the year) and on tools ,,livestock, campers,boats ,motorcycles,,everything you own for the most part it seems can be taxed(you know that nice shop I have,,,ya your suppose to pay tax on every tool in it every year,They tax you for everything here,Dont sneeze there is probably a booger tax!If yu like chickens and you have a small flock for meat or eggs in your back yard you have to pay a tax for them,its ridiculous .I used to live in wisconsin and never paid most of the taxes they have here ,they even tax food,never had that in wisconsin!Combine that with the low wages the companies pay and the poor people of missouri tend to stay that way.I hope and am planning to finish the remodel on my house over the next year then I plan to sell it all and my shop and move either to iowa or maybe back to wisconsin ,I dont like it here much at all,Neither does my wife or the kids that are still living at home.But we need to do a bunch of research on some other states too,as this move will be my last.We like mid to northern Iowa(by my oldest daughter and her boyfriend) but want to look around too,We know all about wisconsin and all our families are in southern wis so we may do that but houses are quite expensive most places there

In Ohio we have low taxes. Wv has personal property tax, I lived in pa for awhile and it was tax heavy with local and township taxes.

They are always out to get you one way or another.

Central Wisconsin, same red state ya know and love plus cheap houses and property. The higher you go the better the price! My taxes on 8 acres and a 2400 sq. ft. home are half what my Illinois taxes were on the same house and 1/4 acre.

You need to find the Kid and beat his *$@&^%! Has to be a kid that has it in for you or some kid with an old Suburban.Deck belt and now a 3 point arm.Sheesh


I agree with Eric sounds like someone wants to aggravate you. I know a belt & lift arm is important & would be to me too but to a thief...something missing here. I have absolutely very little mercy for a thief...shot at three late one night several years ago. Hope things get better for you. It sounds like your trying to make a good living & doing things right. Don't get discouraged. My son keeps a lot going on in his life....good stuff. I just told him the other day be thankful you have so many opportunities because folks that don't have problems are the ones that sit at home all day, don't work, have no ambition, don't have anything & don't care about anything or anybody. Hang in there friend.

Call the Police on his butt.You have to draw a line somewhere even with "friends or even family".I suspect it will only get worse untill you do.You might come out and find slashed tires or worse next time.

Was telling a buddy today about this thread, and you know how us guys are when we get BSing? He said about ten years ago he noticed he had some firewood missing off his wood pile, then a couple fishing rods and reels from his lean too. So, the guy he is, (no mercy) he loaded up some plywood with roofing nails, and covered them with leaves...

Never had another thieving problem. :oh_shucks:

That seems to be a pretty specific item to steel.

Lots of thieving going on in Alberta too.  Acreages and small farms getting hammered.  Seem to have no fear.  I have been lucky lost couple of things over the last 20 years.  Now sheds all have padlocks house and garage locked up tight.  Motion sensor lights.

Guess im lucky, never had anything stolen....

Funny story though....

Back when i was a senior in high school i had a 83 F150. I always left my keys in it at home because, well, i didnt think anyone would want it.

One saturday morning i woke up and had to run to town to get some line for my fishing pole, out the door i go, and i look...my truck is gone.

After cussing a few times on the porch i went in to call the police to report it, i grab my cell phone and right as im dialing the number my close friend (almost like a brother) calls, i answered it and he proceeds to tell me how his truck broke down 2 miles or so from my house, he couldnt get a hold of anyone so he hoofs it to my house and takes my truck, cause he knew the keys would be in it.

"Didnt think youd mind" he says.

Truthfully, i didnt, but leave a damn note next time.

Yep an't gonna stop any where, that's the sad state this country is in, last month I lost 1snowblower tire and gas cap, by the time I realized it my running snowblower was full of water, last week I get home and my neighbor Say's he caught someone taking down my gate 5min.s after I left in a FLATBED truck, he said they sounded like they we're my friends and told them to come back when I was home, I told him to call the cop's next time and get the plate number, this was broad daylight(of course they never came back), behind on work and trying to get ready for winter I find myself draining water and shoring up the property for our never ending season of thievery
