RCMP look for fleet of stolen power­boats

Medicine Hat News - - COMMUNITY - WEST -

EDMONTON Al­berta RCMP are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the theft of a fleet of brightly coloured power­boats that were last seen be­ing towed on trail­ers by pickup trucks down a ru­ral prairie high­way.

The four boats are all Nau­tique Su­per Air G23s — a craft pop­u­lar with peo­ple who en­joy wake­board­ing and wakesurf­ing.

The com­pany that makes them calls the Nau­tique “a leg­end in the water­sports world.”

Cpl. Lau­rel Scott says the thieves made off with the boats and trail­ers early Wed­nes­day morn­ing from a deal­er­ship south of Edmonton.

The trucks haul­ing the seven-me­tre long boats were last seen on High­way 39 driv­ing east over a land­scape bet­ter known for canola and wheat fields than bod­ies of wa­ter.

The boats and trail­ers are es­ti­mated to be worth $800,000.
