  • Stolen Mastercraft

    Hi All,

    I have a travesty to report. Some of you might have read about a Mastercraft jump boat I found in a barn in south central Wisconsin. (for those who are unfamiliar, 12' long, outboard. ie, caddy shack and Tommy Bartlett boats). I had it repainted with candy red and white metal flake paint. I took it to a Corvette specialist as he promised me a flawless job on fiberglass. Engine was not yet mounted and hull had no VIN. Was stolen OFF OF a trailer on Saturday night. It is an original design which should be easy to tell. One wide 3 foot stripe front to back(red on white), both topside and hull with 4 large white stars both top and bottom. Side graphics feature 'disco-esque' 'Mastercraft' which is not dissimilar to original. Custom interior is one bench seat, seating two with micro-stitched stars (red on pearl). HAS MERCURY throttle pillar and wiring harness...was 8 hours from being mated with outboard. If anyone in the midwest sees a jump boat, please see if this matches my description. I worked very hard and put dozens of hours into it. Please contact me if anything is seen. Jason 773.354.4127

    That SUCKS!

    Where did you have it when it was stolen? I assume you called the police- have you called any boat dealers for a heads up yet?

      Do you have any pictures? Will help to know what we are watching for.

      I hope you get the boat back!

            Man that blows. It would be like a dream to find a boat like that in a barn. Must be like a nightmare to have it taken like that. I hope you recover your boat. Would be nice to catch the responsible party also.

                Jason, I hate that for you. It should be an easy one to spot though as those are pretty rare these days. Hope you find her!

                To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

                    That really really stinks! I'll keep an eye out here also.

                    I wonder if you could send a mass-emailing to MC dealerships around the country? Just a thought.
                    If one day you're asked:
                    " How did you spend your time here on Earth?"
                    Will you say:
                    "I kept a crabgrass free lawn"
                    It's time to SKI.

                      I would be checking with the DNR to see if anyone tries to register a boat like this. Call as many dealers as you can. Explain your situation and see if they'll help with contacting other dealers. Also, check around to see if there are any boat dealers with a reputatiuon for shady dealings. If you hear that anyone is trying to buy a motor for a boat like this, it'll sound suspicious.

                      Was the boat still in the posession of the fiberglass shop? Do you know the people well who work there or own it?

                          In reading your last phrase,i remember something funny about this story when he did bring the boat to the fiberglass shop...Just can't find the thread in the old board.
                          ..."Old Mastercraft in the barn" i think.

                            Jim, I believe that you were referring to the 250LB daughter that the guy was trying to hook me up with. Then there was the gag reflex, followed by my comments about how she looked like a bratwurst glistening in the above-ground pool. Anyhoo, I got some good news for now.

                            Someone called a Mastercraft dealer in Madison, Redline, I believe and asked what the motor capacity was for a 12' fiberglass Mastercraft outboard. The guy at the dealership told him that he would have to look into that and would get back.

                            Lesson for your aspiring criminals; DO NOT GIVE YOUR PHONE NUMBER TO ANYONE WHEN DEALING WITH STOLEN GOODS. Anyway, as I had asked 100+ people that same question, I believed that this might be an issue. I got a call and turned it over to local county sheriff's office. I guess the guy is a career vehicle theif but they have not gotten the boat back yet. Hoping and praying I am. Thanks for the consolation everyone.

                            I actually got flowers from my mom...
