West Seattle Crime Watch: Two thefts – aluminum crab boat, white Honda scooter

Two thefts in West Seattle Crime Watch:

STOLEN BOAT: From Christina & Tom:

Late last night someone stole our small crab vessel belonging to the Alki Crab Club from the 2200 block of Alki Ave SW. A small trolling motor and two life vests along with paddles were taken as well. The boat was a Sears 12 foot aluminum boat named “the Sea Beach” painted blue and white with green lettering. Reward for its return to the Alki Crab Club. Thanks! Our neighbor also reports that his paddle board was stolen from his yard last week as well.

STOLEN SCOOTER: Joseph reports this happened Friday night:

1985 Honda Elite 80 scooter taken from the parking strip across from Holy Rosary office. It had been parked in front of Holy Rosary since Tuesday until my mechanic could come out to replace the wheel. He moved it across the street to the parking strip, took the wheel off, and when he went to get a part, it was taken. Steering was locked and the rear wheel was gone.

It’s an old white scooter, missing one of the side mirrors, has collector’s plates. If you see anything, please let me know ASAP – lots more sentimental value than anything else.

    I believe I just saw the sears aluminum boat wedged underneath the dock for the water taxi, on the downtown seattle side. I was late for work so I couldn’t do anything else about it.

      Please call police and report it. Do you mean the downtown side of the Seacrest dock or the dock downtown?

    The boat is under the water taxi dock, in downtown Seattle. I’ll call the police and report it.

      We pinged them with all this too. Thanks as always to everyone who reads WSB and keeps watch for stolen items, lost pets, etc. …

    Did they row that thing to downtown or did it drift?

    Thanks to all who reached out today about our little boat. We are thrilled to have her back home just in time for our visiting guests. It appears people attending SPF30  on Alki decided to use our little boat & motor to ferry themselves to the other side at pier 52. We are so grateful to have our humble little boat back to enjoy. Don’t you just love a happy ending to a story?
