Stolen Parks and Rec Boat Recovered in Saverton


(Saverton, Mo)—A Hannibal Parks and Recreation work boat reported stolen has turned up downriver. Director Andy Dorian says the boat taken from the marina was found at Lock and Dam 22…

“Sometime last Friday evening (7-19), someone cut our marina work boat–a boat we built out of leftover docks…a fairly good sized work boat.  Somebody cut it loose–we don’t know if they were attempting to steal it, or if its an act of pure vandalism, but they pushed it out in the river.  Tuesday, we were alerted by the Hannibal Police Department that they had found it; it actually was wedged up against the dam in Saverton.”

Dorian says the boat sustained considerable damage, but the loss could have been worse…

“It was a steel frame with floats and wood decking, and it had a tool box with tools in it.  All the wood was gone and also the tool box with the tools.  The frame and floats, we were able to salvage.  Luckily, we had an issue earlier in the week with our boat motor–so it was at Jack’s Harbor Marine; so it wasn’t on the boat at the time.”

Repairs to the boat are already underway.  Dorian puts the cost to repair the boat at between one and two thousand dollars.
