Notice yest that I had my license plate stolen, I was at Oakridge. I also notice several other trailers that had no plates. They even took the bracket and the Lic. Plate Light, bang


So keep an eye out

They have cameras on the store parking lot. Might get a car description.

I hope you reported this to the police and to OakRidge.
I can't imagine that someone would have the cajones' to steal license plates
at a busy place like that. I'm guessing this was in broad daylight.

I have never had a problem at Oakridge and feel very comfortable launching and parking there. Thieves for whatever reason do like to help themselves license plates and it happens fairly often. I've lost two in the last four years and it's always at Monticello. Each time it was bracket, light and all. I try to think better of people and really wonder if some of this can be attributed to road hazards or other gremlins at and around boat ramps. Most boat trailer LP brackets along with mine are mounted fairly low to the ground and I can't help but think a fair percentage just get knocked off.

I have really never had a prob there either Brian, but you can see the wires were cut. I will still go there, I know Barry will take care of it.

I have lost a couple both times it was due to backing into the water and getting broken off. I fine you lose a lot less if you put the LP or holder on hinges to swing. I do hate it for you if it did get stolen. I guess they don't want to pay for new ones LOL

I had the plate attached with S Hooks so that kind of thing wouldn't happen

Some folks will steal anything. They need a good whip

I use loose zip ties so it can swing. Guess I will have to watch for a LP thief. WTH do they want used LPs for?

I bet over half of them are from the plastic bracket has broken off. I've had that happen twice. I either use bailing wire or very large zip ties now.

One of the reasons that i use Oak Ridge is that it seems safer. I don't trust any of the public ramps out there. If a thief is motivated enough they will steal anything.
