When you want to take your boat out for a cruise, few things are as frustrating as when your boat’s motor has been swiped. Happened at La Crosse’s municipal boat harbor just a few days ago. An old outboard stolen off a small houseboat. Owner didn’t have to look far to find it. Apparently turned up on the back of another houseboat in the harbor just a few slips down. The thief spray-painted it black in an apparent attempt to hide it. But the forty year old Chrysler was a little too distinctive to miss. The accused motor thief swears he bought it off some guy named “Red” for fifty bucks.
