Following the news of a life-saving vessel stolen from NSRI Strandfontein on False Bay, we have an update on the story.

Police are investigating whether a JetSki found completely burnt out in the Blikkiesdorp area in Delft is infact the same JetRIB that was stolen approximately 20 KM away from that site at NSRI Station 16 Strandfontein.

It appears the burnt out JetRIB has had its engine removed and very little remains of the hull.

Based on the colour of the hull as well as the distinct keel strip NSRI believe that this is in fact their JetRIB which appears to have been stolen and the trailer and engine is still missing.

The NSRI is again appealing to the public for any one with information regarding the stolen JetRIB to please come forward and contact the NSRI on 087 094 0974 or

A BIG vote of thanks to the whole of Cape Town community and those supporters of the NSRI who helped to put the word out and be eyes and ears on the ground we appreciate their concern.
