Stolen boat located

Sometime in July someone posted a boat had been stolen in Portage WI
Its listed on Madison WI Craigslist

Nice looking stolen boat.

That’s interesting. It was stolen in WI as it was being transported by a third party to Texas at the owner’s request, and now the person who has it is in Texas and is coming right back to where it was stolen to sell it. This is quite weird and makes me think it was recovered by the original owner who is now selling it. The photos in the ad are the same ones used to advertize it as stolen.

New marketing technique?

How do we know it’s the stolen boat?
