Pretty wild, about two days later I was pulling out of work and saw this second one at the launch ramp. Almost identical in size but this one had two motors. I'll attach a photo.
I thought most of these never made it to sale but there's a guy on bloodydecks selling one right now with 2 brand new yamaha 4 strokes. Evidently he was contacted by LEO to remove this off a beach, instead of paying him they said he could keep the boat and motors. He sold one already, but has two other motors he's selling on this panga. I guess in this case, the motors aren't stolen, they were bought by the cartel and are expendable as they knew they would have to dump the boat once it hit california and they made the drug transfer. https://www.bdoutdoors.com/forums/threads/35ft-panga-boat-for-sale-with-two-yamaha-300hp.763400/
I'll tell you, a few years ago when it got really bad locally I was super sketchy about taking my boat out and diving at night along the coast. Mainly because I was thinking it would be super easy for smugglers to jump ship if their boat was having problems.
