Island Dog, I'm sorry to hear they have not found your cart. I hate to use your experience as an example but it could help a lot of other people.
FOLKS, if you are buying or currently own a cart I highly recommend that you put a fitted key ignition in your cart. If you don't you are leaving yourself wide open. Everyone on the island has a standard cart key. Cost: I don't remember exactly, but about 100.00BZ will buy & get the ignition installed. Electric carts ignitions are cheaper I believe. I have a gas cart. It's worth every penny people. Mine had a fitted key ignition right after I drove it off the lot. Captian Sharks carries them, but specify gas or electric. Protect yourself, 100.00BZ is cheap insurance in my opinion.
I picked Island Dog up the morning after he got ripped off on foot downtown passing out reward posters. His story was that he went in a store to buy butter & was gone less then 3 minutes & it was gone. He took the keys out but it was not locked up. Mistake number two, it had brand new battery's in it. Someone knew it or raised the seat & saw them. That will get one ripped off in a minute.
Good luck, Dog, I hope they find it. If they do I can almost assure you the battery's will be gone. When you buy new bats go the extra distance & get a fitted ignition installed at the same time.
