Police hunt for stolen rescue boat … but what colour is it?

Police have called for public assistance finding a rescue boat, stolen at Port Melbourne.

But the colour of the boat has sparked debate on 3AW Breakfast.

Police believe the offenders used a white ute to break through a fence of a Lorimer Street marine facility between 1.30 and 2am on August 28.

They then used the ute to remove an inflatable rescue boat, with motor attached, and its trailer.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 00 or submit a confidential crime report at

Ross thinks it’s green, while Burnso is adamant the boat is white.
