SCKD has been set up to try and assist in identifying stolen canoes and kayaks and assist in owner recovery. The idea came from an interesting forum post on the UK River and Sea Guidebook website as well as viewing similar sites designed for bicycles after dealing with a personal theft.

Over time it is hoped that the various paddling forums, club websites, paddling shops and manufacturers will all be aware of SCKD and it can be become the focus point for reporting thefts as well a provide  way for paddlers purchasing second hand boats to check if the prospective purchase is stolen.

I welcome any suggestions as to how the site can be developed, promoted and supported.
