At the boat yard i worked at we had to resort to "vandalising" a load of brand new merc engines on our day boats to make them unattractive to thieves. Its amazing how bad you can make a brand new engine look with a tin of Focus cornflower blue gloss paint thinned with petrol and some marina stickers.

Hope the culprits get caught.
I am usually not as green as i am cabbage looking.
