+1 for the lock being fitted when I bought the boat! I'd better take more photos! I already have photos of the wheel lock and the hitch lock, but I didn't think to photo the motor lock.

Incidentally, when I got the boat I got a bunch of keys with it. The key with the same badge on it as the lock (a Yamaha lock) doesn't seem to fit the lock at all - and the keyhole is rotated to the bottom of the lock with no play in the lock to rotate it round for me to get a proper look!

Gutted for you!

Might be worth registering your loss on www.immobilise.com - a national database that police and second-hand traders can use to check items. Another something useful is www.smartwater.com - "The liquid carries a forensic ‘code’ which is registered to an address or location. Once applied it is almost impossible to remove and can only be seen under UV light. Forensic analysis provides conclusive proof of ownership."

Good luck with the insurance, let us know how you get on.

There's also this one which is boat specific for lost/stolen boats/engines:

StolenBoats.org.uk :: Free directory of Stolen Boats :: Boat Insurance :: Marine Security

It's linked to the Police and is a national database of stolen items.

Sorry to hear that mate, you must be gutted. I'm sure all will go well with your insurance claim as you took all the security measures needed.

that's another t shirt I've got, our Honda 150 was stolen a few years ago when less than 12 months old, it had just been serviced so we had all the service records and photos etc to show insurance assessor, they paid out in full fairly quickly and we got a brand new replacement, so there is some hope for you to get a decent payout to replace your engine. One thing I did learn from the experience, the insurance assessor was very keen to know that we had kept the insurance company informed of where the rib was, even if it's left with a dealer for service overnight etc as it's your insurance that the claim is made against, not the dealers, worth bearing in mind!

I would have thought that the claim would be against the dealer Chris.
I suppose you could leave your locking devices with the dealer but you yourself could never prove that they were fitted or not if it ever got knicked or damaged while at the dealers or boat yard.

Also made me think that when we leave our trailers with Chris at Ty Calch because we are tractor launched we can't fit the hitch and wheel clamps. So are we covered for theft or is it down to Chris's insurance

You can go and get it then......

assessor told me that they wanted to see evidence that the required locking devices where fitted, but it's up to you to make the insurance aware of any changes to the insured details, including storage even if temporary, such as servicing/repair, I've done it ever since by email and I always get an acknowledgement by email, so I'm guessing that's want they want. but the claim was definitely against my policy, I'm sure if the insurer thought they could pass it on to the dealers insurance they would have done so, maybe worth the question next time you book in for service etc, better safe than sorry

I asked about a tracker, wasn't a requirement of the policy and no discount, so I haven't gone down that route, but guess there are some options on new engines now so may be worth it for peace of mind

Little discount but be good to get them, especially if a ring of people doing a series of thefts.
