Anti Theft & Risk Reducing Measures
Hi, As a first time boat owner I just took delivery of a new Excel 390 and Suzuki 20hp. Because it's new it will be a magnet for the light fingered fraternity when moored during our summer vacation.. I will insure it but also want to make life as hard as possible for anyone who would relieve us of the pleasure this boat will bring.
Is swopping the plug leads a good idea? Is there any way to incorporate a hidden kill switch or portable GPS tracker? What about stencilling the boat and what info would you put and where?
I have a cover to keep the rain out but what accessories (oars, bow canopy etc) would you take with you and what would you leave? Is an engine cover worthwhile? What is the best transom lock to buy?
Any ideas are much appreciated, thanks!
