RIBase
I've fitted the Yamaha lock to my boat. Solid enough and finished in stainless steel. A determined boat thief will still be able to remove it - I'm convinced.
Remember to thoroughly grease the key-lock or it will weld itself shut with salt spray. Okay until such time as you need to remove the engine for any reason.

Call me paranoid, but I've fitted a triple-hitch-lock on the Roller-Coaster trailer, a wheel clamp, the garage is alarmed and has additional Yale shoot bolts.

They (fulton locks) also seem to rust fairly quickly - 1 season with this on my aux and it's falling apart....

Ive got one fitted. Same as a Mcgard i think.

http://www.mcgardlocks.co.uk/prodtyp...cordPosition=1

Mines fitted aswell as the original nut. Original nylok then the Locking nut. Probably get at it with a good nut splitter?

Better than nothing and you will need one for your insurance.

Ive datataged and micro dotted mine also.

Am considering etching/ engraving some parts also.

Nthing will stop the determined thief with an angle grinder!!! I used the suzuki product from brownspiont which satisfied my insurance broker, delivery for small items is usually about a week.

How does import duty and tax look on Brownspoint items? They seem to have lots of useful stuff I can't find online in the UK.
