Outboard bolt lock?

Evening all,

With the exciting purchase of a new engine (150hp Optimax pro XS) I will need to get a lock to secure it to the transom.
I can't use the existing one as it was fitted in 2005, never been off and has been wet on and off during the period. I think it will be a real fight to get it off!

Can anyone recommend me a good bolt lock?

Thanks for the reminder, I knew there was one other thing I needed for when I fit my engine.

Not that it stops the Kerrs Pinks around here, they just take a chainsaw to the transom
