Just fitting locks to mine now . Best suggestion I have is take some pics of the the lock in place on the boat & send it to insurers - that way they already have the proof if the worst happens . I do this with all of this stuff & keep a copy with the insurance docs at home as well.

I dont want to get into taking the bolts out of the transom ( after 4 years of being in there) so ordered 2 of the type Nos recommended ( thanks for the link ) then realised they may not fit the bolts on the big Opti ! If they get here & dont fit watch out for them at a knock down price on here .
