It’s been rumoured that they are an eastern European gang and no job is too big or small.
Hence I need advice; the only way I see to secure your outboard is with a locking device secured to an external object the ground or heavy object.
Any suggestion or ideas welcome?
It's not very constructive to say it, but if they want it that badly, they'll take it. Just make sure there's no reason insurance can refuse to pay out and hope.
By all means fit a tracker, but be aware the solely GSM type work on a rough triangulation to the nearest repeater stations. They have a huge variance in accuracy unless in a city-and if it's in a garage it could be anywhere within several streets. Some quote a 6 mile radius in the country.
Obviously if it's got it's own inbuilt GPS receiver it's different.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
