Got one and I pay for sim top ups.

https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tk102b-SPY-...-/282623112351

Worth the money is subjective to how much value you put on the rib but it is quite cheap with the right sim payg deal and a tracker from eBay. If you don't want it for a few months then don't top up the sim

I have read the guys into serial stealing have blockers so it wouldn't do sod all potentially but that is same argument as don't lock your doors as they will only smash a window anyway. It only needs to be harder to steal than the boat next to it for your casual scumbag. If the pros want it then it is gone anyway.

thanks for that.
i agree that if they want your stuff then they will have it. i presume they would want it to sell so its in the scumbags interest to look after it so traking could be a good way to go. i dont think theres a point in advertising that you have a tracker as there aint that many places to hide one on a rib so if they knew one was fitted i presume they would soon find it and remove/trash it. ???
thanks for your imput
james.

The chances are if it is stole to sell then it is you going to be in a container within hours and a gps blocker used so your tracker will do nothing. If it works then Brucey bonus. Worst case I know the marina have moved my boat around

Whilst I won't say where mine is they would need to do some serious dismantling to get to it. I paid 35 quid for one and no power required obviously.

So, make the boat visibly harder to steal with a wheel clamp, hitch clamp and maybe chain, park next to a boat with none of those and you have done all you can.

Microchip is also worth doing as customs may scan it before leaving.

I moved you beside me earlier mate, we are all good. Jambo will have his ribcraft in soon if not already so you will be good too soon! If his tubes are fixed now then you are knackered again! It is all those shiney new seats and axle that has done you.
