So you get the same thing with boats. A yard with 10 ribs will be targeted just like a caravan storage place might. Make sure yours doesn't look the best on site...

But I bet you don't hear of many campervans being nicked while the owner has nipped to to dunny... Yet I guess plenty leave the keys in etc.

It really depends on where you dock your boat.
Where I live we have a dedicated dock for dingy/tender/rib/sib
As long as you dock there while you are eating you are ok.
I would never try it at night
I also have an outboard lock on my outboard and I take my kill cable with me.

For those that want to know
This is the Annapolis city dock in downtown Annapolis Maryland. U.S.A
It is down the street from the Naval Academy
Anything larger than 17 feet faces major docking fees
17 feet and under is free

Hi there

Like you I did wonder about security at first, but have never had a problem up here or on the west coast... at first though it does seem like a lot of cash to leave just tied up with a bit of rope!

That said I do hide the ignition key and leave the AIS running for tracking, but that's as much for peace of mind and people messing about rather than any protection from intentional theft. I have an outboard lock on as that was a condition of the insurance.

Amazes me how canal boats in quite busy town areas seem to do OK too.

All told good to have such a trusting environment :o)

Steve

Removing the fuel hose is a great idea

But you will get odd looks carrying one to the pub! I've always been more worried about someone just nicking the fuel tank.

Using a SIB as a mode of transport

I use it as a straw, don't have to move an inch
