Mooring your sib.

Hi guys sorry to keep bombarding the forum with what may be stupid questions but here's one..........

When you moor up your sib what's the protocol when leaving it unattended, You can't simply lock it up or can you.
I have an outboard lock but what about other stuff in the boat .
If given the opportunity would some unscrupulous people take things out etc. (Nick them).

Is the motto to this question if you don't lock it ....
You'll lose it.

All answers greatly received

Mooring your sib.

All depends where you're going to leave it. Use common sense, remove all loose/valuable stuff, put a cover over the console, double line to the mooring bouy, remove keys, isolate batteries etc. Cross your fingers, make sure your insurance covers you on a mooring.

Very personal thing. In general unless I have full sight of our setup I will take the grab bag that contains the most expensive gear plus dismount the Garmin plotter/sounder. Can't be faffed to remove stuff like LJs, anchor, ropes etc though.

To date I've never left our setup on the water overnight but this year will be a first on our two weeks hols as we'll have a mooring.

Yes folks will steal stuff where a criminal meets opportunity... outboards in particular.

>>>Cross your fingers, make sure your insurance covers you on a mooring.

Yep as PD says... that will have to be our attitude this year.

I won't be leaving it overnight but as you say keep it in sight at all times and take out belongings.

Life jackets.

Most folks have a policy that covers theft and third party liability.

I like to remove the fuel hose to the outboard just for my own peace of mine. At least they won't be getting away quickly! Have heard of others swapping over spark plug leads but that's too much hassle for me.

Thats a good idea to remove fuel hose not thought of that.

I see your in Dorset this where most of my fishing will be done. Were just 10 minutes walk from Wareham on the Frome.

Are you nearby ?

I have an extra main switch that is hard to find. So it would take a while for somebody to breach that. Also have a surveillance camera trained at the dock. And a security blinking light. In water 24/7.
So far no issues. That's pretty good for NYC.
