Noob: Brig 650

Hi all,

First time owner but years of loving boats. Just awaiting delivery Of a Brig 650 with Suzuki 140hp and have a few questions to get a few things sorted before she arrives:

1) what’s the average trailer immobiliser / clamp / hutch lock that folk recommend.

2) is there a recommended engine lock

I appreciate they’re all relatively easily removed, but need deterrent and satisfy an insurance company.

Speaking of which, who’s a good broker to use for insurance?

Many thanks and see you in the forums!
Regards
Pete

Just to clarify, it is Alan and Thomas....And yes they are great.

I just bought a nemisis fullstop and it is a pita to get on, but it certainly is solid no question. I might sell mine actually as I don't really want to be faffing about with it after a long day on water.

Craftinsure we have 4 boats in the family insured with them and have had to make 3 claims and every one handled perfectly
In my opinion untill you need to claim you dont know how good an insurance company is
Your also dealing direct rather than through a broker so you always get to speak to the correct person

I use a Nemisis and once you've put it on and off a few times I think it's less hassle than the other types I've used. It is heavy but at least it doesn't come off with a couple of kicks with a rigger boot.

I use Porthcawl for insurance and no complaints. Handled claims without any issues.
