Scum have returned , never noticed this morning, but had a call from the wife at work mid day.
Police had called round neighbours complaining of. A loud noise and some weird commotion, early hrs, asking what was a do, wife said never heard a thing nor did our dog bark, now he's nuts at the drop of a pin,,, So I shrugged it off as one of my neighbours having a domestic or sumat,


But, when I came home things was not as left font of boat propped up real high, its a twin wheeled tailer, front set of wheels of the floor, guess which wheel had the clamp on, the red plastic cover was removed from my hitch lock,, now I know what the noise was , can not beleive I never heard any thing,,,



This was the noisy end,, Vessel is finally being stored at work, 24 her security and 3. Cute dog,s to assist in removal of any pond life

being illuminated may deter them.

3 lights on house and an inbuilt wall lamp at end of drive where my hitch is, in all honestly, my drive is not the easiest to get a boat on and off , if there is another vehicle on the drive, dam near impossible infact, sure there rolling it forward to remove the engine,

I think I would try pinning your dogs nuts to the wheel clamp so as to concentrate his attention!

Seriously though sorry to hear of the problems. My workshop door took a battering over the weekend, looked like a half hearted attempt but i'm preparing some "additional security" in case of a return visit!

Henry Krank sells some cool alarm mines. The cartridges are black powder so big flash and smoke as well as a loud bang. You could set them up in a couple of ways to be triggered no matter what they do.

why are the blank cartridges for that twice the price of 'live' or game rounds?

Guess they don't sell many. You wouldn't use them up quickly.
