Just as an aside to this hideous tale, who's insurance company picks this up? The owners or the yard?

depends on how the business has set up its cover for 'goods in trust' and the amounts. I would expect the individual boat policies to cover it as the yard has taken 'reasonable precautions' to protect the kit so is not liable, but as i say may have paid to cover its customers goods while in its custody or control..........

not sure that this the answer to a maiden's prayer but.

Essex Police - Marine watch are promoting this as a possible deterrent of use to some folks......

" January 2010


Dear Marine Watch Member,

As we approach another sailing/boating season, I would like to bring to your attention the ESSEX POLICE outboard engine cover, this is part of our crime prevention strategy to tackle the growing problem of outboard engine thefts. We are selling a new product which is an engine cover to replace your existing cowling while it is left unattended.

There are three sizes available to fit either up to 10HP, 10 40HP ( we have fitted it on a 90HP Mariner) and 40 70HP ( we have fitted it on a 130HP Mercury) engines. The cover is to replace the outboard cowling which we advise you to mark overtly and permanently with your address / vessel details inside the cowling and take it home with you when you are not using the boat. The cover is then slipped on over the engine and secured with a pull tight rope and further secured with an adjusting strap and buckle along with the facility to lock the strap on with a padlock. The engine cannot be used with the replacement cover in place. The cover has ventilation ports to allow moisture to disperse. The simple locking point is designed to help to reduce casual vandalism and the chances of it being damaged or lost due to severe weather conditions.

The concept is to reduce the attractiveness of your outboard engine to a thief be devaluing it by removing the cowling, as it is likely to cost at least 250 to replace it, depending on the size or make of engine. The result will be that it is less likely to be stolen, if it is we will have a better chance of conviction as once the criminal has begun to source a new cowling an evidence trail will develop. Working with local marinas and manufacturers we have a better chance of detection.

Prices
Small 13.00 Essex Police Marine Unit
Large 13.25 49-51 Station Road
Extra Large 35.00 Burnham on Crouch
Essex. CMO 8HF
01621 782121
Postage and Packing from 5

What a simple and clever idea. Even with the old rib sat on the driveway, had i have thought about it, I would have done this. Thank fully in over 3 years no problems.

I dont know if this will be possible with the new rib, but will certainly see if its possible.

Good thinking with those lovely verados Steve, a couple of those went missing from the hamble not long ago...
