hey codders

the chains are not thatcham approved or sold secure which is why abit cheaper and did not sell except to yourself,
for insurance purposes is best to have thatcham approved or sold secure items and they cost the big bucks

let matey loose on your chains and my soldsecure items and we would see which goes quickest!!!!!!!

ok i spoke with the guy that sold your chains to you, seems like a decent enough chap and he is shifting these chains at cost price which is good enough. if they are 12mm items gold series then they are indeed sold secure and thatcham approved as well.

some thinner chains that are old stock are not sold secure or thatcham approved

i will find out soon as i have ordered 3 of them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, but are for bikes not boats!!!!!!
cheers

I've read this thread from begining to end and two things stick out;

1) Several monkeys out there honestly think it is worth spending 130 notes on a chain which will be chopped in 2 or 3 secs by a determined theif! (Yes there are people out there with hydralic cutting gear just like the fire brigade or just cutting disks! )

2) Paranoia - net.... Now that I like! It adequately describes certain people on this forum!

My advice, hide the bl**dy thing!

You can't find it, you cant nick it!

But, Edgar Alan Poe said the best place to hide something was in an obvious place, i.e. hide a letter in a letter rack. So, maybe the best place to hide a specific RIB is amongst 100 others!

Mine is well hidden and cannot be seen from the road. But the weak point is, that someone has probably seen it go in and out....

Not very well hidden now.

i believe that taking steps to minimise the opportunists ability to make off with your toys can only be a good thing


however if someone wants what you have got then most security can be hacked.

however making sure you meet the security requirements of the insurance is paramount if you are to be remunerated for your loss and not let them dodge thru loopholes

I totally agree when on a trailer. It's the manacling them to the marina that i find crazy. No insurance company that I've ever used have asked for it. I have enough trouble remembering the ignition key let alone umpteen bloody padlock keys! Be radical guys, tie 'em up with a bit of rope. You never know, they might still be there the next day.
