eBay it is then! Cheers Tim for helping me assemble the tools so I can go nick your boat

This discussion seems to have focused mainly on chains, what about padlocks? Presumeably there is no point having a sooper dooper chain if the padlock is a christmas cracker job. I've put master padlocks on the 2 boats I've done security for, good or bad?

Going off thread ever so slightly - what sort of cost is a portable generator

All types and all costs. First of all settle for the power you want.
Then ask your self do i need a quiet one or a noisy one. Honda do a very quite 4 stroke - but much more expensive than a Briggs & Stratton.Mine cost me about 200 quid 3 years ago. Weighs about 40 kgs. and you can just about slug it around

I like your thinking and that is the operative word ‘thinking’ most thieves wouldn’t thieve if they had the brains to do something else….. what they would do is set up a government and thieve us leagally via our income tax

PS the inverter is only really 400w so might struggle If you want a real P22 type gringer you want one of These

Jimbo - I think everything gets carried a bit too far in these disscusions.
I had the pleasure of meeting Jono some time ago and a more pleasant and entertaining person you could not hope to meet.

I dont know why people become so aggressive on this site.I think we should all stand back a bit sometimes and cool down. I have been on this site for over a year now and have had immense pleasure , learnt alot and still learning. I have found the best way to treat Codders is not contradiction but
kindness and generosity. He even might come out on my rib....

Jonathan
at what point you become so concerned about the feelings and emotional wellbeing of people on this forum - first time i came accross you on this forum you launched an attack on me telling me i was bald and needed to go to weight watchers. (which i probably do - but thats besides the point).

What's reliability like on your honda? I'll do an ebay search and most likely end up buying whatever looks like a bargain, so it's all fairly academic anyway...

I'd still like to hear opinions on padlocks too

I was talking to the bloke at Calshot about secruity the other day. As he pointed out, most of the people that knick big boats like RIBs are profestional criminals who know what they are doing. If they intend to knick your boat they will. There was that case about a year ago when all those jet-skis got knicked from a yard - they used a lorry with a hi-ab to lift them still on their trailers.

The main advantage I can see from using beefy looking chains and locks is that its going to put any prospective theif off trying to knick it in the first place.

Cant beat it. First pull and off you go. Like everything they do - its invarably first class- but you pay the price. Its like SONY-they dont have bad products.
If only Rover hadnt done the dirty on Honda??? ( come on Codders!)
Padlocks ?what's that ? they dont knick things where I live. Did you know that in Toronto very few people lock their houses??
