Locking the RIB to the pontoon?

Is there a way of doing this? Do most of you not bother? Thanks.

I think it's an insurance requirement but it's not easy.

Lifting eyes or a frames are the best points on the rib

Insurance companies are all different, so it's worth checking your policy. Most insurers will insist that the engine is locked to the boat and that the trailer is immobilised, but not all will insist that the boat is locked to a mooring.

Of course, it may be prudent to lock it anyway, just in case. A study looking piece of chain and a decent padlock works wonders when the bad guys are looking for easy pickings.

mooring security

I've looked into this as i'm planning on leaving my rib on a drying mooring this season,10mm case hardened chain 120 approx for 10m and stainless high security padlocks @ 35 a pop seems the only safe way to moor her,I intend using a plastic sheathed cable on a pontoon,i KNOW IT SEEMS PARANOID BUT I'VE HAD ONE NICKED ALREADY AND DON'T WANT A REPEAT.Interestingly,the insurance company only seem to get the jitters when the boat sits on a trailer,there is no security stipulation apart from an outboard engine securing bolt lock,so i hope this works.

Where do you find a chain that long - only found them up to about 3m so far!!!

chain supply

I hope this link works http://www.ashleychains.co.uk/html/d...rity_chain.htm
This is the only place i've seen this,they reckon it's completely hacksaw proof and resists boltcropper attack.Our local security supplier says he cuts it to length with an angle grinder so i'm hoping that puts them off on a mooring!!
