Great advice, "remove your engine". Oh I'll
Lift it off and row it ashore in my dinghy shall I?!

Doh! Can't even do that as the Dinghy we bought last season was stolen within 10 days from being put on the beach.

Does any one on the forum have any experience with using or recommending a tracking type device?
there appears to be products that supposedly alert you via GPS & mobile phone if its moved out of a pre designated area.
thanks

Just got a Garmin GTU 10. Check them out!!! Tiny, operated from iPhone or on line, no sim needed. Can last 4 wks on battery or permanently on direct feed. Size of a matchbox. Up to 10 Geofence areas. Awesome piece of kit. Can be put in rucksacks, on pets..... Or boats!
