This is very worrying ..... My boat lives in a compound in the portsmouth area ......I only use a wheel clamp ..... can anyone suggest what extra measures one can take to protect ones assets..... obviously i'm insured and i have an engine bolt lock ..... Im thinking it must be worth chaining the engine skeg to the trailer ....

THere are not a lot of things you can do to deter a these guys. Wheel clamps will be off within seconds tow hitches can also be dealt with in short order. Outboard motor locks can be angle grinded off in seconds or they will just use a chainsaw on the transom.

I reckon the only option with any substance is keeping your boat out of sight which unfortunately is not a viable option for many of us.

Mines stored in a container - damn tight getting it in and out but means I can use a heavy duty padlock on the outside with just an engine lock on the boat.

Able to lock the boat to the container if I feel the need, but I don't as it's one in a yard of many.

Will only suit boats narrower than 7 ' 10" but that does me fine
