Towergate always insist on trailer lock (wheel clamp type) or wheels removed from trailer. Other things mentioned by posters are specific policy dependent. 370gbp seems reasonable although always worth asking insurers for a discount, 10% would be quite common in the industry.

As a matter of interest moore288, are thefts of ribs common in Denmark ?

Hi Kerny. I can say that ribs themselves are not that common in Denmark! The thing people have mostly is American sports boats like Montereys. At the risk of re-igniting the debate all the ribs you see are pretty much Brigs. Mostly Navigators. Also the commercial ribs in Scandinavia are often Brigs. And we have just moved to stockholm . Brilliant for ribs and there are a few more here- again quite a few Brigs and some zodiacs. I think Brig have the supply side sown up... Anyway in terms of crime the general levels are lower in these parts but it happens just them same. Most likely if you are a victim is to get your rib towed off to the east of Europe where it is sold or broken up. This is a fast growing crime issue for cars and bikes in Denmark. When the harbour master in DK saw my rib he said to make sure it was locked up, so I guess that says something. They don't really do wheel clamp locks in DK though, as specified by Towergate - so I had to import one. Out here the trailer locks are on the tow hitch. If anyone is planing to bring their rib to Copenhagen or Stockholm let me know, great summer boating and I'd be happy to help them with the practical stuff! Richard

You were a little hard on the console. I reckon that they've done a fair job out of a flip-top bin.
