Even if there is one that's reliable, if they want the boat they'll either crop the chain or release the nuts on the D ring.

Barstewards!

SURENUFF...The advent of Cordless Angle grinders/cutters is a big problem.They've tried to outlaw them in some places Stateside...Like you can put the Gennie back in the bottle!!All you can hope to protect yourself from these days is the 'Casual Oppertunist' thief.
Take the precautions you can,....and get a good Insurance policy.

ZONE padlocks

As above: Zone Padlocks are stainless in various sizes with no steel spring like some cheaper imitations.

I have used these on store boxes that are left in the sea and they are great. Occasional blast of silicon helps but not essential.
