RIB security measures

What do you use to stop your pride and joy being nicked? Are there any products which give good insureance discounts? Also with the number of RIBS being stolen are there any tracking devices which can be used - would a car one be suitable?

If You do a search there was a thread about a year ago on this, with options noted inc a good package, unfortunatly we didn'tt get rnough numbers together to make it viable if I remember.

Insurance

I have just been sorting out insurance. They have requested outboard lock,trailer clamp and chain to post as a minimum while I had done this already for my own benefit there was no discount for it. I got the outboard lock at LBS if you want the details give me a call. The rest came from local locksmith.

is it based on the same system used by securicor and the like for when they
move money around,if so you can still rob them by using something that disrupts the signal i won't post what it is on here but it should be checked first as a clever thief will still be able to take your boat. if it is not based on this system i would like to know more for my boats
