Before you walk away from the boat you blip the key fob, the box of tricks on the boat beeps and the engine is immobilised.
Apparently the only way to override it is a new ECU/Control module.... probably still cheaper than an engine though, admittedly.
Hopefully Yamaha would demand some form of proof of ownership before supplying such parts....
