These all are sensible precautions but the reality is you`ll NEVER stop a determined thief.

My best suggestion is keep your boat out of sight when stored, but I`d also put all sensible precautions you can on it, and have a good insurance policy!

Lots of good points on this thread. My 2p's worth.

Make your security unusual if you can.
Have it howl really loud if there's tampering with your boat
Keep it to yourself.
Never have your post code displayed on your boat. It would take 2mins on the internet to find out where you live.
Look into tracking YOU have complete charge of. No reliance on others.

If you are really worried and have a spare 600.00 fit a GPS tracking system......

ie, the boat tells you where it is......

If they want it they will take it.

As CJL says ,at the end of the day if a decent theif wants to take your boat he will, no matter what lengths you go to in securing it.They do not need to read this forum to get tips. You are only going to stop the little oppertunist scroats. Good insurance cover is my advice.
