Boat Security

Hi All,

The staff at Cowes Yatch Haven are very good at looking after your pride and joy. As I understand it there are security staff on duty day & night plus security camera's. I hope that this puts your mind at ease.

However, if some "Scrote" really wants to take a boat he will, regardless of any security devices fitted. It is just pure bad luck.

See you all soon only 7 weeks to go!

Regards

Well contrary to the 'experts' opinion (and I' being sarcastic here having had a bottle of 1995 port just now) there is no way that you can secure a RIB or a boat unless it is in a secure area i.e. a guarded marina and that is doubtful too.
If you use a pad lock (even SS) it can brake if the thief has a freezing spray. You spray the lock and with a small hummer it can cramble like sand.
The only way to secure your boat (RIB or anything else) is to have it properly insured for theft in any situatiuon marina, mooring, pontoon etc and hope that if you leave it overnight it will nor ber stollen
Now the 'experts' will give me -100000 reputation points but what the heck this is ONLY A VIRTUAL WORLD and nothing means anything any way

I imagine this "freezing spray" doesn't come in an aerosol can for obvious reasons!!

What exactly is it though, liquid nitrogen (-321F) will freeze a flower, sausage, wart on the end of your nose etc, that will then crumble into dust when whacked, but steel, hmm not so sure about that.

You can laugh about it but believe it or not this is the way That Albanians steal RIBs and boats in Greece and Italy DD with freezing spray
Don't know how it works or what it is but that's the way is done!

PS Just an observation and although I Know that you are in diffrent trades (the world is VERY small), Is amassing that u and Fuller are on at the same time isn't it?
