good investment id say (if i was a RIB thief that is)
I think all you can do is slow them down as much as possible and hope they get seen or disturbed before they get through all your security.
My trailer will be chained to the wall with a chain that is too thick to cut with hand bolt crops, it will have a wheel clamp and locking wheel nuts, another chain secures the area where its parked and the hitch will have a hitch lock.
Add to that a security light so that anyone trying to get all that off will be under a 500W flood light and im just hoping that someone will spot them before they get the boat away.
At the end of the day there are not many security devices that an 18V cordless angle grinder with a steel cutting disc wont get through in a few minutes.
