I agree - but play the game = not your loss even if they chop up the boat to get the engine OR don't play along with the insurance company requirements = take the risk yourself. If you can afford a new engine then great - but otherwise stick the lock on it and hope it puts the buggers off, and if not at least its not at least you can argue your case with the insurers.

its a bit like forgetting to lock your car. Who would admit that to the insurance company .

Yes there was a lock on there , the thieves must have cut it off is all most people would say .

However it is a wriggle point for the insurance .

Bit like the horrible alarm on my motorbike , the common cause of breakdown but the insurance say i must have one although nobody ever takes any notic e of alarms.

I've got one of these-far simpler. Same principle as a locking wheelnut. A lot cheaper than the Volcano too.

That looks far better to me . the simple solutions are always the best.



I think the suzuki one is just packaged for suzuki

Have fun . Cut well down the cone to get below the groove that the balls lock into .

I did wonder if you put a wedge behind it it may just jamb the nut head so you can turn the nut off, depends how tight your nut is

Mine was fitted with the nut on the motor side , a nut splitter may do the job if you can get it on there .
I considered the nut and bolt worth more than the poxy lock and I didn't want to damage the paint on the motor .

Worst part was all the rusting filings that get on the boat, despite covering it up.
