Scary. My stuff is just in a normal garage with the only "security" being it is buried behind other stuff that looks like worthless clutter. Very few folks locally even know we have a boat and in truth I'd though theft of a SIB from home premises would be a very rare event. It's when on the water left tied to a pontoon I worry the most.

sometime after reading this thread, i saw a truck cruising by my driveway and the dude turned his head to look at the Rib. I was like, "BRO what you lookin at!?" Went outside and slapped the tongue lock on and a 1" chain around the trailer axle to a big tree before heading off to work. She'll Never be taken from me.

It’s one thing having your boat parked outside your house; you can at least keep an eye on it.

Mine is currently parked outside a holiday home 1200 miles away; wheelclamps on both wheels, hitch locked to a towball bolted through the garage wall with bolts welded up. My garage is currently having its access altered to fit the boat in, but at the moment; whenever I go I half expect to see an empty space where it was parked, or at least an empty transom. I figure that I’ve done all I can, and been open and honest with my insurers about how it is stored. If someone wants to take it, they will.

axle stand

I walk passed a boat each day that's parked on a drive with one of the wheels removed from the trailer and placed on an axle stand. seems like a good idea

Whilst that may be useful - if the other wheel is not clamped Mr Insurer may disagree, even if its nicked with a Hi-Ab and flatbed truck!

RIBase
Once I forgot my wheel clamp when I had to leave my rib in a compound in the West. I contacted my insurance company and they suggested that I take a wheel of as a deterrent.
