No worries mate. For me, the deterrent is only part of the attraction. Increasing the chance of getting it back if stolen, and of the thief being caught 'wet' handed, also appeals.

In my mind if some thieving t**t is going to nick your boat they will. Any security can be defeated, but if your boat looks better potected than the next, the risk is less. I leave no valuable gear on & have wheel & hitch locks. Keep in a "secure" yard Pay my insurance, try not to worry!
