Re: Yamaha outboard 8hp 4 stroke stolen in Chesapeake bay marina

That's an interesting idea. Put an RFID tag inside the engine, and then mount a transciever under the transom. If the engine is pulled, the transceiver doesn't see the RFID tag any more and sounds an alarm. Shouldn't be all that expensive to build, and you could hide the RFID tag just about anywhere on the engine.
