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

I did not have a lock. Would that have saved my outboard from being stolen? Don't know.
These guys came with a purpose: my outboard was not new (5 years old) so it wasn't particularly attractive. There are many other outboards around at the marina without locks.
Did they want that specific model? I dock stern in, easier access to the outboard: was that a reason? Who knows.

I will put a lock, from now on. That's for sure. At least they would have to work harder.

A tracking device inside the outboard? and the boat, for that matter? Probably too expensive, but i start to think it could be worth the price just to have the satisfaction to catch such jerks.
