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

When I was back in the U.K. recently, the local police had an initiative to reduce outboard theft. When you left the boat you took the outboard cowing with you and replaced it with a lockable cover to keep the weather out. The idea was that an outboard without a cowling was less attractive to thieves and I guess the fact that it had the "police" on it might also help. I have no idea how effective it was.
