Hope this is useful to someone...

Not sure if this sort of thing appeals to anyone but I'll through it out there....Moultrie M-880 Mini Cam Game Camera MCG-12594 B&H Photo Video

These are made as game cameras but might be employed for security service. They can be set up to do time lapse, i.e. take a picture once every minute, or with motion sensor. Some will shoot video. Not too expensive and mounted up out of reach (on a mast?) might work. I don't know much about them but it might be something to look into.
There's also a new one, Brinno HDR Pro...
Brinno HDR Time Lapse Camera TLC200 Pro

That's supposed to be pretty good in low light.
These things may not give a good enough picture to ID the thief but you'd have a cool video of him stealing your stuff. :-D

Not sure how to nicely explain fellow boaters i'm taking a picture of them every time the walk the dock near my boat....

Problem with these things : either you hide it well, or there's no point (thieves will steal that too... ).

Also about motion sensors: boat being on the water, there is obviously motion. You need to set the sensor properly.

But I've been thinking about this, and if discrete and small, it may be a good idea (avoiding the flash, of course, with good low light sensibility). Properly positioned, it could be a reasonably priced solution.
