Re: Aren't boats too easy to steal?

My outboard sits in a well that is locked with a padlock. I then thread a short bike lock through it and around the tiller, effectively binding it to starboard. I simply trust that any would-be boat thief would choose any number of the hundreds of boats that are not secured in any fashion whatsoever. I did recently lose a winch cover, but I don't know if it was stolen or if it simply blew off...
