Re: Aren't boats too easy to steal?

Who needs a key to start an inboard diesel? All you need is a screwdriver to jump the starter, and all boat owners should know how to do this for when the day comes that the key/start button corrodes and doesn't work.

If someone goes to all the trouble to go out onto my boat on its' mooring in the dark I doubt that locking the hatch boards is suddenly going to stop them from getting inside. In the end I still lose the stuff they take plus now I have to repair all the damage when they kick in the companionway.

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!
