Locks? What are locks? I'm on my 4th boat that I've kept at this marina and in 19 years, none have ever been locked. Have never locked it at my winter storage marina either - a few miles down the road.
There are quite a few boats not locked - ever and on the weekends, more than a few cars in the parking lot, doors unlocked and keys in the ignition.
