You could get a dog... but that is another set of problems.

I could not deal with a boat that looked like a piece of junk. And to make my boat look worse than the other boats out there.... that is scary since most are dong good just to float.

Just lock everything up with a thick chain. If it looks like a real pain to get it, most will go on without bothering. I think a really good lock on the companionway door is a big plus. You have kitchen knives and those are not illegal.

But if they are willing to take the time to break open a companionway door and threaten you with something more than a kitchen knife would defend, seems like you need to be very cooperative or check that life insurance plan.

My opinion.
