Just remember that you can't prevent them from stealing your boat or anything on it...but if you make it more inconvenient for the thieves, they'll generally go to the next boat instead. Lock the cabin, put a lock on the outboard, etc..

Most thieves are opportunists... and if your outboard is not locked, and your cabin isn't locked...they'll go through it and take whatever they can. If your boat is locked up and the outboard is secured, and the boat next to yours isn't....guess which boat they'll probably hit.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
