On a more serious note. There are just too many small, out of the way places on a sailboat to hide valuables. Each boat is different so that makes it harder for a thief to effectively search each nook and cranny. Just leave a couple of hundred bucks in chart table and hopefully the thief will leave happy and not do any more searching.

Difference between a power boater and a sailor out on the water: A power boater is going some place special, a sailor is already there.
