Agreed.

Another is Aqua Eye, but at about the same price as the Boat Nanny.

MCD's BoatSense is a little more palatable at $685. It doesn't appear to have its own proprietary switches, rather a few normally open or normally closed circuits, allowing you to use an off the shelf float switch, etc.

All of these require some type of monitoring charge at around $200/year.
