Re: Run-aground sailboat was stolen

I'm absolutely flabbergasted there were no anti-theft devices or methods on board.

Lets' be honest here folks, not a single one of the standard ignition systems on a boat would take more than 5 minutes to short around.

For example, even I spring the 30 bucks for a hidden switch to my fuel pump.

10 minutes of thought, a hour of doing - and 3 million saved.
Heck, even a bicycle lock on the helm could have deterred this.

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
