Re: Built in safe for cruising yacht
My brother, a retired fireman, always told people ." If you want a safe place to keep documents ,in case of a fire, put it in the deep freeze. The whole house will burn down without the deep freeze thawing completely. On a boat, that means against the hull, below the waterline, where things will stay cool in a fire, especially in a metal hull.
I'd never follow government orders to make things easy for a thief.
