Our marina seems fairly secure. 24 hour guard at the only entrance plus surveillance cameras and live-aboards scattered throughout. Still, we lock up tight when we leave, even if we just go out for dinner.
When we go home, the portable electronics and tools are taken with us, the GPS units, VHF, stereo, radar and other instruments are all securely mounted. While that won’t stop a thief, it will slow them down some, hopefully to the point of abandoning the effort.
No illusions here, a thief will get anything they have a mind to. I see it as my job to make it as difficult as possible for them.
I don’t know that I would call it living scared, just making a reasonable effort to secure our belongings. Makes for a better story to tell the insurance adjuster, should the worst happen.
