Also - my cooking has been known to leave the cabin filled with a certain "air" about it that would deter the heartiest of souls.

In another thread, someone mentioned trailing a long line of floating line behind your boat while underway. I thought that was an interesting idea but, in my opinion, if you're passive enough to just let them take whatever they want, throwing tacks on deck or electrifying your lifeline is just going to make them mad when they come to take what they want.

Also, it's not a given that having firearms on board isn't worth the trouble. If it were a given, it wouldn't be a topic for debate.

As far as petty theft goes, make it hard to steal and easy to identify.

Ugly boats? You guys are no fun! Check this out:

Bear Shock Electric Fence for the Backcountry

6,000 volts should do it--just remember that you've got it if you decide to take a stroll around the deck at night

Plus, that item will eliminate those nasty sailors who pee off their deck!!!

I wouldn't exactly call that a debate; more like the NRA complaint thread. It's pretty well acknowledgedged that cruising wherever you want with a gun on board is far from legal in most ports and you risk much (like spending the rest of your life in some third world prison) for doing it, whether you you agree with it that or not. With all due respect, please go to that thread if you want to talk about that - the OP for this thread wants to talk about alternatives.

I've always been of the opinion that fire extinguishers are far from uni-taskers.

It is hard to have larceny on your mind when your lungs are full of nasty choking chemicals and your eyes are streaming and raw. get the timing right and follow with a swift kick overboard and causing you further inconvenience will be the last thing on someone's mind.

Are we talking petty theft while you are away? I think petty theft mostly is on easy targets of opportunity. And petty thieves don't typically like confrontation. So make sure they know you are present when you are and lock things up good when you aren't.

"I wouldn't exactly call that a debate; more like the NRA complaint thread."

No doubt where your coming from.

Seems the vast majority have decided the false safety net of big government is better than facing the risks involved with individual freedom and responsibility. Of course if you are out at sea in the dark of night far from the reach of your big government safety net what do you do. Quit your whining,be a good victim, bend over and take it like a man, you made the choice to play follow the leader without really understanding what you were forfeiting in the process, now it's time to pay up.

Wow Banshi, you sure know how to win friends and influence people.

Please note that you pulled that quote from a posting that was asking members to keep this on topic and take your debate over to the other thread.
