Re: Yamaha outboard 8hp 4 stroke stolen in Chesapeake bay marina

When I was back in the U.K. recently, the local police had an initiative to reduce outboard theft. When you left the boat you took the outboard cowing with you and replaced it with a lockable cover to keep the weather out. The idea was that an outboard without a cowling was less attractive to thieves and I guess the fact that it had the "police" on it might also help. I have no idea how effective it was.

The post contains links and images, which I can't include yet because I'm too new...

The board is set up in such a way that I have to have 10 posts before including URLs and images...

Re: Yamaha outboard 8hp 4 stroke stolen in Chesapeake bay marina

Please forgive me for spreading out this information to get to the 10 posts. I do mean well.
Here's ten... on to the actual information...

LOL... Need to wait 30 seconds between posts... tick tick tick...

Hope this is useful to someone...

Not sure if this sort of thing appeals to anyone but I'll through it out there....Moultrie M-880 Mini Cam Game Camera MCG-12594 B&H Photo Video

These are made as game cameras but might be employed for security service. They can be set up to do time lapse, i.e. take a picture once every minute, or with motion sensor. Some will shoot video. Not too expensive and mounted up out of reach (on a mast?) might work. I don't know much about them but it might be something to look into.
There's also a new one, Brinno HDR Pro...
Brinno HDR Time Lapse Camera TLC200 Pro

That's supposed to be pretty good in low light.
These things may not give a good enough picture to ID the thief but you'd have a cool video of him stealing your stuff. :-D

Actually a very good idea. Welcome to Sailnet.com and thanks. I know those come in nightvision setups as well, and they can do video which is motion activated. It will not get your outboard back, but at least you might know who to crack over the head with an oar.

I am looking to see if I have a link that I can actually let you guys see to a little device that has a GPS tracking doohickey in it. It is not too expensive and is small enough to put right inside the cowling.

I will post it in a few if it is available to public viewing.

Not sure how to nicely explain fellow boaters i'm taking a picture of them every time the walk the dock near my boat....

Problem with these things : either you hide it well, or there's no point (thieves will steal that too... ).

Also about motion sensors: boat being on the water, there is obviously motion. You need to set the sensor properly.

But I've been thinking about this, and if discrete and small, it may be a good idea (avoiding the flash, of course, with good low light sensibility). Properly positioned, it could be a reasonably priced solution.

There seem to be quite a few on ebay, that might work and are about dirt cheap.

Agreed, IR motion sensing would be worthless. Time lapse would be the logical choice for these.
