Put the motion sensor on a post near your boat. IR would work just fine, and it also has all the features at once, IR, low light, and regular light, they are digital and store the photos on mini or micro sd cards as well as some models which have wifi capabilities and can be live monitored.

We have some on the hunting lease we use on tree limbs, near water holes, they move a little but they have never been waggled about like the top of the mast, but they do not seem to be coming on for no reason at all.

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

Probably just me, but it seems SO much simpler to just lock the damn motor to begin with... (grin)

I use one of these - definite overkill for an engine nobody wants to steal, anyway... But, no way in hell would anyone ever attempt to defeat this one, on a boat sitting in a marina, they'd probably have to fire up an acetylene torch to cut it open...

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

Jon beat me to the punch with this one. These locks have been around for years and darned near bulletproof. While I was in Marathon, Florida there were two dozen outboards stolen, plus a dozen Honda generators, lots of fishing tackle, some dinghies, and several batteries. They were all stolen by one individual who pretty much made a living doing this. When he accumulated enough gear, he would load the stuff in his pickup and head for Miami where he would sell it on the black market. A lot of it went out of the country. Fortunately, Marathon has Deputy Sheriff Willie, who knows where these folks tend to live. Willie had him in cuffs, and brought all that back to the City Marina one afternoon. Most of it was stolen at night, and the thief mainly took things that were not locked down securely.

Those locks are not at all expensive, but replacing that Yamaha darned sure will be pricey.

Good Luck,

Gary

A friend of mine locked his motor real well, but the crooks took a Sawzall to his transom. It made him wish he had left his motor unlocked.

Nevertheless, I still lock my motor to the boat.

Now you guys got me nervous. Just ordered a new Yamaha.
Jon, your photo did not show for me. Do you have a name or link?

Never mind. It showed up.
