Re: Aren't boats too easy to steal?
Well, my outboard has a lock...
Also unlike a lot of you folks, I ONLY have forward gear (boat is bow in)... you'd have to know to spin the outboard around to do reverse.
On top of that, I'm on a lake... you arent' going real far.
Let's assume you steal a sailboat, it has an inboard, and say 30 gallons of fuel.
You'll be able to go far, but not real fast.
It's why thieves if they steal a boat they usually opt for a powerboat. Low speed chases usually don't end well for crooks.
