Or the one with the 14 foot by 10 foot dance floor on the front and 14 foot by 8 foot seats 10 with a table cockpit on the back that just happens to be in the middle of the raft up.

In britain it was common to have broken bottles set in cement on the top of walls to prevent intruders, but it is no longer legal.
The criminal has greater protection and more rights than the law abiding citizen because they are the lawyers bread and butter, and the people who make the laws are lawyers themselves or have close links with lawyers.

Ive since added this little thing i found at home depot to my boat. Its a little wedge shape alarm thing that is made to go behind a door, when to door is opened its activated and it screams. Ive got to velcroed to the underside of sliding part of my door.

Ive got my boat prepped for storms now, so the bimini is down and the genny is covered up in the cockpit floor.

Hey, Ken. At your marina, that "security" wouldn't happen to be the Singapore Navy, would it? Ha!

Been thinking about you guys - thanks again for your hospitality.

Considering the cost of boats and the equipment on them, I'm surprised that there is'nt an army of salesmen trying to sell you all expensive yet very loud alarm systems.
If loud enough, they might even force pirates back to their boats.

We were in Annapolis in a slip by Steve's Yard and the Chart House. My wife awoke to strange noises in the cockpit and when she went to evaluate; she found a couple going at it in the cockpit. This episode was published in Lats and Ats under the title " boatus-interuptis".
