speciald 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".

nonsailor 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.

Hesper 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.

SVDistantStar 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.

nonsailor 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.

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.

Boasun A raft up is where you may want to ask if you can enter the cabin areas down below. But cross decking for friendly conversations the reason why you rafted together in the first place. And the open decks will be where you are all gathering especially on the boat with the barbecue going.

chucklesR My slip is on private property so I don't have a problem with trespassers other than those that also rent a slip there (only 4 of us). We all know each other and have phone numbers etc. The owner is close to 80, and I'm the only renter than can see the slips from his home so I consider myself the defacto caretaker.
As such I board any boat (one of them used to be mine) any time to take care of problems, and report to the property owner if one of the boats needs something more than I'll give (new dockline, sitting low) - especially in the winter time.

The motion detector fired flood lamps take care of sneaky folks.

I agree that permission should be asked and granted in order to board unless it is to save life or property - BUT

It really irks the crap out of me to be at a raft up and have everyone asking to board/cross every stinking time. Sometimes permission should be taken for granted - especially at a raft up.

Boasun But then again some states are very strict on what crime deterent that you can use. And Boobytraps would definitely be highly illegal in those states or countries. But then in Europe I have seen broken bottles cemented to the top of fences. a cheap form of razor wire.

While in the Navy I sweeped for mines. That was my job. So I would only use non-lethal non-crippling traps. Mines and lethal boobytraps should never be used in any form or manner. Especially during war.

Boasun It was a pawn shop I believe that is in one of the rougher Miami neighborhoods. It was a mixed community so he had the signs in four languages. English, spanish, French and Mong.
