New theft threat

I friend of mine just bought a boat and noticed that the chip worth about $200 was stolen from his chart plotter.

It is easy to get to, just open a cover and pull out the chip.

Never thought of that before, myself.

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
