Re: Dinghy theft protection
Most dinghies don't have power. How does that work?
This solution is designed to protect the dinghy when it is alongside the Mother vessel, i.e. at night at anchor.
The power for the alarm comes from the mother vessel and whatever devices you have attached to the alarm are on the mother vessel
The rest of the time when we are not attached to the mother vessel, we have to rely on chains cables and padlocks
Around these parts, if it raining heavily at night, it is a dinghy at risk night, the bad guys sometimes swim up to the dinghy and try and free it and let it drift down wind then take it away to remove the engine
