Re: Dinghy theft protection
Best idea I ever heard of was to install a 5" (or larger) opening deck plate in the bottom of the hull with the opening at the waterline height of your unloaded dink. Take the plate wirh you when you go.
Thief, or drunk, steps in the boat and immediately it starts sinking (to a point).
You only have to reach in and reinstall the plate before getting in. Also doubles as a self bailing hole.
Your other option is to get the BRIGHT red model of Portland Pudgy like I did. Nobody knows what it is or wants it
I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
