Re: Dinghy theft protection
OK Poker... so the guy gets into your dink while you are below or not present... and starts the motor and cuts the cable and the alarm in you cockpit goes off and he takes off with your dink with your boat blasting an alarm. You can do nothing... jump in and swim?
Call the police and your insurance company... files a claim and get a new boat. That's what insurance is for.
This accomplishes what? To me simply waking up people... disturbing those already awake in the anchorage.
Most people are anchored off or on a mooring because they want the peace and quiet it affords. All we need is a bunch of security alarms going off either from failures or failed attempts or even successful attempts at tampering.
pay attention... someone's life depends on it
