Re: Lock it up when sailors come around???
My guess is that it is just more that there are smaller valuable pieces, and would be locked up or at least watched a bit closer like the jewellery department in any store. "Excuse me sir, is that a winch in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?" (and if so I am impressed!)
I will say that the marina I am at no one seems to lock up there boats, and there are a couple who have expensive looking electronics right there there within arms reach of the dock without being covered or locked. And this is about 30 miles from NYC. Granted it is a bit isolated, not within walking distance of the nearest store, but not remote.
