Boat security is distinct from other types of security, because it involves a number of different considerations not present in other forms of security, the main distinguishing feature being that of the presence of water.
So, in some ways, it can be compared to home security or car security, in that there are required locks to prevent theft, and some thieves are looking to either break in, or steal your outboard motor, or even your fuel.
If someone does manage to steal your boat, by the time that thief is out on the water, this relies on different authorities to take care of things, rather than the police. Devices like tracking beacons may be utilized was well.
Sometimes the people who can help you the quickest are your fellow boaters in Boatwatch, so it’s good to be familiar with that organization if you already aren’t.
