Hi all, Just a quick note to say at least 5 vessels (including mine) have been broken into over the last week, up Fareham end of the harbour, not much taken, only small portable radios and the Like.
Please ensure you have removed valuables and secure you boats..

On the above note, may I ask what deterrent systems are effective that you guys may recommend??

It wont ensure your boat is not broken into, but it can act as a deterrent.
(What thief wants attention thrown his direction?)

On my Old boats, the Arvor 215 and the 250 I fitted a 120db Piezo alarm.
I designed and fitted this in an area that would be discrete so not seen, and out of reach, so couldn't be tampered with.
I then fitted various switches to door, hatches etc and switched it all with either a fob remote (215), and after that a on/off switch (250) which only I knew the placement of.

The result was/is, if anyone opened a hatch, or the door the siren would go off.
With a 120db siren screeching (normally dead of night?) the idea was that any thieves would hopefully scarper.

It only ever went off a few times when I forgot to switch it off prior to opening a hatch or the door, and it used to make me jump out of my skin. I knew it was there and it still made me jump and rush to close the door/hatch through fear of attracting attention!!!!!

Relatively simple circuit to complete.
I also stuck a sign to the door saying "This Boat Is Alarmed". (Which it was)

Mine was always kept in professional run marina, but even so it always gave me a further degree of comfort when walking away from it, knowing that if anyone tried to gain entry then every live aboard in the marina would be woken and anyone within a few hundred metres area would likely say "what the F is that alarm going off this time of night"

A "This boat is alarmed" sticker would be a low cost start!
