Dinghy w/ Name of Mother Ship?

Dingy with corresponding name of vessel
Hi I have a new dingy and I am thinking of adding the name of the mother ship to dingy.
My question is this seems like a wine win for thief’s , as one only has to motor around the shore notice which name of dingy is associated with which sailboat and know there is no one home because dingy is on shore and the occupants are gone hiking etc.
Am I paranoid should we identify the dingy to the mother ship? Thief

Sergy, my dinghy has the same name as my boat. Maybe you are being paranoid, but it is a good point. Now I'm paranoid too!

I2F...You're funny. Those are good!

While it is common to prefix the name with T/T (tender to), there are many boats with "cute" dinghy names. My favourite:

Mothership - Kumquat May

Dinghy - Kumquat Mite

Well, I was very, very young at the time, but the name Ruby Begonia and the Amos & Andy radio show rings a bell.

I seem to remember reading somewhere that if I boat is strictly a tender to a mother ship, that it doesn't have to be registered, etc. It's foggy & I might remember it wrong. Other than that, Everything I've ever read on the subject said "don't do it." Thieves see your dink on the beach & know which boat is most likely to have no one aboard.

In Canada, a tender (any boat) with an engine of more than 10 p or 7.5 Kw must be licensed - that is a combination of letters and number. Not sure about other countries.

You see a great many 9.9 hp decals on some rather large engine cowlings

We were told by the harboe police here in so cal that if you want to not register the tender to a yact it must have T/T "documentation number of mother ship" to ne legal. They do not want to see the name of the mother ship....only the doxumentation number. There are some other requirements in regard to hp of the tender etc but I don't remember the details of that...only that you need to mark your documentation number on the tender to be legal.

No, you're being smart. That's exactly what thieves do. It also helps, to prevent thief, if your dingy is a standout color like bright red, or very ugly. Same goes for the kicker. Make then standout like a sore thumb. One clever cruiser spray painted large bright pink spot all over his dingy and OB. Never had a problem so I'm told.
