One thing he could take is your dinghy and motor.
And if surprised in action could display an intimidating weapon?

With a switch at your bunk, and bars on the door - this will send wannabe thieves over the rails... and quick!

Tie that to a few underdeck strain gauge detectors and you have a good system to convince the bad guys to go somewhere else.

Re: Robbed in Nassau

Rick, the ultimate duh moment for me. I've installed security systems since the mid 80's and I never once thought of bringing up this solution. hahaha As for motion activated security lights, I hate them because you spend more time getting up to see why the light came on, knowing they false trigger so often. It would be the ultimate ruiner of peace of mind. In my view the best triggering mechanisms outside of the panic switch would be to rig a tripwire. Obviously you would need a sealed contact to tie the wire to but I think it would be effective and not prone to false alarm.
