Winter Storage: Remove Electronics

Anyone remove their chartplotter? Any horror stories? I'd imagine this varies place to place. We're actually stored indoors this year but with permanent open bays I'm somewhat concerned, even with the claim of 24/7 on site security.

Re: Winter Storage: Remove Electronics

I would think that this depends largely on how simple the removal. I take my GPS with chart map off my binacle with one quick release connecter. If you have a built in unit it might be easier to set a cockpit alarm or added locking mechanism. What's the history of thefts at the storage locatioon? Have you heard of problems from other boaters?
Take care and joy, Aythya crew
