I just found an entry from my boating
log from a trip I took in July down to the SW area of Florida
" just had to defend my vessel from an attempted hijacking while docked in the marina. Fortunately I was able to thwart the attempt before they got too far and they only made it onto the deck. Had I not been able to do so, I would have had to summons the boat's security detachment (aka Ethan and Garrett) and those two otters would have not known what hit them."
Ethan and Garrett are my 8 and 9 year old adventurous boys.
On a serious note though, We lock the doors when we are on board and when we leave. I have carried a firearm professionally for the past 16 years. It goes with me everywhere yet even in a pair of swim trunks and a t-shirt no one knows it's there. At the home dock
, we all keep an eye on each other.
Security and safety
is more about mindset than anything else.

I know what you mean. The first time I visited Willie Mae's Scotch house I wanted to run the stop signs getting there.
