Do you ever glance in a really expensive rare car parked next to you? I do.
People don't usually live in cars, especially rare, expensive cars.
To me, this sounds like a cultural gap. These morons aren't wrapping their brains around the concept
of "liveaboard". They just think that someone owns the boat and parks it there, so they poke around and peek inside. This doesn't excuse their behavior, but it may provide some insight on how to deal with it.
I agree with everyone who recommended posting
signage. Especially if the signage is posted in such a way that the peeper has to touch it or move it out of his way in order to board the boat.
Also, for the OP- In another thread, someone posted a photo
of a security
grate that you can install over your companionway
. It won't do much for your privacy, but it'll damn sure keep someone out of the cabin
It's amazing how entitled some people think they are. I own a DeLorean and God forbid that I should leave it unattended for a moment at a gas station or a restaurant. People just open the door and plop right down in the driver's seat or are absolutely, positively compelled to put their fuggin' fingerprints all over the stainless steel
I don't live in my car, so I know that's not a fair comparison, but I do sympathize.
