a hand held air horn does wonders for repelling unwanted intruders....

I think some of the most direct methods for repelling boarders are nullified by the baby on board. Loud alarms, mace, various weapons, even a tripwire could be dangerous to mom and baby if she forgets about it at some point.

Not sure what's left, maybe spray them with a garden hose, or visibly taking their picture and telling them you're keeping the picture for when the police come.

I'd have definitely called the police on the creepy camera voyeur guy though, and if they're too busy to show up, have gone to the station and spoken to one of the mucky mucks.

Talking to marina management is also a good idea. I talked to my apartment manager once about an idiot neighbor and the manager told me they were looking for just one more excuse not to renew that neighbors lease.

I think shoooing is WAY TOO NICE. A good loud GET THE F*** OFF MY BOAT will work every time. Also, keep a camera and get a photo of anyone who tired to get on your boat.

I have not read the entire thread, but I thought I remembered once reading that under maritime law, the captian/crew of a vessle had much more lattitude in preventing illegal boarding and intrusion than on land?

Signs up!

Thanks for all the replys, I put these up after work Thursday night ...





CapnTony, We're at Emerald Point Marina, one of 8 sailboats in a 300+ slip marina, right in between Just For Fun (Watercraft Rentals) and Carlos n' Charlies (Restaurant and Night Club) . I'd love to hear of any other options on Travis that allow liveaboards and can accommodate a 12'x30' sailboat.

I've talked with the manager, Doug, and he completely understands that this is not OK, and has agreed to talk to Just For Fun about better 'policing' their clients, not tying gates open, parking boats next to gates, ect.. He said that our signs are no problem at all and is committed to resolve the problem. He also suggested an air horn.

Alicia does carry mace, and I've told her to USE it! (but she loses nerve in these situations) I like the air horn, but as with the mace, one would have to be extra cautious of the baby.

I'm also looking into an alarm system similar to what MarkJ posted.

I hope that helps, a mom with a little one does NOT need to be dealing with some bozo crashin her cockpit when she comes home or goes out. No one needs that of course, but especially a mom with a child in tow. Totally unnerving...

RQF4 now that I see your pictures with the easy entry and understand that you are beside a boat rental place I can better understand that your problem was acute, since many might think yours was a charter vessel and want a look.

Your sign should stop the problem, but for the real idiots, better that it was actually placed on board by the stern.

Good luck

A small chain clipped between the pair of signs should be adequate to make the point to all but the terminally obtuse. Good luck.

Just catching this thread and a few thoughts.

- It's really a shame people think they can just walk aboard but remember half of all people are below average intelligence.

- I think the signs are a good idea - I would personally remove the"this is my home" part - No need to advertise that all your worldly goods might be aboard. Just "No Trespassing" works.

- The chain between the signs is a good idea.

Also, just a minor counter thought. If the transom gate is open and you are close to a high traffic area I think it is somewhat inviting to step aboard. I would definitely close the transom door or chain across the transom. People are less likely to open a door, remove a chain or step over the lifelines.

Getting back to the house analogy, you wouldn't leave your front door open and unlocked all day and expect your stuff to be secure for long.

Instead of "my home", how about "Not responsible for DOG BITES."
