In the early winter of last year I had a little problem with thieves/idiots in the marina. First they stole the battery
from my car. Then after I got a new one they came back for that too. Got an alarm
and got to keep my battery. Installed an alarm
in the boat as well and never had any problems there either BUT...
My shore power
cord was cut 3 times together with a couple of cords to other boats, and they took the CEE-adapter that I had to have to plug
it in.. after 3 of these pointless thefts (the adapter cost like 2 dollars to replace so why steal one.. they just wanted to fck around I guess) Brilliant to have no power in freezing temps..
So, eventually I got tired of it and started to figure out what to do. I thought of stripping the cords leaving them bare and taped to the cover of the connector, letting them have the full 230V through the body.. but since IŽd probably get more problems with the police than they would I skipped that idea. Also, wouldnt have been so fun if a small kid would touch it while waiting for their parents to finish up to go home...
So, I sacrificed a wine glass, thin nice glass.. crushed it into tiny pieces and superglued them onto a spare adapter that I used on nights only. Whammo, one night I woke up from a scream of pain
Once I got up and out, the idiot was gone oc but left me some satisfaction when I saw the trail of blood.. They never came back
