I agree. Easy stuff goes first, even if unusable. I really like the shell casing idea. Would work on the front porch as well! Cable is harder to cut that a link of chain,too.

Re: Dingy/Tender Security

Padlocks pick easy.

Combos with 4 wheels on the bottom are easy.

A good combination lock where you twist the dial on front takes longer to pick, about 10 to 15 minutes.

Tin snips zip through cable.

My bet is heavy chain with a good, dial combination lock.

There is an old Key West adage about bikes that also applies to dingys.

"Anything with less than 3 locks is considered abandoned."

If a thief wants to steal your dingy he will.
A friend of mine chained his dingy to the dingy dock at Budget Marine in St Maarten where someone used bolt cutters on his chain.
Another time a boat next to mine found their dingy on the beach with a V cut in the transom where to engine used to be.
I cruised for 10 years and a dingy thief was one of the few things that never happened to me.

Re: Dingy/Tender Security

Mark, your remote anchoring technique is interesting. Can I suggest you store your trip line on a "Cuban Yoyo"? The line will be much easier to payout and just as easy to retrieve. It comes off the front of the spool just like a spinning reel.
