Re: Sailboat in the surf near San Francisco

If I owned a 3 million dollar boat I would be damn sure to have a GPS tracker onboard with alarm to notify me if it moved 5ft!

If I owned this $3m boat the team in charge of managing her would be finding it very difficult to walk right about now. Folks with boats like these don't bother with anchor alarms, they hire people to manage them. These people would never find work in yacht management again if it were my boat. But hey were all talking hypotheticals here right?

Actually, there was a good lesson there that has been noted throughout the marina. There was a key hidden in the bimini that these folks used to gain access. Most of the boats in our marina had such hidden keys, and most of the boat workers knew where they are. Not too hard to find, really.

Most of those keys have vanished in the past week, including mine. I was just talking to the person who did my interior varnish last month, and it's making life difficult for those who maintain boats. But, when an Oyster 82 is that easy to steal, we should all take note.

Please note that yours truly has never attended a Grateful Dead concert, has never owned a porche, and doesn't leave the key in the ignition.

My boat is in in Sausalito and I always lock up... even if I'm only going to the car and back. I have great neighbors, but I don't know everybody on the dock. It doesn't take long to hop aboard a boat, grab a laptop,, handheld radio, or whatever. My GF thinks i'm paranoid, maybe so... It's common sense to me.

Reards.

Who owns a $3m boat probably has a $10m house (or two).

The news showed the owner driving up and getting out of a Prius when the boat was still on the beach, so you never know!

Depends on the type. There are some that align the solar flux with the pendicular of the anchor chain while others use a polarized lens with a camera eye to watch the seabed movement, if any. Simpler ones consist of a cowbell hung from the anchorchain just above water. But yes, there are some that track boat position using modern gadgets like GPS. I've been told here on CF that those have a high chance of complacency, especially when integrated with other modern gadgets like an auto-pilot!

So I reckon the solar flux type is probably best. Only trouble with that is that you need accurate date and time... which requires more gadgets
