A SERPENT IN THE GARDEN
"In marinas as well as at anchor, make it a habit to lock up your boat whenever you leave it. Hatches should be dogged down from the inside and the companionway secured with a stout padlock. An internal lock is even better because it can't be severed by hack saw or bolt cutters. If you're going ashore in the evening, leave a cabin light on, and perhaps the radio playing, to make it look and sound as if someone's home. Clear the decks of all easily removable gear, such as binoculars, cameras, dive gear, etc. and, if an outboard motor is stored on a rail bracket, chain and lock it."
