I know loads of people whove left there bung out, (ie me ). At least it's a good excuse for poor speed!

at our club security is not an issue as we have a locked barrier at the end of the lane and a locked compound which stretches all the way round the lake.

When wwe do opens we put a hitchlock on our trailer to stop it being stolen, Never leave your sails, foils, compasses ect. in your boat because even if they are covered by your insurance you'll still have to pay the excess

You are right to be concerned about theft from your boat, it is something that we as insurers, see all too frequently.

Have a look at the article I wrote for the Y&Y website earlier this year http://www.yachtsandyachting.com/news/?article=16152 

Also keep an eye on http://www.stolenboats.org.uk.  Making life difficult for the theives, by working together in this way, has got to be a good thing!

I had this concern re security of my laser so I made a T bar plate from stainless that goes though the centre board casing and just comes out the bottom on the hull. I then have a chain and padlock to a secure ground fixing that connects to the bottom of the T bar. The ground fixing is basically a large concrete block in the ground with a steel ring that I can pass the hefty chain through. It also secures the launching trolley and road trailer if it's on the combo. It works a treat and also stops the boat being blown over in a storm.
