Mooring your boat - security considerations
The larger the marina, the more staff it is likely to employ, and the greater security measures in force. Nevertheless, thieves will still target such marinas due to the large quantity of boats there, so it’s still important to ensure your boat has its own security measures in place.
In many of the popular sailing and motor boating areas of the country, boat owners have set up Boatwatch organisations, similar to the community based Neighbourhood Watch. These are usually set up in co-operation with the local police, so to find out if there is one operating in your area get in touch with your local Crime Prevention Officer or Marine Police Unit.
