Bilge pump warnings and engine disablers
Bilge pumps are on a boat to pump out water which should not be present.. Some boats have alarms that go off when water is detected. Our Marine GPS units monitor an alarm, or we add a secondary float switch which when activated causes a message to be sent to cell phone or email. Engine Disable prevents the motors from being started. Shore power alerts tells you if your dockside power supply has failed. When you tie up to a dock, you hook up electricity to the boat to keep things charged, refrigerators running and boat batteries charged etc. If the shore power fails, you have a problem and we tell you about it.
"Whether you own a kayak, a motor boat, personal water craft or 40 foot wooden sailboat... ensure your boat has the same level of protection as your car or truck," said Robert Bryant, President and CEO of National Insurance Crime Bureau. "The majority of watercraft stolen are under 20 feet long and are never seen again by their owners," he added."A few simple theft prevention devices could have kept them happily afloat."
With few exceptions, all motorboats must have a registration number located forward. While each state requires vessels to be registered before they can legally operate on their waters, not all states require vessels be titled prior to registration. Non-titling states create the opportunity for vessel insurance and title fraud.
NICB recommends the following guidelines that should leave boat thieves foundering in your wake... guard against a fraudulent purchase, use common sense when disembarking from your vessel and maintain updated identification records.
- Keep identification records current.
- Keep clear updated records of your craft and equipment.
- Never leave registration, title or identification papers aboard.
- Take photos or video footage of the boat, including a close up photo of the HIN.
- Record serial numbers of electronics and equipment.
A vessel ID checklist and fact sheet to combat boat fraud is available at www.nicb.org. Boat and outboard theft is on the rise, as well as electronics and boat trailers. Sitting on the trailer or moored, your boat is fair game to bad guys.
- Educate yourself - Recognize the signs of potential fraud.
- If an offer seems to be to good to be true, it probably is!.
- When buying a boat, compare the HIN on the hull to the HIN on the registration form.
Remember to Lock when Docked
- It is less like that a thief will steal a vessel if it is too time-consuming or too noisy.
- Choose a high-traffic, brightly lit docking area.
- Clearly mark and identify the watercraft.
- Use a lockable steel cable to secure the boat to the buoy or dock, and chain outboard motors to the craft.
- Never leave the engine running, or leave keys in the craft on disembarkation.
- Keep cabin windows and doors locked when the boat is not in use.
- Remember to ctivate alarm systems when disembarking from the vessel.,
- Remove distributor cap or battery when leaving the boat docked for protracted periods.
