    Default has anyone ever used a car alarm on a their boat?

    I am thinking about putting a simple car alarm in my boat so that the punk kids in the neighbor hood cant take my stereo equipment. Has anyone ever done this? I ordered a cheap car alarm and will only be hooking up the shock sensor.

    I can't say I've ever even thought about it...I'm not sure what you would hook it up to in the absence of doors, locks and windows though? I know you can get some alarms that set up a perimeter around a vehicle and once you walk into the perimeter or stick your hand in the open window the radar sensor goes off and activates the alarm. I think these are more expensive than most switch activated alarms but it might work better in your case.

    Where do you keep your boat? Is it on a private dock?

    If so maybe just put a trip sensor across the dock. Even a simple motion light would probably help.

    You can install switches for the lockers and cubby doors

    My idea of a SHOCK sensor is a little different. Don't you touch my Moomba.

    I live in the hood. Literally. People will ask me for dollars in the front yard if I linger outside for too long. I wish I was kidding or exaggerating. So on the REALLY RARE occasion that my boat stays overnight, I put a wireless interior motion detector from my home's alarm system inside the boat. I sleep really light those nights.
