    That sucks - nothing worse than a liar or thief. Gets me all worked up again about my truck getting hit last Dec in broad daylight in a busy lunchtime restaurant parking lot - side window, radar detector, phone, ipod, gym bag, etc. I hope all those thieving little b-tards get nailed (or worse down here in Texas). Fortunately it's just stuff & nobody (well, at least the good guys) got hurt.

    Berg man, I hate to hear about this so much. But it is kind of funny how sometimes the people you think are out to really try and help/protect the citizens such as yourself and I, seem to really not care and almost be on the bad guys side at times...

    I know it's against the law in GA to have a firearm on Army Corps of Engineer property here in GA. Didn't know that either at the time...

    Ouch! Hate to see this happen to you Berg specially the way you care for your boat. Hope all turns out for the better and you are back on the water in the next coming months. Hopefully the thieves get what they deserve!

    Ended up adding a 3ft section to the top of the existing fence/gate yesterday for a total of 9ft tall now and outside motion detector alarm installed with monitor on my nightstand but you can hear it through the whole house. I'm outside city limits so not sure on the laws about fence height. I made it so that I can remove the top portion in about 15 minutes if needed. (Take it off, wait until the inspector leaves, then put it back on...) My neighbors said it didn't bother them at all so doubt anyone will be reporting me. Just need to clean up the old fence and stain it to match.

    Now I'm sorta debating on what to do first.
    I was already planning on a new custom cover this year, probably in the next few weeks.
    And I want an alarm system on the boat before any audio goes back in.
    Want the new cover before the interior repairs.
    Wondering if it would be a good idea to do the audio before the interior?

    Finding this is going to take a lot more time than I have to give at the moment...
    Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

    Several things can be done at the same time.

    Order the cover, get it going because that takes time man. Then you can get the interior done in the mean time because that takes time LOL.

    Stereo should be last because although it takes time to get installed its not something that needs to be done today vs a cover and new interior.

    If you need any help man or need some space to keep the boat so its easier to fix things let me know, i got a few connections.

    What did you end up doing about the alarm? I have a Mondo on order and will be putting Exile/Hertz audio in. That stuff is not cheap. For the most part when the boat is parked in the garage I won't need an alarm. I am more concerned about grocery stores, hotels, and campgrounds. My '69 Tahiti was parked in our cul-de-sac last year overnight and someone grabbed our brand new tube out of it. See ya later $300.

    I have looked at the TH Marine stuff as well as. I am not sure if a single sensor within the controller is the way to go or if I need to wire hatch sensors, pressure pads, etc.
