Because you can't shoot thieves in this country, anchor beside them. Nothing deters thieves more than the owner watching them.

Excuse me good sir, You CAN shoot thieves in this country, but in my experience you also have to take out witnesses.

People are not penalised for their actions, they are penalised for getting caught. :-x

Now I don't necessarily have experience with this but I am reliably informed that razor blades spaced at strategic separations on the rope may have the effect of deterring the non owner plundering of hard won goods.

Same source tells me that booby trapping the pot door with C4 is a somewhat permanent solution to the threat.

The latter of course makes for a wonderful spectator sport as long as observed from a safe distance!

I have found that running right up the stern of the boat involved and sinking it's RRs end stops thieves quickly. It's usually a small boat involved.
Then you report the collision and theft to the authorities...your butt is covered.( Throttle stuck!)
