Interesting question, at least to me. How does one protect one's dinghy in moored ports-of-call? Surely this is a real issue?

We had a dingy and a Seadoo stolen last weekend in our marina. 3 am apparently. Police found the Seadoo later in the morning out of gas on the lake. I have a long cable run from the davits on my boat, thru the D rings on the dingy, thru the outboard handle and back to the davit and padlocked. They may get it but they will have to bring the right tools.
