As Summer starts to unwind, Lewes Police Dept. would like to offer a couple of ideas to help secure your boat over the Winter.
**Install deadbolt locks on all doors, and secure ports and windows with inside auxiliary locks
**Attach strong inverted hasps and padlocks to all hatches, and secure lockers with non-removable hasps and hinges and lock with quality locks.
**Remove all portable valuables from your vessel, thereby eliminating possible targets of the thief.
**Maintain an inventory list that includes all boat gear with name, model, serial number, manufacturer, and description of each item. Take photos of the items as well as the serial numbers for your records.
**Secure outboard motors with special locking transom bolts.
If you should find yourself the victim of a theft or have any questions, feel free to contact Lewes Police Department at (302) 645-6264
