    Default Inflatable dinghy - security

    Does anyone have suggestions as to how I can secure an inflatable dinghy to my 9m Catalac? I have conventional davits on the stern. I've just had my dinghy refurbished. I'm keen to make it difficult to steal. Thanks

    Chain and a good lock couldn't hurt.

    I use the cable and lock system.

    It wouldn't be easy to steal; they would have to cut the dinghy off the davits to take it, and that wouldn't work for either of us.

    But I would probably have an easier time claiming it on my insurance policy.

    Maybe youd get more responce if this thread was in a more apropriate forum. Nevertheless, i think it's pretty obvious and has been covered above. A decent length of bicycle / motorcycle chain or (much better IMHO) cable like has been pictured above. This would be easily secured round the rail on the rear of the cockpit on the 9m that the mainsail traveller is fitted to.
