Electronics theft particularly theft of expensive Multi-Function Displays or MFDs has been a major issue in the marine industry for many years. Outboard motor theft is also a serious problem possibly a worse problem.

Consider this: both MFDs and outboard motors are highly visible, cost thousands of dollars and are essentially "bolted" to their host boats. These factors make them attractive targets for thieves wanting to cash in on high-value, high-demand products they can sell on the black market. As a result, boat theft has become a serious, almost crisis level epidemic.

There is currently a lot of industry buzz around the need for a solution, or at least a significant deterrent to boat, motor and electronics theft. The boating public has started screaming for help, and the industry is looking at a range of ways technology can be used to help solve this problem.
