well the other night some jackasses broke into my boat and ripped the head unit and water temp gauge out of the dash. ive heard of people putting alarms on their boats just like a car alarm and was wondering other peoples expirence with this. how does it work? what makes it go off? is it worth it? if someone steals once i am sure they will try it again. so i am trying to thnik of some ways to protect my boat. thanks.

I have one and tested many. Radar or proximity sensors do not work due to many false alarms from cover and leaves, etc. I ended up with a shock sensor behind the dash. If someone hits or jumps in the boat, or so much as breathes on my dash and head unit it goes off. I put the magnetic pin switches on the compartments to cover my amps. They work the best. Two small squares that set the alarm off when they seperate. You can cover any compartment and they work awesome. I can send you a pic if you are interested of them. Let me know.

I can probably find a pic of the sensor online if that is what you are interested in?
