Ok well i will give the reason i started the last thread to do with the wetsounds!!! Basically i got my X star earlier this year, it is my dream to own this boat!! As boats are VERY expensive in the UK compared to the US dollar (About twice the price) i found myself working very hard, saving and still takinga large amount on finance!! (Totally worth it though). Anyway, as i a teacher i get loads of time off an use this to go away to France as all my best friends live over there on Lac Annecy!! So i got there at the start of this summer, arrived a little later than planned (About midnight) after a 14 hour drive and couldnt launch the boat so i parked the boat at my best friends house, right outside where i slept, put the cover and wheel clamp on and just figured we would put the boat in the water in the morning!!!

When i walked outside in the moring, about 7 am the cover was gone, tower speakers, amps, internal speakers, subs, head unit etc!!! Everything was gone!! Luckely all my wakeboards and other stuff was in my truck so it was still there!! Anyway, i contacted my insurance company and was totally insured, so after spending 5 weeks on my new dream boat without any sounds whatsoever i am now back, sorted out the insurance and im expecting a large insurance cheque on wednesday!!! YEEEHAAAA. So i am trying to figure out what i am going to do to make my dream boat even better!!! So any suggestions, bring it on!!! I am sold on the Wetsounds for the tower speakers and my crazy friend who works for a car audio specialist is throwing ideas like flip down monitors under the seats etc However i just want to do a custom job on the inside to meet the standards of everything outside!!!

Thanks for reading my sob story

He lives in England - owning a firearm is very difficult, if not impossible due to legislation. I think you're allowed to own a big stick though.

I didnt say anything about being legal...

What does everybody else do regarding securing items like boards, stereos, and boats themselves, while leaving unattended like to eat lunch or dinner, or overnight? while on trips, or even in front of the house?

Well i do live in england so the chance of owning a 44 mag is quite difficult but i do live on a farm so a shotgun might be an option!!! Blinds were open but the boat was slightly out of my view!!! Getting an alarm this time, no doubt about that!! Also the big stick idea i like!! ha ha
