Bob, Talk to Shaun that works for Nor-Tech. He sells a system that may suit your needs.

Bob, I recently picked up a set of remote controlled main battery switches. Kind of neat stuff. Uses a key fob to turn on and off the battery power. They could be installed on the main ignition switch feed line out of site . Won't stop trailer theft but sure would stop boat away theft.

Not only will you know where your boat is but it it is moved on a trailer the system has a thing called "geofencing" and can sense if being moved outside of area. Alarm goes off and you are notified.
A secondary thing is that you can disable the ignition "remotely" from any computer on earth. You can also see ona map where the boat is in "real time" so get the cops to grab up the bad guys!

Thanks ve3lt. That looks like exactly what I am looking for. Seems to be affordable enough as well. They are going to call me back in the morning to discuss.
Do you have a connection with them? I see you are from Niagara where they are located. I was born and raised just up the river in Fort Erie.
Looks like I will need to decide between this unit or the Trunk Monkey ! LOL
Again, thanks for your help.
Bob
