Question Boat Alarm?

Has anybody ever put an alarm on their boat kinda like a car alarm?
My boat was broken in to again this time they stole my speakers out of the cockpit. Earlier this week they stole the deck out of the cabin. I guess im lucky i locked the cabin or they would have probably stolen my amps.

Iwas wondering if it was feasible to install a alarm with shock sensor or motion sensors. I know its not much deterent but anything is better then nothing.
Does anybody have any recommendations. I got a clifford two way with remote start in my truck but thats probably a little overkill.

Thanks
David

If you do get an alarn I'd go with something that also monitored the bilge. Some of them can lower your insurance
