The problem with the other locks (not Sternlock) is they are like Mag locks and only make so many different "keys". It doesn't take much to get a "set" of keys.

I just bought the McGards. Read were there are only a few keys though. Any lock is better than none, plus it shows the Ins. Co's that I at least made an effort. (Will have pictures of drives and props locks on file) Don't want to make them impossible to steal, how else am I goinna get new drives?

After looking at the Sternlock locks, I don't see how they work with hyd steering or some drive showers. The lock is right where the cyls. mount to my rear drive caps.

The performance model stern lock fits your drive, my locks are custom made for all drives, all drives, I said all drives. Steering hardware drive showers it does'nt matter.

I would assume that I would need your custom stern lock (the small one) with my Mercury Racing ITS drives, tie-bar, and drive shower caps on my 382?

Also, does one remove the prop nut to use the prop lock?
THE PERFORMANCE FITS YOUR DRIVE, AND YOU NEED TO USE OUR LOCKING PROP NUT. THANKS CRAIG.

Just a couple suggestions related more to the recovery of stolen property. In any case, these things might only discourage the amateurs, a pro is going to get it if they want it and sell the parts.

Use a Dremel tool and put your drivers license number under the cavitation plate where it cannot be seen. Alternatively you could etch the drivers license number or a symbol in the skeg, and/or drive housing and paint over it.

Same thing applies to trailers, engrave the same info in a couple different places hidden from normal view, and in visible areas as well. Drill a few non-descript holes in the frame that might just help you identify it from a casual distance. Home Depot sells grommets to line the hole(s) in some nice bright colors for instance, this would make it a just a little easier to identify.

There are other subtle things you can do to identify your property, just use your imagination.
