I have enough prep to do before and after. Maybe there isn't any other options and then I guess I'll know. Drive locks are nice and blend well. I am more picky sometimes than average as far as looks and how things blend together.
Remember you do not remove it, and it works.

Locks are only for honest people. If a theif wants it he will take it. Lock the prop and the thief will just slam the lower with a 20 lb sledge and walk away with the prop still on the shaft. However, in almost all cases it will be enough of a deterrent to have them move onto the next boat.
I don't have locks though there is a big dog that is usually sitting on the dock.

I have looked at several different brands of prop locks and drive locks and would like to purchase some. The only thing I want to know is how many different keys do they offer? Heck, any good thief can buy 8 or 10 different keys and remove them just as quick and still have the lock. Just curious

I believe that would be enough. Can you buy "keyed alike" for twins, or do I have to buy 2 different ones? thanks
