Boating is one of Australia's fastest growing pastimes. With more boats than ever in our waterways, the risk of collisions is also on the rise.
Theft is a problem too. Boats are obvious targets because they often have little or no security. Thieves will either try to make off with the whole boat, or target items left inside; such as radios, fish finders or depth sounders. These items are usually portable and easy to trade or sell.
