    I'm heading down the keys for a few weeks with the skiff and am concerned about the number of lower unit thefts in the past few months. Skiff will be kept on the trailer at the rental house when not being used.
    Islamorada, Marathon and Big Pine have been hit pretty hard this winter

    Anyone here use a lower unit lock on their motors that they can recommend? Looking for the ones that replace a bolt on the lower unit.

    Have never worried about it...but I do know there are bolts with special head just like wheel locks for your car tires.

    Those special bolts are only a deterrent. They are still pretty easily stolen with them on.
    I wouldn't worry though. They are looking for 150,250,300,350 lower units
