    That is because US Customs does not require a title, and 72 hour waiting period for the export of motorcraft with HIN #'s, unlike vehicles with VIN #'s.

    There are also real easy to take on the water if the main switch is left on, you can use a almost anything to lift the kill switch and start it. Sea Doo does have one great thing that helps, the DESS.


    I agree the yamis and kawis are a lot easier to start and you can buy lanyards anywhere. Seadoo does have the dess but the lanyard key design is a little annoying when you leave your lanyard hooked up it keeps buzzing. Polaris had a pretty good security system, you enter a code to lock and unlock. Yamaha has a remote key but yeah another thing to keep track of.

    leave the cars outside, put the skis in the garage...

    Garages are made for toys, carports are made for cars.

    And just do what ever you can to make yours lesstempting than the one next to it....

    if I saw a trailer unlocked, I would park next to him, and wrap the ski up in chains!

    Re: Boats most targeted by thieves: Personal watercraft

    That is the one thing I REALLY DONT like about my new honda........if I go for a walk with whoever Im walking with.........someone could just jump up on it and use a peice of string to get it started (just tie it around the on/off button) and take off with it.

    Sure I can program a code I have to enter first. But apparently it has to be 4 digits, i'd much rather just have it be TWO or even ONE digit.

    Re: Boats most targeted by thieves: Personal watercraft

    One or two digits? That would be mighty secure....
    If I sound like a moron, it's only because I haven't typed enough words yet.

    dude.

    First of all it's sorta complicated to even start entering the code.......secondly .... that was my point in a way, I'd rather have a key like a sea doo rather then entering some code.

    I Have no idea how that works on a Honda. But I agree with you, if it's as complicated as you make it sounds, it would be a pain in the ***.
    I'd prefer the key.

    Re: Boats most targeted by thieves: Personal watercraft

    The sad thing is that The Seadoo "key" has been around for several years and neither Kawi or Yami have incorporated this simple technology into their pwc offerings. Most people would be happy to pay $20 more to have it. It is a very simple, low cost fix. Guess it is all about the bottom line.

    Re: Boats most targeted by thieves: Personal watercraft

    As far as taking a ski on water, you can also add a battery switch when not in use, but that adds just another key to your collection. I added one just for the purpose to stop draining my battery when stored but if I ever leave it alone for a bit, I turn that off too. It would probably be more useful on a kawi or yamaha that does not have the simple DESS key.
