    Cut and sawed through everything! The only secure method is taking them home.

    The seller guy may be quite genuine,taking PX outboards from a dealer so be aware your statement could be libelous!
    If someone damages your reputation by way of slander or libel, you may have grounds to sue for defamation. "Slander" is the crime of making a false, spoken statement damaging a person's reputation. "Libel" is a false published, written statement damaging a person's reputation.11 Aug 2017

    I would happily dump them in the muddy Pill...........which has up to 6ft deep mud!+

    Sorry, just seen this.....You take your own engine cowling off, and replace it with a Cumbrian Police canvas cover. The thieves won't nick it as they would have to go looking for cowls to make the engines sellable, and they can be quite dear. A simple but apparently effective method, which appears to be working. You buy the cowl from the Police or Lake wardens.
