PROTECTING YOUR BOAT: THEFT PREVENTION AND EARLY FIRE DETECTION


This session will focus on properly securing your vessel and keeping your investments safe from theft and fires. This two-part seminar will start with the leading causes of boat fires, the devastating impact a boat fire can have, and how to mitigate fire-related disasters. After covering fires, we will jump into trends in marine-related
crime and security measures you can take to protect your vessel and deter thieves from accessing your assets. 

Seminar Takeaways:

  • Guidance on making your vessel less vulnerable to theft by implementing visible and invisible security and prevention measures.
