Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Securing dinghy ashore
Bill, I don't know the thickness of the cable I had, what ever Lowes stocks. Did not know it was available thicker . I was shocked how easy it was to cut . Fortunately / Unfortunately we have a dinghy we love , but thieves may love more , a 10.5' AB aluminum with a 18 hp. two stroke , both almost new. You did not say what you used .toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

In my experience, "Kryptonite" flex cable comes in several thicknesses and the one that is between 3/8" and 7/16" is difficult to cut. The thieves usually steal the best available dinghy with the easiest-to-cut cable.
But, if you have a nice dinghy and/or a stupid crook, you may lose your dinghy no matter what you do. BTW, most crooks hate 4 cycle Hondas, and love 15+ hp 2 cycle engines.
