thread on another forum where a guy drove 1 1/2 hours to lake only to discover he had left his keys at home and ruined his day.......probably would have happened to me also except I never have taken keys out of ignition....actually when my kids were small,there was a few years where I would put ignition key in rod locker but always figured taking key out of boat wouldn't deter someone from stealing your boat so why risk forgetting or losing the keys.....
treat my plug to the boat the same way....if I take it out to drain water,I stand there until water quits then put plug back in...otherwise sooner or later,I'm gonna forget to put the plug back in....

Never take the key out.
Always put drain plug in at home.
Plug goes in when charger is unplugged.

I do just because Iā€™m afraid some [censored] at a hotel could walk by and start it.

Always grab em. They are on a fat float key saver so easy to locate and remember


When I am not fishing I am thinking about fishing. And mostly what I should have done differently my last trip!

I do remove the keys (on a floating chain) and put them in a ziplock bag hidden either in my vehicle or boat compartment.

I had a locksmith make multiple copies, One copy would be readily available.for worst case scenarios (lost or sunk keys).

I've lost count on the boats I've had. I took the keys out one time to change an ignition switch and almost lost them.

My boat is kept on a lift in a marina so I take my keys and put them in my fishing backpack. I also have a spare set, and spare set of truck keys in a separate compartment in the same backpack in case I lose them or somehow forget my normal set.
