Doesn't really matter.

 

A thief can buy a key switch assembly with key and simply plug it into the harness and away you go.

 

Takes about 5 seconds.

Right.....that seems kind of painfully obvious suddenly when I read that. 

I guess in the 35years I've been boating, I'm a little shocked I haven't heard of more boats stolen

Most of the boats stolen, espeically in south florida are not driven off the water....thieves show up, hook up to a trailer, run to a remote area, cut off the engines off the transome, cut out the electronics, load everything into a van, and drive off....two big guyz and a lift inside a van and you are gone........takes about 10 min with the new high powered 36 v sawzalls....

This scares the hell out of me considering I'm going to Florida next week and need to park my truck, boat and trailer somewhere for a few days.

I was dragging my prized bbq pit across the country for a cook off and I was worried about the same thing at random hotels on the highway.  I did a locking pin, lock on trailer neck latch and then put a short chain through one rim and a bar of the trailer so to that the wheel coudn't really turn or be taken off, then backed it up to a wall or in between trucks.  I suppose someone could have unscrewed the ball from the truck and or replaced the wheel but that would have been a lot of work.
