    Locking Gas Cap

    Newb to the forum as I just bought a 2012 Bayliner 170 OB.

    I plan on mooring this boat from May to Sept this upcoming summer at a privately owned dock that is accessible to the public, and am a bit concerned about theft and/or potential vandalism. Wondering if anyone can provide information about high quality locking gas caps for this model. Thanks in advance.

    If you are concerned and its valid about someone stealing fuel at this location then I would be concerned with theft of other stuff on the boat and would reconsider this location.

      Hello, welcome to the forum. Please fill out your profile and signature block.

      Does your boat have a permanently mounted gas tank? If so, Perko makes locking caps as well as complete deck fill assemblies with locking caps. Suppliers such as West Marine carry them.

          Gas theft is not much in style these days really. With an internal tank it's really hard to siphon gas out. I suppose it can be done , I've done mine on the trailer with great difficulty. Still it's not something a couple of kids is likely going to do. It's just too hard and not worth it. I'd worry a lot more about easily swiped and sold goodies like Marine radios, stereos , outboard motors and the like.

            I just googled Marine locking gas cap. Hope this is what you were looking for.
