As part of our services, we promote the idea of holistic security - it is not just security devices or blazing guns.
Security is part of the lifestyle we lead. A great example was pointed out twice this month, once at
boatsecurity.blogspot.com and in Houseboat magazine (Dec 2008) - both dealing with live-a-boards and the safety/security they can provide, as a neighborhood watch type function, and to help with immediate safety events (weather related and manmade). Be sure to get to know your neighbors.
Along the same lines is this posting from Boat Security and Safety Blog -
Have a Happy New Year.
