Many moons ago, I had a CB radio and linear amp stolen from my car in my driveway, and my next door neighbor caught the guy doing the same to his. Clocked him with a baseball bat across his upper arm, and broke it.

When the cop arrived, the perp said he was going to sue... the cop asked him, "For what? I saw you fall when you tried to get away."

HOWEVER - the reason these thefts occur isn't because the lot owners don't have the right weapon, it's because they do a piss-poor job of securing the boats and actually preventing them.
