Default F&*king Thieves and Security Camera recommendations

This last week we stayed on the boat from Tuesday to Sunday at Put-in-Bay (local island with good party scene)

I was rafted in off the dock with a group of friends with our boats all stern'd up to a finger pier.

long story short, in 20 years of going there I haven't had as much as a beer stolen. This week on Wednesday, I had a good pair of Maui Jim Sunglasses, a ziplock w/ 3 good cigars, and a Yeti Hopper 30 cooler stolen off the boat.

So now I'm in the crowd that has had a YETI stolen.......and it was a Christmas gift.

I'm 99% sure that I know who took the Cigars and Sunglasses. They were in the cabin of the boat and not placed there until after 8:30pm on Wednesday. After that only 2-3 people were in the cabin for very brief periods of time.

The cooler was most likely took separately.

Anyways, now I'm looking for good recommendations for security camera systems for the boat.

The boat is a 2001 Tiara 3800 Open with a Hardtop. Run in fresh water (no salt)

I'm leaning toward something like the d-Link Guardian Camera's with the recording device and storage mounted in the cabin. (but these are wireless vs wired)
Full HD 180-Degree Wi-Fi Camera DCS-2630L | D-Link

Here are my thoughts on requirements
1) prefer wired vs wireless cameras
2) storage located in the cabin, not on the camera (i.e. no removable storage on camera)
3) network accessible if I want to add wifi hotspot later
4) at least 7 days of rolling storage for when I'm away from the boat.
5) IR capable cameras.

Has anyone installed or used anything on your boats?

Look at HikVision, I have several of them between work and home

They are Wired via Ethernet. The NVR has a built in POE switch to provide power to the cameras.

Thanks, will check HikVision out.

I have a Nest cam at home, but w/ the boat, i cannot guarantee 24x7 internet connection w/ required bandwidth.

I also see that Netgear has the Arlo Go mobile camera that will use ATT, store locally and seems to have pretty good battery life. This might be an option as well.

I'm not opposed to setting up an inverter to run camera system off DC when boat is not on shore power. Normally we are on shore power unless running between islands or just day tripping it at an island.

Dahua does all you need and very good low light capability.

So, you think one of your "friends" stole your stuff?

Are any of your cameras on this map?

I had a friend's brother on the boat and he had a Bulgarian chick w/ him. She was in a spot where she easily could have put the sunglasses and cigars in her jacket pocket.

Oddly, in the cabin that's all I can find missing. My iPad was laying out on the table and 2 computers were in a computer bag right beneath the table. So that tends to make me think the 2 items of convenience were swiped while we were down there.

Those 2 were only in the cabin for 30-45 seconds total and there was a point were she could have pocketed those items as she was standing right next to them. I just can't prove it.

I don't know anything about her. Unfortunately, I don't know the friend's brother that well either.
