Nothing could be worse than going to your boat in the morn- ing or heading out to your boat in the parking lot to discover that you have been hit by some punks who likely don’t even sh and are stealing your gear for some easy money. Thieves always pick the easiest target and Poseidon’s Alarm system acts as an immediate deterrent by sounding alarms and setting off strobe lights when a thief attempts entry into one of your boats compartments. Poseidon Alarms offer an economical way to secure your boat while at home or at the lake. Their unit is not a modi ed car alarm, but rather a complete system engineered for the marine environment. The Poseidon Triton alarm package retails for $449 – about the cost of two road & reel combos. The Poseidon Triton kit contains a cable wrap that offers protection for your big motor or trolling motor, 3 door hatch sensors for securing your rod lockers or battery hatch, strobe light and siren, waterproof alarm module
