I wish more manufacturers would think about that and do what Venture does on the Easky models we have: they mold a stainless steel bar into a recessed spot on the deck that you can run a chain or cable lock through. It's such a simple thing that makes it fast and easy to secure the kayak to the roof rack or to a sizable tree or railing.
On some boats you can thread a locking cable or chain around foot pedal structures or the seat support -- that will thwart a nuisance thief but probably not a determined pro.
