vinyl loops on the front and rear decks of ww kayaks, which served both for rescue and for locking boats at the river access points.
But those loops were not hard to cut with a bolt cutter or the right small saw.
Even heavier locking cables are vulnerable to cutting, and they're really too heavy to carry in the boat.
A light cable and lock are sufficient to stop a drive-by, impulsive thief. If you're facing a semi-pro thief, the only additional thing you can do is to put ID all over the inside and outside of your boat, so that it has much less market value.
