Mastercraft Trailer Lock

I just picked up my first MC today. I just parked it and realized a normal paddle lock won't work. What type of lock do I need to get? Any recommendations?

Home Depot or Lowes will have locks. I use a ball lock that has a u shape over the top

I use the same as above for the trailer and our snowmobile trailer. They work great. I think I spent ~$40.

Congrats on your new boat!

If you really want to lock it - get a wheel lock - too easy to crab the trailer tongue if someone really wants it... a wheel lock makes it just more of a pain to steal.
