Default Trolling motor mounts: quick release or quick theft

MinnKota has an optional quick release bracket for mounting a trolling motor that enables a person to easily take the motor off the boat. In some ways, it sounds nice to get the motor out of the way if it is not being used. But it seem also that it would just make it easier to steal unless you consistently take the motor off and lock it up.

So what is better: using a regular bolt on mount or a quick release.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Minn Kota's quick release has a provision for a padlock... That's what I did...
