OC Hey Adrian,

You tell tell Penguin he will have to do better than my hollow whisker pole, the can of hair spray and the big Irish potatos I grow in my garden.

Adrian If I should ever decide to make that trip I will be appropriately armed. My good friend and special ops quatermaster (aka Penguin) will get the fitting out contract.

We Brits know a bit about Privateering, a euphamism for Piracy, once condoned and actively encouraged by our beloved monarch, Good Queen Bess (God bless 'er).

So, to all you so-called pirates of the South Seas who hang out on the web when your not raping and pillaging, listening to rap and doing 'crack' approach my vessel with extreme caution - there will be no quarter asked and none given.

OC A couple years ago two cruising sail boats headed for the Red Sea and then up into the Med were attacked by two Somali pirate boats. Usually the pirates win when this happens but not this time. The lead cruising boat a steal Ketch ramed the first pirate boat which was about a 30 foot power boat in poor condition, it was cut in half. As the lead cruising boat was cutting the pirate boat in half the second pirate boat tried to board the steel Ketch. The second cruise boat was captianed by a retired CIA officer sailing around the world. After he had been fired on earlier in the ordeal he pulled his shot gun out of a locker, loaded it and caught up the the skirmish in front of him as the pirates started to board the other boat. There were at least 3 pirates on that boat and he let them have it they all disapeared beneath the surface. The pirates on the boat cut in half also drowned. After calling Maydays for hours the French or German Navy showed up took a report and disapeared. The American Navy who had been near by and heard the Maydays did nothing. It is my understanding that with the increase of pirae attacks out of Somalia that our Navy is now taking more visits to the region and will go after any pirates they see. Cruising sail boats heading for the Red Sea and Med now gather in the Maldives and leave from there in large groups hoping that will make things safer. No way brothers I think I'll take the long way around and the ruff seas of Cape Hope.

Philster Pirates abound. My brother ran into some in Mexico a decade or so ago and escaped with the clothes on his back but nothing else. I told him it served him right for going to a Club Med

juro At least they didn't get eaten like the recent cannibal attack on crabbers in Indonesia

Charlie Sean,

Thatís some extreme fishing! I heard Great Whites are common in that area. Perhaps Simms will start carrying a line of machine guns and flack vests for such outings. Does anyone know if there is a round that will work for sharks and pirates?

Ridiculous Clave Part II

Looks like we would get released unharmed...wonder how good the fishing is. Must be good enough to risk pirate attack
