    Yeah but Fanie, in international waters who do you report him to? and who would pay any notice? No good calling "international rescue" when the are miles away - theres a time to talk and warn and a time to act, but when you do act it must be fast and loud - the shotgun is my action of choice, closely followed by some kind of machine carbine / sub machine gun! And a petrol bomb down the hatch! Trouble is the price of petrol these days..............(mind you with an outboard on board and those empty wine bottles how easy is it to make and who would know?)

    Ransom doubled to 2 mil.

    Just harking back to my original post - don't worry, I know these things get out of hand as soon as "the gang" step in. :D

    I've been following the story on Noonsite and the captors have just upped their ransom from 1 to 2 million US dollars!
