Things Are Changing In The Caribbean – But We Have No Trouble Compared With South America

The Royal Navy produces a register of reported maritime pirate attacks every month and it is often surprising or frightening to read the accounts of merchant vessels large and small under attack from modern-day pirates. The ordinary person has no idea what happens with terrible regularity in some parts of the world.

If you read the reports, you will see the odd incident in the Caribbean and Central America – but they are nothing compared with South America. The Horn isn’t the most dangerous part of sailing around South America. Not by a long shot…

    Really? We inn so bad off?
    On march 1, my boat was stolen. 2 years to go at the bank.
    Two weeks earlier, one was taken from St. Peter. Later that month, another one. And those only because I was looking, and heard about them, from people hoping I would not feel so bad….

    Just recently found this site and am enjoying the unrestrained forum for the many topics that will not be published in the mainstream press .However, I think it only fair that if someone is going to give us a blog , why can’t they give a name. It was ok to say what you liked -or disliked -about whoever .That’s great but give a name . This anonomity is way too close to the Klu Klux Klan. Follow the examples of Patrick Porter ,Bizzy Williams and Adrian Loveridge. Yall fraid of grass fires?

    Stop smoking. Put the spliff into the toilet. Flush the toilet.

    Go to bed. You’ll be better in the morning.
